My older daughter takes ballet.
And during her class, I sit downstairs and hand-sew binding on whatever quilt I'm currently working on.
And I get to talk to a sweet friend, whose daughter is also in ballet class.
While she crochets.
And yes, people stare at us.
But I don't care.
But I decided that I needed a good way to keep my hand-sewing things together.
Not only do they go to ballet with me, I've started taking my things when I know I'm going to have to wait.
I made this. The fabric was a gift from my sister in law. Don't you love it?
And when you open it, it looks like this.
I love the thread-keeper.
It has a handy little built-in pincushion.
And a nifty pocket for my scissors and seam ripper and thimble.
I've really enjoyed this--it's come in handy for me. I was thinking about writing a tutorial.
Is there any interest on that one?
