Hi There . . .

Haven't blogged in a while, actually two weeks! Wow! How time flies. I've been sewing a lot, babysitting my grand kids, traveling to Seattle and, of course, working.


Today I wanted to share with you one of my prized positions for my crafting. It's a little bag that my grandson, Paddy, made for me. He made it from paper, tape and twine. (It actually has some illustrated instructions drawn on the front in pencil! Cute! --Hope you can see it out from the picture.) It's a neat little paper wastebasket, that I use when I am sewing. Each time I snip a thread, it is right at my finger tips waiting for the discards! Now more threads all over the carpet and me!
I hung it on the wall right behind my sewing machine! Or if I am working on a larger project that needs more space, I move it to the chest of drawers right next to my sewing desk; it's still handy there . . .


And since I have been sewing a lot, I wanted to show off my latest creation from my line of novelty pillows. This is my Chicory Blue Deco Pillow. I just love the color of wild chicory when it blooms at the side of the road, so I thought I would create a pillow in honor of the under appreciated little flowers!
Actually creating a few more in this line, a pansy pillow and an lovely Echinacea flower pillow. Watch for them in my shop!

Yep, Padraic recognized the bag and he noticed that you had to fix it with some tape! :)
