Productivity

This week has been one of those weeks where stuff just. gets. done. It has felt so good after what seems like months of being somewhat off kilter.

One thing I have been meaning to do for a while is make a case for all of my scissors. I have a class this weekend and I wanted to have a way to take my scissors with me and make sure that they were not banging together in a box or a bag.

So, I whipped out a long stashed sewing machine themed fabric, pulled a neat scrap out of my neutrals box (I think this was from a guild swap and might have come from Lindsay? Thanks L!) and used some 1001 Peeps as an accent colour.

The outside looks like a typical roll, except with all the scissors loaded it is sturdy and thick. Inside it has lots of different sized pockets.

I suppose I should say this is for my “sharps” rather than for my scissors. I have my rotary cutter, thread nippers, and seam ripper in there too. The roll fits inside the giant box bag that I made to hold my other class supplies, such as the power foot for my machine, pencils, turning tools, small rulers, etc.

I am really excited for this class, it is one that I have wanted to take forever. Carolyn at Old Trinity has taught her double wedding ring quilt class a few times over the last few years, but I have never been able to fit it into my schedule. But this weekend it is! I am using all kinds of scraps (I have boxes upon boxes of them) and I am either going to use Kona White or Coal as the background. I am leaning towards Coal at the moment, but we shall see.

What are you all up to this weekend? Any classes? Any knitting? Sewing?

PS – I restocked the shop with small box bags yesterday. There are toasters involved!
