WORKING OUTSIDE ON THE LANAI
I'm back working outside today, but without Jack, the Ripper, this time! Today I stamped spool blocks, using my Cindy Blackberg stamp, and now I'm outside cutting them out. I haven't cut out templates using scissors since rotary cutters came out. How long ago is that? 20 years? 30 years? I feel like a pioneer woman with my sewing basket, sitting outside, cutting my pieces with scissors. It's very relaxing and feels like getting back to our roots.
Here's a peak inside the basket. It is perfect for klosje work! It has 4 compartments. One for each part of the spool block and one for tools. This is one of those Longaberger Baskets that I 'just had to have' years ago, and never found the perfect use for. Now I know why I had to have it, LOL!
My dogs keep wandering by and are in the picture. They are practicing their 'catching flying insects mid-air' skills today. I don't think they're getting many and have resorted to sniffing the ground.
