I really enjoyed stitching this "Blessings Angel" by Michelle Ridgeway. It would make a beautiful gift, made into anything. Right now I am focusing on doing the stitcheries, not turning them into anything. CD in picture for size reference.
My favorite website crafty.com was having a sale so I picked up these tiny 2.5" mini charms. Here is my new potholder. I think it is ugly. I am a terrible quilter. However, I m still quite proud of it. I love it and will smile a little more in the kitchen while using it.
After searching pinterest for ideas, I figured out an idea for a thread holder. Since I'm rarely sewing anymore with the machine, I wanted a way to store just a few spools. Most of these are for handwork. Luckily there was a five year old handy for the sawing, sanding, and hammering involved in this project.
