At the beginning of September I came across a post by Jess at the Sometimes Sewist and joined her in pledging to Sew Selflessly in September.  I actually made a pledge to make at least 3 items for other people.  Well, I have exceeded my pledged amount and have already heard that the recipients of my gifts love them!

You may have already seen the posts for the Quilted Farm Book and the Owl Tag Toys.  If not, feel free to click the links and have a read.

With 5 days of September left, I am not sure if I will get the chance to make anything else for others but I am very pleased with what I have made up to now 🙂  Thanks Jess!
