Just a little One!

This is what I have been up to today...a little holder for thread and needles. Not much to show, I know, but I have been very sluggish today, as we had thunderstorms last night that literally shook the house and kept me awake...hated it! We have had 134ml rain so far, but the garden desperately needs it! I have been practicing my hand quilting in a cross hatch (which my thread keeper is sitting on) I am loving it!



Hoping to get my Gardeners Journal together tomorrow, but I need some wood for the potbelly in the sewing room first...too cold without a fire! Have to be nice to hubby for some firewood!
I hope you are having a great weekend!
Lisa
