How much do we love these
vintage train cases...
I have just the perfect use for them...
I store my hand piecing projects in them...
They travel along with me wherever I go...
Everything I need
is tucked away in this train case...
This case stores my mini dresden plate project.
I am paper piecing these.
I sew a lot while traveling...
I always wear a wrist pincushion and
scissors on a lanyard hooked to my shirt.
Yes, another vintage train case:
The Samsonite brand are some of my favorites!
How yummy is this 1970's avacado green!
The trays inside these train cases help keep all
my hand piecing notions organized
There is also room under the tray
for my project storage.
This is an apple core quilt top
I am currently piecing.
Because these train cases travel everywhere I go,
I get lots of hand piecing done along the way.
Again, each case has a wrist pincushion
and clip-on scissors.
This is my newest train case...
a gift from the Cowboy:
How beautiful is this soft yellow case...
Just looking inside.....makes me happy!
I am using paper pieces
to create a hexagon quilt top.
Check out the size of these HUGE hexagons!
To baste these big hexagons...
I baste them with washable glue......works great!
I am using Marcia Derse fabrics
for this hexy quilt...
Hand Stitching on back side of quilt top...
Believe it or not...
I have only been working on this for a month.
I traveled a lot in November!
At this point, it is 6 feet square...
I think I will add a final border treatment.
As always, each train case has a
wrist pincushion and scissor leash.
We have several pick up trucks, so each one is
equipped with a train case, so no matter which
vehicle we take to town...
I am ready to do some hand stitching!
