I don’t have a lot to blog about today – I’ve been reading a bit trying to get three library books finished before they are due. All on my kindle – the way it works is if they do not have a book you put it on hold – when it becomes available they let you know – well of course I had 3 on hold and they all became available within 3 days! So for the last 5 days I have been reading to get them all done as I didn’t – not – want to accept because then who knows how far down on the list I would go right – so now I am on the last book that I have from the library and I thought that was a good way to spend my time while waiting for my thread that I ordered on Saturday for the quilt.
I did get a little stitching done on the Round We Go circle star – not done but half way – and little else other than cleaning the house. Linking to Sew Fresh Quilts , Jo’s Country Junction , and Susan at Midweek Makers #94 and My Quilt Infatuation .
Seeing as I had nothing else I thought I would share this stitchery that Melanie gave me a year or two ago – she did the stitching I turned it into a fabric box – I have had numerous things in it during that time and it always collapsed and didn’t hold it’s shape then all of a sudden one night recently while reaching for a tissue a light bulb went off in my head and I got up and got the pretty red stitchery and – wouldn’t you know a small tissue box fits in it perfectly.
Here is one side:
Here is the other side – two beautiful pieces in one – just turn it whenever you want and you have a different design. I remember when she was making it that either she or I had seen a stitchery made into a box so when she was doing the piece she made it in such a way that I could then do the sewing and turn it into a box. It is lined with a Princess Mirah Batik fabric that I had left over from the second Dear Jane quilt that had made.
Maybe I will have more to blog tomorrow?
