Summer finishes

I've been sewing a few new things this summer, but I haven't gotten around to photograph them until today...
I actually made two runners like this one- one as a sample for the shop, and one for our dining room table. I fell in love with the fabric when it arrived at the shop- and I just had to make some Ohio Star blocks with it- the line is Civil War reunion from Moda. 

Next is this cute shopping bag- the pattern is Jordbærdrøm by AnnAKa, and the fabric is Full Circle by Moda. Most days I have to go by the grocery store to get something for dinner- and this bag is the perfect size. One day I'll get organized again and plan our dinners a week at a time- but at the moment I am doing the planning day to day. Luckily I have to walk by the grocery store on my way from work to the parking garage..... Makes it easy to pop in and get what I need :-)

The last one for tonight is this cute drawstring bag made from at kit I bought a couple of years ago at Quiltegården. I still have some of this cute fabric left over, so I want to find a small project for it- maybe a new pencilcase or a small makeup purse :-)
Hope you enjoyed my little "parade" of finishes- have a wonderful day, and thank you for stopping by!
