Good Intentions!

When I blogged about the "Just Needle and Thread " idea that Bonnie Hunter came up with, I said I was going to work on my applique projects that I still have to finish. One was the last 4 blocks of Garden Party, and the other was my Japanese Crane panel quilt I was going to finish embroidery and applique. Well, during my vacation in September, guess what I did? I worked on my knitting! Hey, that's needle and thread too, right? I have been making the ruffled scarves to give as Christmas gifts and I also made a few for my etsy shop. In all, during vacation and since I've been home, I made 7 scarves, and have also gotten 2/3 of a sweater vest for fall done. Here's all the scarves:

Unfortunately, the applique projects are still waiting! I also have the September block for the Christmas Town Sampler to do! My hand sewing does have a new home though! I found one of those lovely sewing caddies that expand out with lots of compartments for sewing tools and projects at an antique mall in Lincoln City Oregon during our vacation. I've always wanted one and finally found one in great shape at a reasonable price! Here's photos:

I love it and it looks great by our sofa. (in these photos, it's sitting ON the sofa! LOL)

Go to Bonnie Hunter's blog for more Just Needle and Thread posts.

See my next post for my design wall photo!

God bless
