Happy Happy Joy Joy

And the gang's all here.  I finished the fifth part of the GPA sewing set on Memorial Day.  If you squint and use your imagination, you can see (clockwise from lower left) the scissors fob, the slipper top, the slipper bottom, the scissors case front and the little weird strip that goes down the center of the mini thread keeper, which fits into the slipper.

Life is good.


  1. I can't wait to see your pieces all put together. Those are going to be just wonderful!! And seeing your Garage Majal just about cracks me up. My FIL buys a house dependent upon the Garage. The last house that my inlaws moved into had two garages because my FIL can't live without his mancave, plus some!

  2. Nice finishes, this will be just gorgeous when you put it together! I bet DH is excited about the man cave.
