Half Moon Patchwork Pouch...

Another zippered pouch, but this one is for ME!!! I love everything about it - the semi-circular shape, the teeny tiny size and the fabric.

Open Wide Zippered Pouch...

I do so love giving handmade gifts. They always seem to go down well with the recipients and I like making them. This year, however, I'm hoping to avoid the last minute rush of 2014.

Thread Storage ~ Unique Solutions...

Today I thought I'd show you how I store my reels of thread. No fancy schmancy thread racks in my sewing room. Not because I don't like those lovely wooden racks. Simply because I've gone for low cost thread storage solutions.
