I haven't exactly been idle...
I have been hand quilting my Happy Days while I wait, good progress is being made, just one small corner to do and then I need to decide what to quilt in the border
I made a sewing pouch for all my hand piecing/EPP tools, so I can keep them together, this is a Lynette Anderson pattern, I changed the embroidery design to use some of her buttons that I have had for years; it's very useful and holds everything I need.
I also made a thread holder for all my appliqué threads and tools; I bought one about 20 years ago from Pat Campbell, but it had started to shred, so I copied the design and made it a bit bigger (room for more threads 😀) The clever part is the strip of Ultrasuede sewn to each pocket, you can thread your appliqué threads through it and then just pull off a length without opening the pocket.
(I have since discovered that Karen Buckley now sells these, but her's are smaller like the original)
