What should I do first?

Do you ever feel like you never have enough time for your hobbies? :) Boy I sure do and then when I get a little free time, I can't decide what to work on first. I have been learning to sew and I've been spending some time with my machine and making fun sewing things like a little wallet, a cover for a little pack of tissues, a table runner with pumpkins appliqued to it, and other assorted happy little things! Stamping cards has taken a backseat lately while I explore my sewing machine and prepare things for the season's craft shows.

I did sew and stamp some sweet little lavender sachets using an assortment of Papertrey stamps. Here are a couple of photos but you can find several more in my Splitcoast gallery

Well, I have to run - already late to pick up my DH! I will come back and describe the process of creating these and add a supply list later. The inspiration for these sweet little numbers came from Heather Nichol's blog. You can see the tutorial on Nichole Heady's blog under the Introducing Rustic Branches post here.

Edited to add supplies:
Assorted Papertrey sets and inks, Perfect Match ribbons and buttons and coffee stained muslin cut using Nestabilities.
