Stitch Stroll (29) .....and Plump Pillows

Today's piece is a favorite of mine. It was one of my first classes with Betsy Morgan and I took it at The Loudoun Sampler Guild in January 2009 (how can 8 years have passed so quickly???) . Betsy comes up with the cleverest ideas for projects and this is definitely one! It's called Mermaid's Stitching Bag and is actually two sections. The top is a small ditty bag that nestles into a bottom section which is an ort container. A cute little scissor fob was also a part of the class.

I also completed a little sewing project that has been on the back burner a couple months. Our new sofa did not come with pillows and I thought it needed some to add some color/interest. I had my granddaughter helping with these yesterday though she quickly devolved into filling my pincushion with the pretty colored pins!


I'm sure it will never look like this again as the pillows scatter about and my stitching takes reign over moi "section".

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Lovely Mermaid's Stitching Bag. Love the scissor fob. The pillows on the sofa are great!

  2. The ditty bag and ort container are precious. I can see why they are a favorite of yours. Great job on the pillows!
