A new project and Bias tape maker in use

I had forgotten that when I was in the time crunch to get my last project done that i had taken pictures of my bias tape maker in progress. I love this little machine! (Simplicity Bias Tape Maker) I was literally able to get all the custom bias tape cut out, sewn in strips and pressed in just about 15 minutes. Since I was literally making the bias tape just an hour prior to leaving for the airport it was a huge time saver!

I am now onto a new project... A birthday gift for my daughter, It is the tote size Sweet Harmony bag form Amy Butler. I also plan on making some goodies to go inside it.
I have one month until her birthday, which normally would give me plenty of time to get things done. However, early tomorrow morning I am heading over to the hospital to another surgery done on my knee so who knows what condition I will be in over the next several weeks.

If any of you have made Amy Butler bags you know that there are a ton of pieces to cut out as well as a ton of iron on interfacing and fleece to apply before even getting to the sewing portion. My plan: have all the pieces cut out prior to surgery and then hopefully some time next week get into the sewing room to do all the applying of the iron on interfacing, etc... I have my ironing board all set up at a sitting height so everything will be ready for me to work on.

Project all cut out and ready for me to work on

Parting shot: This was my sewing room just a few weeks ago at the turn of the New Year!! What a disaster with literally no floor space to move and stuff piled everywhere and in bags, bins, cardboard boxes.
