Scrappy swap - a sneak peek

So, this is the handmade item I made for my partner in the Scrappy Swap.  It is a (gigantic) needle case with a little pocket for embroidery scissors.

It's not perfect - I interfaced the exterior (which I'm not showing until my partner has received it) but not the interior fabric, and I wish I had, to give it a bit more structure.  Never mind, it will fulfil its function of holding needles and scissors (and I easily fitted the fat quarter of scraps I am sending inside it as well).  I will send this off tomorrow.

I decided that this weekend would be less talk, more (sewing) action.  I ended up doing quite a lot of quilting (both straight line and free motion), with the result that a couple of ongoing projects are much closer to completion than they were last week.  Will update when I have photos.

What did you get up to this weekend?  Lots of time at the sewing machine?  Or was the weather too good where you are to be stuck inside?

I sewed this week for the first time in ages. Last night I did a little sewing while the guys watched football, but then spent a few hours cleaning up bedroom/sewing area.

Your needle case is nice, can' wait to see the other side!
