Geraniums and Sewing Baskets.
I have a new purchase.
Something that really makes me glad every time I look at it.
I've placed it at the front door, so that every time I come in and out- it makes me smile. Lifts my heart and makes my day.
Here it is...
Sometimes, it's just something small and cherished that gives you enormous pleasure and makes your heart sing.
Doesn't have to be expensive.
But when you look at it - it brings out the smiles.
That's the way it is with my geranium.
And stitching. There's nothing nicer than to find a cosy spot to sit and stitch.
These are the things that feed the soul. A necessary part of being.
Just little things.
Here it is- your first project for the year.
The Girls Own Sewing Basket.
Easy to make- and you can keep all your sewing bits and pieces in one place. It comes with its own scissor keep- and you can use the needle keep we made last year for your needles. And keep everything in the pockets.
I've given you a small amount of embroidery to do on the Jumbo ric rac. Just for a different look. If you don't want to embroider the ric rac- just attach as you would do normally.
This is a great little bag for holding a project, scissors, patterns and various other odds and ends.
I thought it would be something that everyone needs!
Here are the instructions. As before, I'll put the instructions on the Blog as a jpeg file so you can see them- but to download and print them out- click on the link.
NEXT TIME! I have a really gorgeous little Scissor Keep for you to make. It looks like a strawberry- but the top folds back to reveal your needlework scissors!
And there's a little beading! Just for excitement!
You'll be busy this weekend!
NEXT TIME: I'll also have more details about the Girls Own Stitching Club!
