Sewing Pocket (warning–photo heavy post)

Here are the photos of the surprise I made for an exchange with my friend, Maggy, who lives in France. She finally received my gifts once the volcano ash cloud let up. It is made from a Drawn Thread pattern called pumpkin pocket. I made the one for Maggy and a second one as well. It was fun to make…although I like the lighter fabric better as well as the orange flowered button.

Maggy has a small collection of tiny snails, so I thought I’d add a scissors fob for her with a tiny snail.

May 1st is Les Muguets, friendship, day….so I included a bouquet of Les Muguets in the form of a needleminder.

Here is the second pocket…what do you think? I like the lighter color fabric better.

Well…I have been doing a bit of embroidery, some cross-stitch, and am back to working on my son’s wedding quilt (he’s only been married for 2-1/2 years already!). Very much enjoying my part-time work schedule. And now that the weather’s nice…it’s time to be in the garden again. Yes!!!

Happy Les Muguets Day, Amities, Averyclaire
