Little Things


Today I found some time in my sewing room, over Christmas it had become the general storage area.  Today I reclaimed it. Although I have lots of UFO's I could have worked on I decided to make a thread catcher as in Chooky's stitch along. I had some cute fabric just made for the job!



cute fabric




Then I got on and finished this little cup bag by Natalie Bird from the Stitchers Dream Day out in Toowoomba Last September. I ended up giving away the first little bits and bobs bag to our lovely Emma to begin her sewing journey so I thought I should make another to match the cup bag.....and then use the scraps to make a patched thread catcher...  Overall a cute little set.  I just love matching sets. 





Then matching fever just got me and I had to make another little stitching purse to match the cute thread catcher............


 It was just fun playing around....



Today I spare a thought and say a prayer for all our friends needing rain for drought or fires ......
