One project I have wanted to revisit for some time is my armchair sewing caddy. The original was bought as a kit at craft show in 1998...pretty trendy at the time with the obligatory suffolk puffs & charms. It has served me well but was looking a bit tired. I was determined to update and while DH slept yesterday afternoon I made this one. I love it...from American Jane fabric lines...Wee Play & Punctuation with a dash of vintage ricrac and a nice red spot thrown in. I love a good red spot!
It looks spiffy on my dark blue lounge and I had great fun "organising" it. I have filled the (lined) pincushion with ground walnut shells to add some weight to deter the mini lion of the house who loves to hide my pincushions!
For Christmas my "sister" Bronwyn made me this wonderful felted wool pincushion (also wisely weighted)
and this bag for me to take to work. It is made out of Nurse material (I didn't know they made it!),
and the back has a little watch on a fob chain & nurses hats! Very very special!
This year I hope to blog more, stitch whenever I can & enjoy my family.
A good plan.
