Things I'm playing with

Here are a few newbies I have discovered, some old, but I wanted to show them off.
My Statewide sewing centre had these, never seen them before, but boy, what a great tool! It's designed for hoodies etc, but I managed to put elastic around a pair of Holly Hobbie baby bloomers (in store with matching top soon) with ease. No more grabbing the blasted safety pin!
I found this, which will save me many trips out at the last minute. It is 3.5mm wide. not the usual size for little girls skirts etc, but I have it handy if anyone runs out haha


These little packs were made up at Savers the other day, I thought of the Handmade Help and re-stash a crafter. They are little packs like a sewing kit, I am actually thinking of making a pouch and keeping it for 'emergencies' in the glove box (I don't have a first aid kit, but hey, a sewing kit is first aid isn't it? I could do stitches....)

Coupla patterns- great for my pinnie phase

Oh, and can someone please come and do my dishes for me? I've been sewing.....

Funny my sink usually looks like that too when the sewing machine is buzzing, (read always). Lucky you finding all those goodies, and yes you do need emergency sewing things in the car! Enjoy

How scary that you've been in my house taking picture of my sink!!!
We've just done 5 days worth of dishes (disgusting I know) ... but when you're working, exhausted, blogging and trying to to a bit of craft - the dishes don't rank very high.

Glad to see I'm not the only one with dishes piled high.

I'll take your dishes and raise you a sink, table and bench of mess!

That threader looks amazing. I love it; I want it :)

I want one of those threaders too! It's just about time to start making pants for the nephews for winter so there's going to be a lot of elastic threading going on.
Love the dishes shot!
