satisfaction


Sometimes you just need a quick make, a satisfying little bit of sewing that takes hardly any time from start to finish. I was in need of such fulfilment this week and chose to make these cute little baskets using Ayumi's Organizer Basket Tutorial


It just so happens that they each fit six spools of Aurifil thread perfectly!



My tidying / decluttering / cleaning kick continues and I'm pleased to say my house is looking all the better for it! I still have a lot to do and am working my way round the house bit by bit. Each room is making me happy as it gets sorted out. Cute storage baskets that serve a purpose help too! I expect I will be making more and filling drawers with quilty goodness.

I taught a flying geese cushion class today and had such a lovely group! They were very productive and created gorgeous designs. I love seeing the mix of fabrics and everyone being creative with their layouts:


This week we enjoyed a little snow (which is already melting), the baby girl couldn't stop saying 'SNOW!' but my eldest girl was ill and grumpy :(


Wishing you all a productive and sewing filled weekend!

  2. I love those little baskets! My three would love to wake up to snow. Sadly, I think the last time we had snow here was about 30 years ago! :)

  6. My DIL sent me a video of our 2 year old grandaughter running for joy in the Manchester snow. When DIL asked "what is it Rose?" She thought it was a request for a photo and complied with "Cheeeeeeeese". So cute.

  11. Those storage baskets are fun... Are you considering colour co-ordinating them with the threads to go inside?

    Poor older sister... no snow play, ;-(

  12. I made 2 pillow covers this week for precisely the same reason! Your little baskets look especially sweet filled with pretty threads :) Your babies look precious in the snow, too!

  13. Fun fabric baskets and a much prettier way of organising threads than using plastic containers. I can imagine your flying geese class was lots of fun, I so agree it's always great to see the different colours people use. Happy snow fun, I hope your eldest is feeling better soon.

  14. Quick finishes are always fun! Those baskets are great...I'm sure I could find a use for some at my house too. When you finish organizing your place, would you like to come do mine? It sure could use it :) The snow play looks like it was fun too! Thanks for linking to TGIFF.
