Testing Times...

Yes, it's that time for all teachers 

in the Southern Hemisphere....


corrections, report writing,

prize nights and transition meetings!

Sewing time has been rather infrequent...

but when I saw on FB 

there was a free Kindle download to be had...
I could't resist!

I had the ideal fabric,

sent by my + and X friend, Carla...


with a perfect name!


It's not that I needed another pincushion!


But the little thread catcher was perfect 

for 'couch surfing sewing'!


I definitely need a place for my loose threads!


It might just save some vacuum time...


which should make Mr PnP happy too!

Happy sewing!

Susan

  1. That is brilliant Susan! With my recently found addiction to hand sewing, I most definitely need to make me one of those - thanks!

  14. It's great to see how you've made good use of that lovely charm pack from Carla. Such a practical thing to make, especially since it appears you're well stocked with pin cushions! So sorry to know about your extra workload now. I hope this busy spell passes quickly.

  16. Love this Susan......I can certainly make use of a pin cushion like this. I do a lot of sewing on the couch. Marie (mlismore@optusnet.com.au)

  21. I suppose I'm lucky that (a) I'm not a teacher and (b) my kids are still too young to be worried about end of year "stuff". Very cute thread catcher/pin holder... I'm sure Mr PnP was impressed!

  22. Your thread catcher/pincushion combo is beautiful made and bright and cheery too. End of school year will sneak up on us all too soon.

  24. Hope you made it through all the exams and can now relax and put that cute pin cushion/thread catcher to good work now!
