Thanks, Part 1

I saw this project on a sewist's blog and it is so screechingly simple. I could make a hundred of these in one day, I bet. I don't want to, but I could. Right after I made this I realized I had no tissues to insert. A few minutes later I had to move two full-size quilts into the quilt closet but there were four vintage purses in the way, so moved them out and put the quilts in. I decided to clean out the purses and found lots of money and stuff and a little purse-sized packet of tissues!! Perfect!
This ornament will be a gift. I had a bit of fun making a box for it and a "nametag" (free-motion wrote the giftee's name in red on white batting, pinked the edges, slit the batting and slipped red ribbon through it). Getting the buttons for this was a three-hour process because I got side-tracked sorting through a gallon-sized bag of buttons! Remember when the buttons on pea coats had anchors on them? I found a lot of woven leather buttons from preppy tweeds we used to wear in the olden days.

It is always fun to go through old purses! And even better when you find treasures! Very cute tissue cover. WE did those at Bernina club one year.

I hope you and Bhu had a great thanksgiving. Tomorrow I am laying tile so I can put shelves in the sewing room and start getting things back to normal! Then I can sew!

Patty, I can't believe you are from Ridgewood! How about that! We switched places, more or less! It is an adorable place -- I love it here! xo
