Love new things....

This is the first of my new things..... a couple of days ago a FB friend posted a link to a website that featured the tutorial to make this thingy.....not sure what to call it... but it works great.  The url  to get the tutorial is:    http://so-sew-easy.com/non-slip-sewing-machine-foot-pedal-pad/    if you are interested in making one.
Here it is showing the pedal resting up against the stopper.  by the way, it works really well. now I have to make another one for my 'go to class" machine.  They work up very quickly...took about 10 minutes from start to finish and I did the stopper by hand....
This is the second one....DD # 2 is moving apartments in Edmonton and did a purging so she wouldn't have to move everything.  She found some odds and ends she thought DH and I might like...wonderful lotions and pins she had collected(DH is the pin collector...we won't discuss how many he has) plus  some neat things...like this little thing...it is called a needle
holder which surprised me since she is not what you would call a sewing person.
Here it is separated...magnetic of course and you attach it wherever you wish and it holds needles like the one I attached to show you what I mean. I have been using it now ever since I got it...to be totally honest, I don't know how I ever did without one...so convenient. especially for this here hand sewer.

At this point in my life, where I am seriously downsizing for a costly move, I just laughed. Really? Pins and a needle keeper? Where's the big stuff like a collection of vinyl records that weigh a ton but are a symbol of your entire life. Seriously though, I wish I had more discipline in my younger years and it wouldn't be so hard now. Lucky you for being the beneficiary.
