..here but nor are we Speedy Gonzales either.
Some days I am just lucky to get done the house hold chores that need to be done.
I do not do well doing the evening sewing thing.
My best times are ones I plan and get an early start.
Did finish up the New Beginnings Sewing Kit.
Now to make the drawstring bags.
I waited for this awesome fabric I had ordered from
Pumpkin Patch Primitives Quilt Shop to begin.
For some reason US Post Office decided to ship it from New Hampshire via Denver to Va!
Took almost 2 weeks for it to come Priority!
Not Brenda's fault by no means.
Just a fluke I hope!!
I used this pattern but enlarged it some what for the chair caddy.
I did not do binding, just sewed it up and turn, top stitched.
Works out fine and sews up faster as well.
Filled with DMC, pins, and stuff.
This is my own idea for a needle book and scissor keeper.
You can make any size you want really.
Just a simple circle fold over.
I made the pocket on the back for the scissors and made a heart fob for them as well.
Used wool inside for the needles.
Loop and button closure on it.
Do hope the stitcher who receives it will feel encouraged knowing others care.
I did finish trimming up the 2.5 inch leftover bits from my Fall Bonnie Hunter Pineapple Blossom Blocks.
Now to see if I can make them work in my border somehow.
When looking for a book...yes again! GURR!
I found these old wee blocks needing trimming as well!
I think I was going to make a Bear's Paw with them way back when.
So now trimming them up too !
Will use in some way, at some time!!
Waste Not Want Not as the saying goes!!
Wishing all who are cold and shut in with snow/ice much warmth!!
Keep the Faith... Spring will come!!!
