    Wonderful, Abd! You always come up with terrific ideas. I love the beading for your closures.

    Can you explain the thread spool? It's a little hard to tell what is going on with the photo. Thanks for your inspirations.

    The thread holder is just a sewn strap of fabric with a knot in the bottom for the thread to stay on, you could use ribbon if it is stiff enougn to go through the spool.
    Just passing through!

    Those are soooooo cute! I'm afraid the one I'm doing is going to turn out awfully boring, compared to all the cute ones posted!

    Very cute, I love the doggy case! I don't know what I am going to make for my SP yet. Waiting to see preferences.

    Any idea that involves fabric shopping and possible dark chocolate, is a sure winner!

    I had a few new ideas, just as I was falling asleep, last night. Really "FANTASTIC!" ideas! Ever noticed how one's ideas seem so much more brilliant, when one is half-asleep? Now that it's morning . . . well, I'm not so sure.

    Oh, you got it bad Nessie! I have a little tablet in the drawer next to my side of the bed just so I can write down all of the things I want to remember next morning, in case I wake up "thinking" of all that needs to be done. I can rearrange all of my furniture, etc. and leap tall buildings in that half asleep state.

    I did the same last night. I was more than half asleep, and got a great idea for a project. Hope I manage to keep it stored.

    I do need to keep a note pad and pencil, next to my bedside (for "must do" and "needed" items). However, I'm not sure it'd be possible to describe some of my crazed ideas. I do kinda remember one of last night's brilliant ideas . . . and it involved stitching and turning a part of the needle case, in a rather impossible way. Made sense, last night, though.

    I can just see rushing to cut some fabric, then afterwards thinking, "What the heck have I done?????"

    Some of your best ideas come when you are half asleep. It is a good idea to have a notebook to write them down (wish I did that) because sometimes you will not remember your brilliance when fully awake!

    I am hoping to go to my friend's house now that she is back from Louisiana so she can help me with the needlecase pattern I received from one of my swap partners last year. She may be tired, but I know she won't say no to sewing! lol

    I've just about finished mine . . . but kept coming across parts, which I should have done BEFORE the parts I just did. . . and parts I should've done just a bit differently. That's the problem with making one's own pattern, I guess. If I have time, I may do a second one, to get it right. I did go back and do the missed steps but they'd look better, done in the proper order. At least the second one should go faster, since I (kinda) know what I'm doing, now. Will try to get it done, before revealing the finished product.

    happy quilting everyone

    can't wait to get my partner, i ALWAYS have great ideas just b4 falling off to sleep. Most of them involove flying, of course, or the impossibler, but i think alot of quilty things happen then....like all the fancy saghortcuts everyone comes up and those new rulers that pop up all the time just b4 a quilt show , an easier way of doing things ruler. so draw the idea if you can't write it, it may be worth alot to others.
