Everything you made is beautiful Michele! Thanks for taking my advice & posting pictures. The table runner is a great way to turn scraps into something beautiful & useful. The headbands are adorable & look very warm. Love the beaded coin purse, the pattern is very colorful. Thanks for sharing with us!

Love the table runner and nice headbands. I'd love the pattern. I've seen the yarn but had no idea what to make with it. LOL! I found the pattern on Pinterest. Thanks.

Got a little selfish yesterday and decided to make a little basket to sit by my sewing machine and hold my small tools when I'm working on a project and want them at my fingertips. Lately I seem to drop them on the floor all the time and have a hard time seeing them on the floor. I hope it works. Basket turned out nice, but I think my days of working with black fabric are just about over -- sew hard to see the detail. Pix doesn't really show all the quilting as it's black on black. But I just HAD to use my fun Singer fabric and am pleased with the results.

Beautiful things Michelle! I love the headbands. They look so soft and warm. You have been very busy. Thanks for sharing some pictures.

That’s a nice basket Jean! I hope it comes in handy for you. I really struggle working with black yarn when I crochet, so I know what you mean. I have to use the brightest lights when I work with black yarn.

I have one of my grandmothers every day sugar bowls she used, it has a hole and crack in it, so I repaired it best I could with china repair glue and since it wasn't really functional for sugar anymore, I made a pin cushion out of it. It wasn't an expensive one at all, but, now I can enjoy it every day even if I'm not sewing, for it sits pretty on my desk and makes my heart happy.

Great job of repurposing the sugar bowl, April! It is fun making pin cushions from cups and other china pieces.

Love the basket Jean. April your new pincushion is so precious. I just finished Valentine pillows for the 2 youngest grands. Pictures coming soon.

I wanted to join the feedsack swap, yet again, but didn't... I'm not a great seamstress and while I love to "try" my machine makes me swear allot. Yikes! So, I will be watching for sure! And, admiring!

My machine was giving me fits yesterday so I had to get it straightened out. I'm sure moving it around so much and not being in use for a while didn't help. Gave it a bit of oiling and I was off sewing. Of course since it had been a while since I'd done any sewing I had to spend a little bit of time ripping out. After that I gave up. Will finish up today.

2 little owls that say “Owl always Love You” ready for the 2 youngest grands. The heart pocket will hold a card, some stickers and of course a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.
