Here are a couple of little things that I keep near my sewing area.
This first one is one of hubby's favorites as it keeps the shape pins corralled
It's just a old pill bottle with a small hole punched in the lid. It hold all old and broken shapes .... needles and pins
|I used a sewing awl to punch the tiny hole in the center of the lid, just |
big enough of the needles to pass through
Sew that you do not find them when gathering the garbage.Or on the floor with ones feet.
Note I do not keep any magnetic items near my sewing machine as they tend to scramble their brains.
Well those are my tidbits for today.
Stay in stitches
a note to Squirt ... I will have a look for some ideas on a memorial quilt or see what I can draft up for you, You could also check out Moda bakeshop as they have a great number of patterns and great directions.
