Sunny sewing

It has been snowing all day. And I have been sewing all day. I made another block for my scrappy quilt. I decided on using all my warm and sunny looking golds and yellows on this cold, blustery day. I was surfing around Pinterest and found out how to make these cute little holders for double-pointed needles. I made them to go with the gift I made for my Knitty Sister for Christmas. As a joke, I expanded on that concept and made drum stick holders for my nephew, Matthew. He is the drummer in a rock band in Toronto called Gladheart. He will get a kick out of these.
I found the idea and tutorial here
 Hope you are having a quilty day too.

I was sewing today too! I love snow days-cute holders and I like the yellow block as well. I'm always short on yellow stash-must stock up I guess.

Perfect combination! Snowy day/bright, sunny colors! You are so clever. Your nephew will get a charge out of his new drumstick holders. He'll be the envy of the band! You just may have started something!!

I was sewing today when it was too hot to go outside - it was a bit like your lovely scrappy block here for us! The needle and drumstick holders are a fun gift!
