It's Wednesday again, and although I seem to have had lots of time for sewing, I haven't found much time for blogging lately, except these weekly Wednesday posts, so I am thankful to Lee at Freshly Pieced for hosting this link party and keeping me regularly (though definitely not enough) blogging.
I have had a productive week. I got my Lark baby quilt basted and quilted. For this quilt I used a feather X design in combination of feather wreaths in every other block to give the look of X's and O's- like you are wrapping your baby in hugs and kisses. I am very pleased with the result and am proud to have finally conquered a good looking feather wreath- I have been working hard on them. I just need to get the binding on this quilt and I will be all finished and quite happy to be putting it up for sale in my etsy shop.
caterer friend asked me if I had any ideas of something that would hold her spices when she went to different events. I thought about it for a while and eventually came across these small glass vials with screw top lids- and I thought I could make a roll up out of these. I have made many crayon roll ups for child's gifts over the years- but a spice roll up was a new venture. I ended up making mine like I do my quilts with a layer of batting, some free motion quilting and binding to hold it all together. This protects the glass vials very nicely. My customer wanted a roll up to hold 30 vials- and I am quite pleased with the results. While these vials work great for spices they also could be used in many different ways- they would be great for a beader on the go, or could hold lots of sprinkles and food colorings for bakers- and I am sure you all could come up with even more ideas! I hope the new recipient really loves their new spice roll up.
etsy store- which would be a fantastic Mothers day gift. To win all you have to do is comment below with what you would store in a glass vial (spice) roll up- or follow my blog and enter that in a second comment for a second entry. The winner will be randomly chosen next Wednesday, and announced here for WIP Wednesday. Hope all of you had a great week too and Thanks Lee for hosting another WIP Wednesday!
