So this has been a rough week. I just could not do a large project. But its my goal to do each challenge. So another Saturday /Sew day happened!
So this is my basket of Denyse Schmidt scraps. Many of these came from my friend Lee of May Chappell. In the bag were these orphan block pieces. A tiny pieced square on point in a square and some hst.
I also acquired another mini sewing chair. I still haven't decided if I will paint it or not. What color would you want a sewing chair painted? Here is the new one sitting next to the one I have already painted. It has some gross cushions, old poly threads on the holders(the kitten has since thoughtfully carried around the house), and cuticle scissors in the drawer(yuck).
The one I already painted sits next to my sewing machine and holds my tools and bobbins. Even holds my phone!
So here is what I did with the orphan blocks.
I turned the little pieced square block into a walnut shell filled pincushion for the seat cushion. Then I use the HST units to make a little quilt top.
I did not put batting in the quilt but pillow turned it and then quilted it. And here is the sewing chair newly cleaned and dressed out. Did you see the cute little drawer?
I added a little pieced hst block to line the drawer where I stored some sewing machine feet. You can see the spools and bobbins, scissors and seam ripper that store neatly within reach when sewing.
As you can see it can also hold you phone! Sofia had to get in on the picture action!
