I signed on for the Birthday Siggy swap (I did mention earlier that I was a real pushover for siggy swaps).
Since everyone deserves a gift on their birthday so I thought I would enclose a Wonder Wallet with each one.
When I got home from work yesterday I cut out 20 of them. They don't take long to cut and you can get two from one fat quarter. I then sorted them into colors that could use the same thread color. Changing the thread can eat up time. Especially if you have to fill a bobbin too. No I do not have a sidewinder but if anyone gave one to me as a gift I would enjoy using it. I mention this only because sometimes my daughter reads this blog and I thought I could give her a hint.
Here they are, all lined up with the correct thread and pressed and ready to stitch. Time to go downstairs for the evening.
This morning I got 14 of them sewn. Six more to go.
I made these years ago for friends and my Dear Lu asked if I could make a few for her friends too. "Of course", I said but alas I never got it done. I called her last night and suggested she stop by before I mail them off to select the ones she wanted. I will probably make 10 more next week. Tomorrow is breakfast with the girls and mornings are when I can sew.
Saturday I will be in the garage packing up some odds and ends and getting that area looking a bit more spiffy.
Sunday is another open house for us. I keep hoping the Lord will find the right buyer for us but so far He has us treading water for some reason. I understand that He knows best but my human nature is wanting to move NOW.
