on the go ...

Made a couple of 'on the go' mini clutch wallets - there is a pocket for cash or a debit card and room for a cellphone and other incidentals.  It's a design from Sew4Home.  It would make a nice gift bag, too.  This one is a gift and I forgot to take a photo of the one I'm using. 

 I quite like this pincushion design.  The chart included instructions on how to finish it, which I really appreciated .... and now I have a new method of finishing in my repertoire!

This winter has been a long one with lots of snow, with a lack of sunshine, and without the usual break of a spell of mild weather. The  good only good thing about this is that I did 
a lot of sewing and stitching throughout the winter.  
 To make matters worse Daylight Saving has arrived but our province stays on standard time year around.  With everyone else changing time, including the satellite tv schedule, 
we're always often confused . 
And I really question why DST has to start sooner and end later than it used to.

Your wallet is so cute, Kate and it's always nice to have a new type of finishing technique :)

I sure wish daylight saving time would just be abolished and we could keep the same schedule all year! Good luck with your transition period :)

Cute wallet Kate, and that pin cushion is stunning. Have to say that after a very very grey winter I am looking forward to English daylight saving.... we change our clocks the last weekend in March.

Kate that pincushion is a great one - and I love the way it's been finished!
I know what you mean about daylight saving... I have never liked it and here in WA we just don't need it

I was searching an idea for Mum Mother's day...I'll have to try this
she would be very pleased to have this kind of useful thing =)
we are entering our 3rd day with snow !!! in March !!! too much snow, about 40 cm in the garden and the whole North of France seems to be paralysed...
but as soon as I have electricity I can stitch =D
Big hugs

Hi, returning the following! I'm guessing the pincushion is a Joan Elliott?
