I have been silent for over a week, mostly because I have been preoccupied with family matters. We had two graduates in the family this spring- our oldest from college and our youngest from high school. We held an open house party on Saturday. That took most of my time last week. And today I was finally caught up enough for some me time. :)
I spent the morning at my monthly applique class. I am still working on the block from last month so I can't show you a picture yet. I have some more embroidery to do on it, but it's almost done! Hopefully it will be finished by the end of this week.
This afternoon I made a needle and scissors holder case. I got the pattern for it here. Since I am doing more handwork now, I thought it might be a handy thing to have. I didn't much care for the written directions on this one, but I am a look at the pictures kind of person anyways so it was no real problem.
I had a small piece of hand marbled fabric that I bought in Hawaii that was screaming to be used for this, so I gave my needlecase a tropical, Hawaiian theme complete with a honu petroglyph and a plumeria bloom. The pictures show views of both the inside and outside.
