At my house I've been making gifts

Moo had a birthday last week, and since she’s blaming me, loudly and often, for her new addiction, quilting, I thought I’d better make her some pretty accessories to help her cope.
First I stitched up a string-pieced needle case (front and back shown here).
Then I made a scissor case and bought a pair of stork scissors to pop inside.IMG_3484Finally I created a thread-catcher, and filled it with possibly the most important ingredient for a happy stitching session – chocolate!IMG_3482   IMG_3490 If you’re the tiniest bit observant you’ll notice the theme fabric I’ve used for all Moo’s goodies.  A couple of years ago I came upon this “moo” fabric,  and just had to have some. 
In fact I bought enough to make gifts for my friend Moo for a long time to come!

  2. Love that "moo" fabric (I remember seeing it here a few years ago), and it's perfect for your sweet Moo. Love the things you made. You're so thoughtful!

    Moo will love them especially with that special fabric.
