I have been doing so much hand sewing lately that it felt good to set it aside and just do some mindless piecing at the sewing machine last night!
With NOTHING on TV, I downloaded a Audio Book from our local library and I was in heaven! I picked a GREAT story, ‘The Litigators’ by John Grisham….nothing like a couple of bumbling washed up, seedy lawyers and a multi-million dollar case..oh and then throw in the ‘new guy’…a young lawyer hard up for a job…well let’s just say, hubby had to check up on me as I was laughing so hard! (no straight jackets needed…YET!)
So while listening to the Audio Book…this is what I pieced….bowties fit for any lawyer to wear…bumbling or otherwise!
I cut these out a long time ago when Bonnie Hunter offered the Bowtie Challenge…It’s an EASY block to make…you need two 2” background lights, two 2” darks and for the centre of the bowtie you need two 1 1/4” of the same dark fabric.
The idea is to get rid of all those small scraps…which is what I hope to do!!
Hey, remember how I said that I won those Wonder Clips on Anna’s Woolie Mammoth Blog…well I think by posting about it, it must have jarred the mailman into action because looky what was in the mailbox yesterday!
LOVELY labels for the back of my quilts (…guess that means I have to actually finish one!!)…and this sweet coin purse full of these lovely clips!
I finally got my thread keepers up…Sewing machine threads on the right and hand quilting and applique threads in the middle. Oh and check out my bobbin keeper…it’s an old yardstick that I found at a Garage Sale..
Here’s a close-up for you…
Every inch I put a small nail to hang a bobbin…and now the yardstick is full!! It looks like I am off GSing this morning…got to find another yardstick!:o) Ahhhh…it’s SEW good to have a purpose!
…like this!! Is there anyone else out there who, apparently, throws NOTHING away?! What’s with this? And I didn’t even KNOW that I had a problem!!
Have a Super Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P
