The beginning of a strap for our name tags
This one is a little further along
This one is just ready for trimming .
Busy at work making the strap .
This is a thread catcher bag in progress .
This is my finished thread catcher , a large pincushion on top weighted down with kittie litter and a recycled yogurt container to catch all those stray threads .
This is a better look at the seminole piecing I made for the bag .
I also made the strap and name tag holder , my strap is a little wider than the others as I was just using what I had left from my first project which was the bag . I therefore made my name tag area larger to accomodate the extra width of the straps and also it made room for my other guild pins. I am really quite pleased with how these turned out and I will definitely be doing more Seminole, a little time consuming but the results I think are awesome.
We are bracing for yet another storm this evening , no snow yet but it is coming so time to batten down the hatches and get that handwork out to wile away the evening hours , let the wind blow but please don't blow out the lights ;-) Thanks for stopping by today and hope where ever you are that you are safe and warm .
