I reorganized my craft room today. It started out as just straightening up to get to my table so I could sew a special order. I got carried away and here are the results. I now have room to store my finished items. The nice thing is we already had this shelving unit in our basement so I was able to repurpose it.

Besides all the sewing I have been doing for Thursdays on 1st I also altered a bunch of dance costumes for Elizabeth's dance teacher. Here is one of the costumes I made for some little boys.
Here are some of my favorite skirts I sewed for this summer. I only sewed about 40 skirts, 20 messenger bags 100's of hair flowers, 9 capes and 20 appliqued shirts :)
I will have to get pictures of some of my appliqued shirts and onsies later.
I just started Thursday's on 1st Street this month. It is basically a craft show with all handmade items every Thursday during the summer. My friend and I have a booth. This year I got really into it and sewed like crazy. My house of course was a wreck but at least all the sewing helped me stay sane :)
Here's a picture of some of the stuff I've made:
I've made about 9 reversible capes and sold all but 2 of them in the 2 weeks I have been out there.
This is a Frozen cape:
I also made Superman/Batman capes.I had a blast designing princess skirts. Here is one of the Frozen skirts I made:

I had a lot of fun creating all of these fun Easter decorations. I used my Silhouette to create all of these projects. I am in love with the print and cut feature on my Silhouette. It makes things go together much quicker. I am so ready for spring. Maybe if I keep these decorations up spring will come sooner. I am so tired of looking at snow!
I use my Silhouette to cut out the applique for this pillow. I also used my Silhouette to cut the words out of White sparkle heat transfer material.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the appliques for this wall hanging I made for my craft room.
I made this car seat cover for a friend.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the appliques for this Monster shirt and stuffed animal.
