My Friday night sewing with friends

Such a lovely night sewing with so many people at FNwF.  I worked on making this art folder, from a tutorial by Tracey at Thimbelina.  I need to sew the binding down, then buy the art items to fill it.  It is a good tutorial, well written.  I changed the size of the pencil pockets so I could use the thicker triangle shaped coloured pencils, so didnt fit in as many pencils as the pattern has.



I will show the completed folder after I buy the supplies and sew the binding.

This morning I looked at the table beside the chair where I sit to do hand sewing.  I have been doing quite a bit of hand sewing lately.  But....

With all those thread catchers around blogland lately,  how come my table looks like this?
Oh that's right - I made some thread catchers also.  


Much better.
