A Needle Case for a Friend!

 My friend and I decided to make each other a needle case!!!  Just for fun you know!!
I subscribe to Primitive Gatherings and they had the cutest three needle cases in the latest issue.
 Fun to make from wool felt.  The interior has a pocket for your scissors, a pocket for marking pencils or floss as well as place for your needles and pins.
My friend loves her needle case!  My daughter likes it too, so I am making her one.  Will post pics when I am finished it.
Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day!

As American As Apple Pie?

 Oh, the halcyon days of summer!!!!  When ones thoughts turn to swimming, lazy hours at the pool, BBQ's, and summer foods.  The kids talked me into making candied apples for them.  They look good don't they!
All I pray is that there will be no visit to the dentist as a result!!!  Happy eating kids, but be careful!

A Few Finishes!

I am so happy to report a few finishes after my post admitting how many UFO's I have.  I have been plugging away at projects and now have five crossed off my list.  The top table runner had to be quilted.  I made it as a class sample a few months ago and just needed to quilt it.  I am very happy with how it turned out.  Gotta put it one the table now and enjoy it.
 The gingerbread men/ ladies is table runner which I made two years ago.  It was also just waiting to be quilted.  It was a fun little project to make.  I used my cookie cutters to trace out the shape of the gingerbread folk.  So, it is ready for Christmas.
I feel so much better because things are moving off that daunting list.  I can't show you the fifth finish yet as it is a gift for my friend.  I am happy to say that working on projects off our list is working well for her too.  She also has five finishes.  So, grab a friend and commit to holding one another accountable for finishes.  It is fun, as well as motivating.
