Another quick project

This is a little project that I whipped up recently, using a pre-created crazy quilt block I had in my stash.  

Nice to hang over the arm of a chair so your sewing tools are at hand.

- If, like many of us, you have a hard time thinking of Christmas gifts for your husband, how about doing something like THIS?   And if you go HERE there are lots of ideas for the men in your life (most have links to commercial products, but nevertheless the ideas are good). 

- If you plan to give some lottery tickets this year, rather than putting them in a Christmas card and envelope, how about THIS idea for packaging?

- There are some really cute little knitted Christmas stocking ornaments HERE.  

- There are some nice ideas HERE for making your own gift baskets. 

Today's quote is from Samuel Taylor Coleridge..."Advice is like snow - the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks, into the mind"


  1. I really should make one of those for over my couch arm. Thanks for the links.

  2. A beautiful stitching caddy, Mary Anne!
    I love the colours!

  3. What a pretty sewing tool holder. How fun (or maybe distracting) that would be to look at while stitching. :)

    1. I don't stitch in my living room chair or on the couch so it's not something I really have a use for....probably will be a gift for someone at some point.

  4. Lovely post and links. I've saved the DH idea and enjoy using my own armchair chatelaine.

  5. What a great use of the panel. It looks great. The DH idea is a very cute idea to do. You sure find very cool ideas.

  6. So very pretty! What a lovely gift that would make too. Love the gift idea for husbands with the 12 days of Christmas and those gift basket ideas. I'm as usual doing 95% of my shopping online . . . I hate stores and crowds lol!

  7. That is a lovely gift. I'm sure whoever receives it will find it useful. Great links today too.
    xx, Carol

  8. That's a useful, beautiful project.
    Staying organized in style.

  9. Lovely chair sewing organizer. I used to have a wonderful platform rocking chair and I have to adm I used the upholstered arm as my pin cushion. Your CQ is beautiful. Thank you for the guy gift ideas...I always struggle with those. Great quote dear. The days are flying by...

  10. Love these little fabric sewing dealios! I don't have a chair that would hold one, but I bought a similar thing with a weighted bag at one end (a woman was selling them at a local craft shop) and I can use it at the edge of my table. I don't put much weight in it, but it's a great pocket for holding snipped-off threads, etc.

  11. Oh I love the crazy quilt block! Great place to put that TV remote too.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
