Snow .......I love it

hi peeps
I know the snow has caused all sorts of caos today. But it meant I was stuck at home (shock horror without any chocolate too).
Anyway I decided it was time i played with my new sewing machine. I have just discovered what a walking foot is. It's brilliant and so I made this;

It is supposed to be a basket by sewing the corners together but I decided I like as it was.
Then my handyman suggested I make it multi functional ( this is why he is called my handyman).
 By pinching 2 corners together with my clever clover sewing peg thingys I made it into this.

An arm chair storage thingy for when I am beading.... I am always loosing scissors, threads etc down the side of the chair. But now I can still use it flat as a table centre piece etc. etc.
Can't wait to have a go at a special project Jo is planning on her blog see here jozart quilts-appeal.
Anyway stay safe in the snow and all I need now is some chocolate :(


  1. That is a super idea and you've made a fab job of it! I am sure that could be marketed!

  2. Nice to see another quilter working hard! Lovely colours too.

  3. No Chocolate! lol What a great idea, so useful, love the rich colours you've chosen. The walking foot is a marvelous invention you will wonder how you ever managed with out it. Happy sewing. Hugs Lynne

  4. Hi Janet, you are a star! Thank you so much for helping me out with LillyBo blog. I was really boggled over it but it's on the way now thanks to you. I tried to get it live tonight but decided to finish and review tomorrow when I've cleared my head.
    love Jo x

  5. Excellent idea to use those throws as backing... so economical and I'm all for that. I'll look out for some for mine. Thanks Janet

    Neat multifunctional quilt pad. If it were in my house it would become a kitty bed.
