Selfish Sewing

In all fairness to my sewing it’s nearly all done for my own pleasure. However when I’m in the middle of big projects with deadlines (that are not in the super near future) I almost lose the will to go on…. Sometimes I stop all together but then I struggle to start again. 

This time at least I’m still at my machine. In between sessions with the 2 projects for Festival of Quilts, I’ve been working on a needle book. I hope it will have enough space for my (stupidly) large needle collection. Plus pocket with clear PVC and a scissor pocket. Besides I have been doing demos of hand embroidery so the wool felt squares I have chosen to make up the pages are doing double duty. When it’s finished it will become a reasonable example of lots of different hand stitches. 

Side note – I’m getting to play with my teflon foot 😃
