A Wee Bit of Sewing Going On


I'm staying busy but not in the sewing room where I'd like to be. I've managed to get a little bit done though.

My bird pinkeeper/scissor holder doesn't look quite as good as Renee Plains does in her book, but it's growing on me. It is filled mostly with walnut litter so it's pretty heavy. Would work for a paperweight too!! It's another gift so I am hoping the recipient will like it.

I got the third block made of "Under the Big Top". I'm having fun working on this quirky quilt!!


I am planning on posting the McLinky for the Strawberry fields quilt next week. I can't wait to see all the quilts. It's ok if it's not quilted but it would be nice if the top was together. It doesn't take much time once the blocks are made.


Have a terrific weekend!!

  1. I think your little bird pin keep is adorable Lori and the "under the bigtop" blocks are very fun and bright!

    I've had too much going on to be able to join in the Strawberry Fields making, but I will be excited to look at all of the completed tops and quilts.

  8. I like the pinkeep. I have seen some cross stitch patterns for pinkeeps in that shape and wondered if I could get one to look like it should.

    i've finally decided on a fabric for the background of my Strawberry Fields quilt. ended up choosing a completely different fabric from all those interviewed . . . prewashed this a.m. and am now going to hunt up the cutting instructions and get back to business on this one.

  26. Enjoyed seeing your bird pinkeep by Renée Plains. I worked with her as her book editor for A Bird in Hand. It's always neat to see others actually working on the projects from the books.
