Let us pursue what makes for
peace and for mutual upbuilding.
It is with cheer that I can tell you....I managed to put my knitting needles down long enough to do some stitchery and sewing!! I think it must’ve been the cool weather we’ve had around here. It was very comfy sitting in the sewing shed having a great old time. My favourite crafts magazines are out there, so I pulled up a bit of bark (chair) and flicked through some of them. I came across this cute little pin and needle holder and just went for it.
The original pattern had ric rac running down the side but as I have a love of buttons, I thought I would change it a little. It measures about 3 in x 7in and a very handy little accessory to have.
I recall making a pact with myself not to purchase any more yarn....well that went out the window on a recent trip to the craft shop. Couldn’t go by a great deal. Buy 3 balls get one for free and they only cost $4.60 each in the first place. I suspect I’ll be back buying more now. Lol
Managed to make a bit more progress on a wall quilt I have been working on for some time.
Stitched with love
Someone had given me this panel with backing and wadding, so I’ve started quilting it. That was part of my work yesterday in the shed. It’s amazing how much you can get done when the weather is cooler.
I text a friend yesterday to see if the stork had delivered her nephew....seems the stork’s GPS isn’t working....he’s lost, no delivery yet! Hang tight Ashlee.
A few pics of my childhood haunts being torn down...not very happy but at least I have some pics to look at and remind me.
This makes me happy though.....the island of Burano, Italy.
See you all another time.
