Hi Stephanie! You sound like a very busy lady! Sort of like me...about 15 years ago; only I didn't make time for sewing back then, except when we moms made our show choir's costumes. (All three of my kids were active in that, and our 2 foreign exchange students!)
I mainly enjoy sewing clothing, but also make purses, and occasionally small quilted items. Have you tried any of the "Pieced Tree" patterns for quilted table runners or wall hangings? They are very easy and fun to sew.
Keep at it Girl! Marsha
