What's on my Worktable..

We have had some cool weather in Florida.  I'm not complaining.  It's beautifully sunny and we have been doing our regular walks and finding fun things to do.    Shuffleboard.  Who knew it could be so much fun and competitive.   Bowling with those big balls that you stick your fingers into.   I can only use the lightest balls and I find it breaks my thumbnail.   But the game is fun and the bowling alley is electronic so it records your score for you.   And we have taken up to swimming laps at the indoor pool.  I forgot how much I  just love to swim non-stop for a half an hour...  

And of course I've been sewing in short bits of time when we are indoors.  In the past two weeks I have cut out several wallets, and finished four this week.     These will be part of a bunch that I send to my sister in Nova Scotia.  

Today I went to the little sewing group in the community, and one of the girls brought in a couple of books for me to borrow.   I love this book called Sew Gifts.   As soon as I saw it, I thought of my Canada Quilt scraps.    The pencil case on the cover of this book grabbed my eye.  I came home and picked through my scraps.   Ahh, it's such a cute design.    I'll show you when I'm done.

Those are beautiful wallets. You've probably said so in the past, but is that your own pattern, and is it for sale?
