It’s snowing and I have cabin fever! But I haven’t just been sitting around whistling Dixie. Yesterday, since I couldn’t get out of the house to go to Happy Scrappers, I made some sock ornaments and some little wallets.
The pattern for these Scrappy Stocking Ornaments can be found at Stumbles & Stitches. The pattern shows them made with scraps, but I didn’t have time for that, so I just used Christmas fabric.
I love these little wallets. The above picture shows what they look like when open. I have several of different colors in my purse to help me get organized. For instance all those little punch cards that I collect when going to various Fabric Stores are kept in one of these. No more digging around in the bottom of my purse, or wondering which purse they are in, or wondering if they are still on the dresser where I left them when trying to clear out the clutter in my purse. The pattern is by Valori Wells Designs for Stitchin’ Post Publications.
ON ANOTHER NOTE: How Joyful has a wonderful tutorial for a sewing caddy and detachable pincushion.
Many thanks and much appreciation goes to the women who work diligently each month to make quilts for those in wheel chairs. Kudos go to: Yvonne, Mary T., Fran, Joan, Mary Ellen, Barb, Lee Ann, Nancy, Mary.
Quilting for Kids With Cancer
Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
This blog is dedicated to the women and men of West Michigan who would like to attend the Attic Window Quilt Classes. This is where you can see the class samples and pictures of the teachers. Be sure and stop back from time to time to check out what is new. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
