This is my little green box from the TS. It will go in my bathroom after the remodel.
I had a bowl that I had picked up last summer, and I had painted it blue. I was very lazy, and I had painted it without sanding it. It rubbed right off. So we sanded it and repainted it. The bowl and the box are the same color-- They are the color of the bowl. The box in the picture didn't show up correctly. I used Acrylic paint, the color was Goose Feathers, and then I stained it with Minwax wood finish, Red Mahogany 225. These were just colors I already had. I loved the way they turned out. I wanted to repaint everything that color! :-)
I wanted to share with you, a little needle keeper.
My daughter in law had made herself one and I loved it! She is always making the neatest things! One of these days I'll get the widget on my side bar to download a pattern or two, but in the mean time, here's all you need to make a needle keeper for you embroidery box or bag.
Contrasting inside fabric
Needle and thread
Cut your fabrics and batt 6 1/2" X 3 1/2"For button loop, cut on the bias 1" X 51/2" of inside fabric
Finger press again, and sew down the center of your keeper. This will be your fold. Sew button on the outside, making sure to sew through only the top fabric and some of the batt. Do not catch the inside fabric at all. These were so fun that I made another one and then another one and another one and another one........LOL. I instantly put mine to use! They are a fun fast easy useful little gift for anyone who does hand sewing.
Here are the promised pictures of the "view". This is what the Basin looks like this February. This is looking west from the yard, where only this morning a couple of big big coyotes ran past and across this Field towards the creek.
This is looking southwest, over the mountains and Indian canyon, is Price.
We live surrounded by mountains on all sides. Hence the "Basin". The Great Uintas are beautiful Mountains . While I have been sewing or painting or folding that endless mountain of clean clothes, or vegging, I have been watching some of these.......
Thanks for staying with me through this very long winded post this morning! Hope to see a needle keeper or two..............Lewaina
