In the process of trying to clear the kitchen table, I finished two small projects. The first was replacing the zipper in a bag for a friend. The bag was a souvenir of a trip to Hawaii. Two weeks ago I went to Joann Fabrics with the bag and found thread and a zipper in colors that were very close to the original. I couldn't match the zipper pull or the thicker teeth of the original zipper, but I think the repair looks good anyway.
I also finished a small project that's kind of been hanging around for a few years. Last week, when I was raiding the fabric stash looking for something else entirely, I came across some fabric with (what I believe to be) Japanese kanji. I had purchased that piece of fabric years ago to make a pillowcase for my daughter. I have recently come across several good pillowcase tutorials, and used this tutorial to make the pillowcase. And now my daughter can finally have her pillowcase!
