Kitties and Yo-Yos
These are the weeks of report cards, grading stacks of student's work that seemed to be laid aside for a better time . . . WHAT was I THINKING?!? Where is my magic easy button? Oh, well, I'm plowing through. You know, I earned my name "Pokey"-!
Lydia's MIL-to-be loves cats, I think they currently are owned by 4 . . . .
Mrs. Wise's birthday was last week, so this charm tote was a joint venture by Lydia and I. She did all the collecting, cutting and piecing, and most of the quilting. I was involved in the final construction.
Lydia even made the neat zipper tote to match!
With my work (and actually we've had some fairly serious 'illness' in the family) I have sure missed the sewing machine.
My friend Leanna has been yo-yo busy. I was hoping to show a few things that she literally made into two yo-yo project kits for me, I'll show eventually.
But, she brought in this table runner today, and I'm so excited to share it with you!
She does such beautiful stitches, . . .
I cannot believe how tiny these are!
That's our U.S. quarter, so these finish at about 1 inch . . . .
I have my quilting class tomorrow, I'm helping my friend Ginny with her first quilt! Maybe soon, I'll be back to sewing! I hope, . . . .
Happy Quilting, Pokey
