Sew Day

Elizabeth and I had a sew day at her house this week. It was really wonderful. Mostly because well, we're friends and it's always fun, but extra fun for me because she's got pretty things and a sewing room chock full of goodies and trims. And fabric. And it's all tidy and nice.
We've been wanting to do a project together and when I saw these sets at Target they looked ripe for some darling embellishments. Embellishments are right up Elizabeth's alley, believe me. I told her about the sets and she went right down and got them. She's a doer. I'm a talkerabouter. Good thing she went they were down to their last aqua when she got there!

Look at the table, just crammed with goodies. I don't even own any pompom trim. That seems criminal, doesn't it? I'll have to rectify that. And get a load of that pin cushion of my dreams with its vintage fabric. And just off the photo.. cookies. You know only coffee could have made this better.

Look, I think I'm arty!

Stay tuned. We worked on one set together, and then each kept one set to work on at home. I can't wait to see what she comes up with. Even more, can't wait to see what I come up with!!

If you're a talkerabouter... then you're the best talkerabouter ever... a genius mind you have, my friend. Genius!

How dang cute!!! I can only imagine that you and Elisabeth will come up with something super, duper adorable. I'm still working on the video/movie from market...it is taking me forever. I don't want it to be too long but some of the video is too funny and I don't want to cut too much out. Oh well...maybe by next market...ok I'll try to get it done soon. Let's just say...you've made the cut.

Oh, I cannot wait to see the end result!! Everything looks so yummy.
I love that pincushion. I bought a small one for my friend at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah. It actually fits on the thumb so you can pull a pin and stick it in while you are sewing. I wish I had bought one for me. :)
