Isn’t Time Flying

The days are flying away on me, not long now until Christmas. I have been so busy on the committee of Calico Christmas Show  that my sewing has been on the back burner of late. One of the traditional things we do on the 3 days of the show is wear an apron. Up until about 2 years ago they were a standard large red apron. In the last couple of years we have had pretty aprons. Here is a photo of the ones we wore this year. We all had the same fabric kindly donated by Wrights Fabrics, but we could make IMG_1659 whatever we chose.

  Today I managed to finished a Christmas Exchange Gift for a friend. I had to slightly modify this as there was no weight in the pin cushion to hold it on the table, so I added some ties, so it could be tied around the the motor part of the sewing machine.

Its for all those pesky threads you need to cut off, and usually put in a plastic bag taped to the table.

Thanks for dropping by

Your apron is really cute and I love the colours you have chosen for the pin cushion and thread bag - very handy items. Hope you get some time to stitch soon. Take care.

Love the apron Sue, you look ready for anything wearing it too!
Love the thread catcher, and very clever way of attaching it to the sewing machine.
