Arm Chair Caddy

I finished my Arm Chair Caddy. Yeaaaaa I joined up with Liz at  http://liz-moments.blogspot.com/  and her Sew Along. Each month will be a item you would use  for sewing or in your sewing room.  The first item for the year was a sewing caddy you would take into the living room  to do handsewing.
I usually just stick the pins in the arm of the sofa and Tim always gives me that look . (  He says you know you are going to miss one  and he will be the one that fines it  in not a good way either)  Now I have a caddy I can stick my pins in. I made the pincushion larger because I do use ALOT of pins when I sew. Maybe its because I am left handed I am not sure   but I do use alot.  I used this pattern called Hugs and Kisses.  I did change it alittle bit.    http://www.hugsnkisses.typepad.com/hugsfromhelen/2008/08/armchair-caddy.html


knowing me I had to add alittle bit of crocheting  so I made this lil daisy to match the fabric..
and a rose.
Amy  my middle daughter joined up too and yesterday she finished her project. I am so proud of her . She quilts  but says she can't sew, follow  sewing directions . Well she proved herself wrong  look at her caddy.


Yeaaaaa Amy !!!!!!!  all by yourself.

Thank you Mommy for the lesson! :) I'm not sure that I will ever be as good a sewer as you - but I intend to practice! I had so much fun yesterday with you here while I was sewing this! You're the best :) I love you so much!

hello Susan,
Thank you for your nice comment, I also find it difficult to understand English, but I'm translating with Google Translate, the text is sometimes quite funny ...
Your Caddy looks very nice, the fabric choices, I find it very successful, just like the Caddy from your daughter
greetings from Germany
