A Couch Caddy

My dear friend LIZ has started an 11 months “SewingRoom SewAlong” to motivate her quilt group and blogging friends to make all the sewing related items, we have on our want-to-do-lists but hardly ever get around to do. For each month there is a different theme.
I probably won’t manage to do all eleven items, but I sewed along in January and made the couch caddy.

 For the pincushion I used one of my favorite sewing graphics from
THE GRAPHICS FAIRY. Thank you, Karen!

Since I haven’t gotten around to post earlier this month, I’m really late with showing you a lovely gift that had arrived just after my last post. My dear friend Carole over at MAYNARD GREENHOUSE had surprised me with these gorgeous and so beautifully wrapped glass glitter ornaments from her shop. She had given them a personal touch by adding Christmas sentiments and watch parts. I LOVE them very much. Thank you, Carole!

Have a great weekend! I’ll be back next week with some more creations.
