From new fabric

  While folding and cutting strips from the new fabric, I asked myself the "What if..." question and got caught up in finding out.  Based on my "Let's Book it" project for this month, so I will wait to show it then.  Hopefully I will have a completed flimsy today.

   The watercolor is still on the design wall....I need to add the final border when the inspiration strikes.  Some things just need to simmer a while, right?

   So a little instant gratification was needed.  I tried out a quick tutorial for thread catchers that I had pinned on Pinterest.  Too cute!  They are small but perfect for catching snippets of thread, and they take about 30 minutes start to finish.  And I got to dig through my button boxes to finish them off.

  I am looking for inspiration for next project and just seem to be in a lull.  With all the new fabric, I am pretty sure it will involve those florals.
Happy stitching.  


  1. You little snippet of 'show' is very pretty and I have seen the little thread catchers some time ago, but aren't they cute!

  2. Borders rarely come easily to me. Hopefully you will be inspired quicker than I ever am! : )
    Cute little thread catchers. Looks like one I was gifted last year, that I keep beside Gidget.

  3. Your Watercolor on the design wall is beautiful. I love those little thread keepers and made lots of them for gifts. Have you made these super easy ornaments?
    I have made them in lots of different fabrics and they mail easily too. Creative Sewing Bliss...
