Summer Sewing


When I saw this organizer on Susan's blog here and here, I knew I had to make one for my sewing room. Now I'm thinking, I need a few more of these "Pocket to Go" organizers....I love it!. The pattern is by Atkinson Designs.
The weekend was very relaxing with a few walks on the beach and a little hand applique. I've had this top prepped for a long time, I made good progress this weekend.

Happy Quilting.

Love the pocket basket!!!! Cute, cute, cute! Thanks for saying pattern name...it's on my list! I love things with pockets and could see this as a sweet gift for many things and occasions!

Carole said...

Oh.... what a lovely organizer. Great for retreats too! That is one sweet looking quilt you are working on! I agree, it is way too hot! A/C does help but the noise bothers me. I guess it's either you don't sleep because of the heat or because of the noise! Ah... small thing, I'll catch up on my sleep later! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

Oh, I love the organizer! I think I have that pattern somewhere and you've inspired me to get it out and maybe even get started on it. Was it difficult?
