Sew & Tell Friday: Burned Out

I've been doing nothing but car seat blankets for the last week.  I'm officially bored of them.  The Artisan Fair is in eight days and after that I will never sew again.  (Except Christmas presents, which I won't be able to blog about.  So, I guess this is goodbye.)

I thought this collage expressed exactly how I feel.  I think there are only seven car seat blankets here, but two of them are reversible.  And it really seemed like I made this many.


And I didn't include the custom order I did late last week.  I also made three potholder/trivets that need bindings and an AWESOME giant flower quilt with Amy Butler "Love" fabric.  I think I need to spread out my projects to make my relationship with Sew & Tell Friday last a little longer, though, so I'll post those later.

Go see what everyone else is doing at Amy's blog!

Wow. That is a great deal of work! :o) You have such beautiful creations and will be special touches for mom's to carry their babies about. :o)

Good gracious, what a lot of work to make all those cute car seat covers! You certainly deserve the weekend off! Thanks for sharing!

Wow! Are you on caffeine overload? I'd have to be if I'd sewn that much. They're all just great. I hope you sell out at the fair! Thanks for sharing. Happy Friday! :o)

I can see you have been a busy bee. The covers look so pretty and I'm sure they'll be gone before you know it. Looking forward to seeing your new quilt.

Please tell me your house is a mess and you have a huge pile of laundry waiting for you...
