It was on the bottom of a large stack of quilts to be finished . What was left of it was the middle of the folded quilt so I washed the remains and cut it into blocks. Not caring if I got a part or just bits of them. Then when we were done with the house I had 2 windows in my sewing room so I made it all into valances for the windows. Now they are hanging over my vertical blinds I got for $5.00 still in the box at a yard sale. It's so nice to be able to open and close them. It gives me so much more light in this old building. Spike love them . He can sit on the back of the sofa and look out to see mail St. There is lots of traffic and things going by.

I had a yard of this fabric. Now I have very little left. Maybe some coasters of my end table. Or a candle mat?? this was a simple thing to make. Quilting the fabric and binding took the longest. I just love all the bright colors in this fabric.
I have a place for my quilting gloves (I got them in the gardening department for $3.00)
seam ripper, and scissors. And what ever I want at hand.

I have 2 remotes, phone and my kindle reader and kindle fire. They were always falling of the table or down in the chair. Or just in a heap on the table. I got going and made a caddy to hold them all. The kindles are in the bottom 2 . I left a opening for my glasses. That's all I did today a lazy Sunday. I even got a little nap in this afternoon.

I have plans to make me a chair caddy for all my remotes. Also a sewing machine pad with pockets to hold scissors and things after the 2 bindings.
I am sure Jennie will come up with more hot pads. We are planning to us them at the Fall craft show and Christmas gifts.
