Pocket #2

I finished the Tea Time Basket! It is all sewn together and ready for display. It turned out nicely but it wasn't a fun stitch. Tedious is the word that comes to mind. But I am very glad to have finished it. Since I am done with that, I can move on to more fun projects, like the Blue Ribbon Sewing Box. It is going too fast. I finished the second pocket and am almost done sewing it together. The last thing left to stitch is the mattress style pyn pillow. I haven't made a mattress style pincushion before so it will be good to see how it goes together. I did make a heart by Lauren Sauer but the directions were so bad and the fit so off, it doesn't count.
We saw a few flakes of the white stuff yesterday but it is all gone.
I found some small projects to take on my trips and now I have to see if I have the threads for them. I think I need another bin just for leftover threads. The floor of my sewing room is littered with them. Literally.

  1. You must feel so good to have made all this progress. The Basket looks great and I can hardly wait to see the Blue Ribbon Sewing box all completed (but know I have to wait until June for that!)
