Here it is the end of Monday and I am just getting around to writing my Scrap Basket Sunday post!! I have been trying all day but just haven't got there! I was determined to link up this week as I haven't for a while, and you know me, I love playing with my scraps :-)
Thank you Kim, of Kims' Big Quilting Adventure, for hosting Scrap Basket Sunday. It is always interesting to visit others to see what they get up to with their scraps. Click here for this week's link-up.
In my last post I hinted at getting into my sewing palace and having a tidy-up ... I didn't get very far because a) I have little willpower and b) I got distracted!
Never mind, this little pouch is the result of that distraction......
Happily made from scraps and bits that were lying around. I think it will be pretty useful as it's a handy size. Quilted with some cotton batting which gives it a nice bit of body.
Her second book, With Bold Needle and Thread was released this year and I was able to get it using the rewards programme, Flybuys. Still focusing on those years of the 1930s to '50s, this one includes patterns for 'vintage crafts with a modern twist'. It is a real cornucopia of photos and snippets of information, excerpts from old magazines and so on. A real browse-y interesting book. It reminds me of when I was a child...when we used to go and visit Nana and Poppa I would lose myself in the spare bedroom where Nana had her sewing. I spent hours looking through her books and patterns and spent a lot of time writing out patterns to take home with me... of course I didn't made many of them but I loved collecting them all the same. Some things never change!!
As I look at the clock I see that my Scrap Basket Sunday post on Monday is soon to become a Scrap Basket Sunday post on Tuesday! I'd best stop babbling :-)
Thank you for visiting, I always appreciate your visits,
