Sewing kit pictures

I'm enjoying a cooler, but sunshiny day. I played some fetch with Glenna. She had her annual visit to the vet Tuesday and he said she's overweight. Sigh. I hate to have a hungry dog around begging for food. I learned she does like frozen green beans for a treat. And, more fetch should be on the agenda. We walk 30-40 minutes a day already.

Here are the promised pictures of the sewing kit progress. The needlebook cover and a thread cutter on a necklace are finished.

Scrap Block, Beaded Sewing Kit, and Socks

As if I need a new project. Yes, crocheted socks! I bought a book last summer in Oregon. I finally bought yarn and here is the beginning.

I can hardly wait to see if they fit when I am finished with them.

Now to update my other two projects:

Here are more motifs on my scrap block. I think I'm going to start the seam embellishments and then see if more motifs are needed. I worked on this during our crazy quilt group meeting today. It is so inspiring and lots of fun to meet with these ladies.

The beaded sewing kit now has the needlebook cover finished and a necklace made for a thread cutter. Stay tuned for pictures.
