Those who know me, know I am not a selfish person.  
I am always giving of away "stuff", volunteer at many places
and am happy to share my blessings as often as I can.

However, this month of SELFISH sewing, just for me was fun!  
I had plenty of things I kept putting back on the shelf, 
sew I could make something for someone else.  

Here's my selfishness one last time.

I had hope to use this fabric to make a bag...didn't happen.

But I did finish this bag from my WIPs! 
Have NOT found the perfect button yet for the front. 
Sew a bag is a bag is a bag...right?

Made these "Pick up Sticks" blocks in February
while I was running around Florida.

and finished this lap size top for the challenge

This 2wenty Thr3e jelly roll was rolling around my stash for a while and with a few changes to the Play A Card Pattern

I made this lap size top!

I had all the blocks done for this Turning Twenty Pattern 
 top "before" March , so this was a quick finish. 

I also made backs for all 3 of these tops to be machine  Kwilted (by me) in April.

I did have a few days that I barely squeaked in the 30 minutes
 cause I was a bit under the weather.   Found some WIPs to finish.

A "Spring" table runner

two mug rugs

and I sorted some stash to sell on my Etsy shop,
 Sew, I think that counts as selfish time.

Thanks sew much to Sarah at Berry Barn Designs for
