The striped material I needed got here in time for Sunday football. The only time I have to really get into a project is when The Mister has something better to do that he can do all by his lonesome. Of course, the stripes came with a side order of clearance bunny material that I am tucking away for next spring's apron.
Daddio saw this case when we were looking through the Connecting Threads catalogue last week. He said I should get it so I did. He doesn't talk much these days so when he does, I listen.
I really didn't know how much I would like this thing until it got here.
It holds all those weird spools of thread that won't fit on a standard thread stand.
And it stands up so I can store it with it taking up much room. It was much bigger than I thought and better yet-it was on sale. Daddio always did have a good eye for sewing dodadds.
Ta dah... by the magic of the internet the fall apron is done. They make up in a flash.
While I was putting away the scraps I found this old kit Daddio had bought ages ago and decided to start working on it now that the apron is done.
It's hard to tell but it's for fall potholders. He loved to make potholders. For some reason the pattern melted.
I'm not sure what's up with that but at least I can read the important parts.
