This week I did a little sewing project that turned out so cute that I will make more. It's a triangular thread catcher. This appealed to me because of the geometry of it all: a perfect equilateral triangle turns into a tiny receptacle for your orts. I found the directions for it on the blog "Needling Things". You'll find the directions very easy to follow with clear photos to guide you along. The only change I made was to apply "soft" fusible interfacing to one of the fabric triangles. I know exactly what I'm going to do with this one, and will include a photo in an upcoming post!
I've been making a little progress on "Folk Eggs" and will have a photo update soon. I'm starting to think about that Kitty Kalendar again, and might work on that a bit. Saturday is Stitch Day and I'm looking forward to seeing my stitching group. We meet at the Stitch Store one Saturday a month. Sometimes that doesn't seem like enough! It's always a fun time and I get in a lot of stitching time, which is very much appreciated.
I just had to share some photos of what's blooming in my yard right now. The fringey looking shrub is a Chinese Loropetalum. It's always been a healthy plant, but has never bloomed so profusely as it is now! I see this blast of bright pink whenever I look out the dining room window.
I now have 60 followers! You don't know how it makes my day to go to my blog and see that another person has decided to follow my blog!
