Thread the Needle Day

Today (Friday, July 25) was National Thread the Needle Day.  Who knew?  I didn’t yesterday, but I do now.  The internet is a marvelous thing – just full of useless facts you never needed to know!

But that’s beside the point.  The point is how did I celebrate Thread the Needle Day?  With needle and thread, of course!  Imagine that!

I stitched some hexies.  This seems to happen just about every day, although not for long periods.  It’s great for sitting in front of the TV but since I don’t watch much TV this project is taking a looooong time!

I also threaded a beading needle and finished the fringe on this butterfly.  This particular project has been languishing since mid-June.  Today it got finished!

My doll club took a class on making these boxes to display small dolls – or any art/craft/ephemera, really.  Now that my box is finished I need to decide what to display in it.  My finished dolls are all too large.  I guess I will have to make a new one!

I was so busy sewing I missed it!
The sewing was making clothes, so I don't count that as real sewing, and besides, I spent nearly as much time reverse sewing as sewing the right way.

Oh, that's lovely! Love those colours. Pity your dolls are too big, but it could be used to display just about anything that would fit nicely.

I love your display box!
