After dropping the kids off I headed to Lowes for plants and soil. I have 5 tomato's planted, 2 peppers and a new rosemary plant all in planters or in the ground. I got two little $1 gardens for the kids - a salad one and a taco one. They will get to do that as a project next week and watch them grow. I also planted some mums into the beds for some color this fall. After that and a quick shower (it is hot out there in the sun!) I had a quick lunch and then sewing time started.
First, I made my Grandmothers Choice block for the week. This is 8 inches finished.

Then I did a midget but that will wait until Tuesday.
Then.... I remembered I promised dance shoe bags for the kids. Do I have a pattern? Nope. Emily wanted butterfly fabric and I had some leftover from backing the baby quilt. I just winged it and came up with this reversible bag. Now, if I can remember what I did! I need to get truck or car fabric and make one for Aidan tomorrow!
