Greetings all...I hope this finds you healthy in the confines of your favorite sheltering place.....home sweet home!!!
It's been a fairly busy week ...I started out by making 30+ face masks for my niece, who is the administrator of an assisted living facility in the Baltimore area. She had put out a request on FB and I felt the need to respond. There were quite a few tutorials on YouTube, and they were not hard to make...not ideal for the situation but better than nothing. I hope the supply chain picks up and turns this around soon!!!
I have had a finish-finish this week....Little Dumpling Travel Bag by Thistles. Mine was a lit (leftover from a class at Market) but there are charts available. It was much easier to put together than I anticipated and turned out so darn cute!
My new start is an exclusive kit from Salty Yarns, A Fish Tale by Hands on Design. I love the colors in this.... so beachy!!! The design features a box lid, three fobs and a pincushion that all fit in/on a drawer style box. The kit is all inclusive..fabric, full skeins of WDW, the drawer to finish it on, shell pins, a waxer, an ort jar, a coordinating thread holder, a fish ruler, fabric, trims and cardboard for finishing and all the instructions. Cathy's finishing instructions are superb!!!
|This is the band for the pincushion.|
A reminder that I have a drawing going on for a With Thy Needle and Thread or JBW Designs chart. Please see my previous post and enter there by commenting and stating which one, or both, that you'd like to be entered in for. I will draw two names, one for each chart on the 31st! If you have previously commented and are not an official follower of my blog (found on the sidebar), please become one so you are eligible. Also, if you are a no-reply blogger, I can't contact you by e-mail so be sure to check back to see if you win and, if you do, get me your contact info so charts can be mailed.
So please everyone, be safe, stay home, wash your hands, stitch the day away...... and we'll get through this! Sending virtual hugs!!!
Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
