Yesterday while at Heritage Quilt Guild meeting, I HAD to go and check up on fellow quilter, (and partner in crime) Greer’s progress…she has been working on THIS! LOVE her quilt blocks!!
When I say that Greer is my partner in crime I am referring to the fact that SHE is the one who told me about that one lone Snowman Gathering KIT left at the Red Barn Quilt Shop…which was now on SALE…so of course I HAD to go and check it out……and ended up buying it! So of course it was ALL Greer’s fault!
Anyways…while ohhing and ahhhhing Greer’s work, (how could I NOT? Dang cute!!) I noticed this pile of bags…hmmm…?? Look…wee bags with balls of Valdani…all labeled…
with colour number and size…and every colour that the pattern calls for to match the wool in the kit! Incredible! And if you look closely you can see the tail of the thread coming out of each bag…she doesn’t have to remove the ball to pull the thread out…which means no tangles, no balls rolling away on her… NO BALLS HIDING UNDER THE COUCH…LOST IN THE DUST BUNNIES…FOREVER!! Nope not Greer’s…her balls are pristine and at her fingertips! BRILLIANT!!
I wonder where I can find these wee bags?
Yup, organization is key for Greer! She knows where her thread is…and she NEVER loses a needle…just look at her Needle Keeper! Pins on the left, needles on the right…packages of needles in the middle! (I could set this to music!!) But to heck with the needles and pins…LOOK at the cover!!
Is this not the cutest!!!
Look at the French Knots for hair and all the fancy stitching!! I’d say it pays to be organized! Maybe if I was organized, I could stitch like THIS?
Food for thought…
Now if you are interested about becoming more organized and perhaps…becoming a better stitcher …and would like to know more about this pattern you can go HERE! It’s a Reet’s to Rags to Stitches pattern and it’s called, ‘Get Your Act Together’. OK I made that part up…it’s called ‘Needles and Pins’…but…I kinda like my pattern name better…maybe THAT’S my calling!!
Thanks for sharing, Greer! We will continue to keep our eyes on you and your ‘Warm Winter Blessings’…and feel free to throw any other organizational tips our way!! :o))
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
