THESE....to enlighten my gloom

The whole of my sewing corner now looks so wrecked and lifeless and dust at every corner .............. So is my life but still I sit and sew.......... sighhhhh!

So made these to lighten up my corner and give some good companions to my little BEAUTY.... a machine mat with few slots to hold some sewing gadgets, mobile tread catcher and a pin cushion..... Did I break the rule for not placing the thread catcher on the right of the mat? ..... Frankly I am comfortable with it being on my left ...... snipped and drop..... that is it.... and it would not takes a lot of space as it is right on my lap.....

Look at my old thread catcher... just placed it hanging in between the drawers but I had it ever since I can remember.....
I made a simple pin cushion plus a metal piece to give some weight. Here I used my hubby's old hinge which I found kept nicely in his tool box. Shoved it in at the bottom and had it sewn after filling up with poly-insert. Quite heavy and will hold it in place.....

The thread catcher is meant for mobilising as I like to carry it around. So I sort of made it attached to buttons underneath the pin cushion or let it stay free standing by my side waiting to be filled up with threads, small pieces of rabbit's ears, or sometimes my sweet wrappers ........ :D

Dah lama nak buat nih. All this while, my thread catcher is the floor... habis sepah. once in a while, sume sewing activities kena stop n clear the room. This is much more practical.
