Ready to Go




This is my design for organizing hand sewing needles that incorporates some hand embroidery on linen and some scrappy quilted goodness on the inside. I may make some changes on the next one I make. We'll see after I get feedback on this one from its new owner and giveaway winner, Jacqueline.
I laid out all the goodies that will be heading to Jacqueline this week. The apron made from a thrifted vintage tablecloth, the thrifted vintage notions, some autumn coloured fat quarters, a handsewn velvet apple pincushion (because the valley where I live is known for its orchards), the needlebook and some dark chocolate. Congratulations, Jacqueline! Hope you enjoy these sewing bits and pieces as much as I enjoyed gathering and making them to give away.

Ack! Stop showing us these tantalizing pictures! This contest loser is sobbing ;) The needle holder is lovely.

And on a different note . . . I wanted to ask you (each of you?) a couple questions for a submission I'm working on for Home Ed Magazine, but I can't find e-mail addys. How to contact you? Thanks!
