Minutes For Me Sewing

I took a day this week to just sew something I wanted to sew.  Not the things I plan to check of a list of accomplishments.  I was thinking about the idea behind May For Me - taking the time to do something just because you enjoy it.  I was able to sew bags I had cut out some time ago and I really did enjoy working on them.  I have made at least 20 of these bags and sometimes I go on auto pilot and make a mistake or two.  There was some use of the seam ripper but I did enjoy the process.

Each of these bags was made with someone in mind and will be going to them soon. 

This was a Minutes for Me sewing project that ended up lasting a few hours.

My May for Me plans include increasing my exercise, the main part of that will be making walks with our dog much more consistent.  She is very excited about this part of my plans.  I will have to share the scenery we enjoy on our walks in a post.  We are expecting some sunshine soon here which always helps when it comes to outdoor exercise.
