    Belly bands for a dog rescue group. I made a big bag of them. They are very simple.

    DH and I made a new trampoline for our Tornado (catamaran). This prompted many requests from sailing club members for repairs, which we turned down. I did make new curtains with snaps for a friend's sailboat. We will be re-upholstering the seats in the glider planes this winter.

    Odd request, to make a super insulated Cape for tooddler, that would fit in car seat, so they could bring child in / out of babysitter without putting on snowsuit. I declined as I don't really sew for money. Craft shows excluded.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Guinea pig sleeping bags. My cat sitter is part of a guinea pig rescue and adoption organization. I never even knew there was such a thing as guinea pig rescue or guinea pig sleeping bags. But I've learned a lot about them from her (interesting little creatures!) and I've been making the bags for her for a few years now. They offer these for sale to people adopting the piggies and the money goes towards care and feeding of the animals while they are being fostered and awaiting adoption.

    Adam and Eve costumes for a play. Thank goodness for artificial fig leaves! Oh, and just two weeks ago, I made a Stanley Cup dress for a local St. Louis Blues hockey fan. Last year, my neighbor asked me to make fabric fan blades for his ceiling fan.

    Amazing - it's true, once people know you can sew there are no limits to what they think you can make. Really interesting variety though. Thanks
