After finishing the fabric journal, I officially closed down the sewing room.
Then, today, I got a delivery that had me running to my sewing room.
A few days ago, I read Mary’s post about using pinking shears to make pinwheels.
Mary posted Jayne’s blog, Twiggy and Opal, where Jayne has a tutorial on the pinwheels.
My old pinking sheers never really worked.
They were heavy and dull.
I asked Mary for some information about pinking shears.
Mary told me about Havel scissors.
Santa must have known I needed pinking shears!
He had Amazon deliver my new pinking shears this morning, and I just had to try them out.
Thank you, Mary. These pinwheels make cute ornaments and gift wrap decorations.
I just sent the tutorial to my daughter-in-law.
She thought it would be a good activity for her nieces.
I made the three inch square pinwheels. I have some more ready to cut and sew.
It will be fun afternoon.
The other day, I went to Michael’s to see if I could find a cute package/bag for my granddaughter’s Christmas Eve present. I found a cute Christmas suitcase box that was perfect for giving a gift of clothes and toys. All Christmas storage boxes were 60% off.
The price was right, so I also bought one for myself!
I have stored my Christmas fabric in this suitcase.
