Today is the Me, Me, Me Monday.
Yesterday our wedding anniversary came and went, we all did a bit of what we wanted and I got busy sorting out some projects for patchwork club and had seen a great tutorial for a thread catcher.
Needling Things explained it really well and they are so easy to make. The first one I think is a bit small for a thread catcher, I didn't think the topstitching was a great idea because when I sewed up the catcher, you could see where I wasn't exactly on the same point... it's fab for holding my Aurifil, needle, scissors and thimble. I realised the other day, my aurifil had sat on the coffee table since I made the pompom on what, Friday and there's always stray thread floating around the settee. Not now :O)
I decided for patchwork club, as they like to do it all by hand that we'd make bigger ones, I enlarged the pattern to 12.5" and made the 2nd one out of some Lark cotton.
I filled it full of buttons but I'm thinking it would be lovely with some nice sweets or chocolates inside for a Christmas project/quick gift....they do literally take minutes to make.
Also, when I was in the UK I manged to find a suitable kilner jar, I've had Amy's Tutorial marked on my favourite list since she posted it in December, but i've been hunting for the correct jar, I got busy on Sunday and whipped it up, I'm filling it full of my pins and need to buy some more. It's a super quick and cute project so please go and check it out.
Now for super exciting news, I'm hosting TGIFF on Friday and there will be a FABULOUS giveaway for all those linking up a finish, it's one you won't want to miss so go on and get busy finishing off those projects :)
