Tool Easel.....


I finally made up my "Tooly Tool Easel" ..... 



I have seen a few made by friends and thought it would be a great carry out to hold the goodies on my sewing days.


I got the pattern HERE.... not expensive when you buy the PDF and it comes straight away.  I do admit to having to think hard in some places... I am a bit instruction reading challenged but we got there....

Isn't this lizard fabric so fun... I was gifted it in a Secret Santa a couple of years ago and delighted to use it for this carry bag...  as you can see I added a few matching plain colours so I could see the pockets easily.


I have started on the blocks for My Small World..... as I said I am instruction reading challenged and these are the second lot I did.... the others were trimmed too small!!! sigh

These blocks are big - 4 1/2".....

These pinwheels are smaller .... 2 1/2"...... I am using smaller pieces from my scrap baskets for this quilt.

I am trying to make a bit more effort on accuracy ... still not getting all the points meeting ... oh well



Handsewing in the evenings with the fire blazing and the TV on has resulted in 4 more Dutch Treat blocks....


I do enjoy the variation in the blocks, some take several evenings, some can be done in one... they are all different.

Righto, Gotto Go......  quilt pinning day ..... and the weekend coming up... hope you have a good one

Tool rack what a great idea looks wonderful. Love your small blocks and DT blocks.

Love your tooly tool thingy! A thingy thing for tools? Whichever, it's so bright and fun with the lizards. And your pinwheels are wonderful in all those colors. Dutch Treat must be getting close to completion as well. Each block is so interesting and different :)

The tool tidy is such a good idea, love the way it keeps them all together in easy reach & visible. Great work Fiona.
I love the sound of your blazing fire... nothing says winter like a warming blaze!

The Tool Easel will be very handy and you won't misplace it ....
Your "Small World " blocks look great using your scrappy fabrics. You'll get better with the tiny blocks as you go.
Oh DT is nearing an end...

I have seen these tool easels before, but of course have not made one.
Love seeing yours all done in fun fabric. I agree that this will be very useful.
