Guild Sewing Day

Yesterday one of my guilds had a sewing day. We worked on whatever we wanted and it was a great time. Unfortunately, I didn't get a lot of photos.....I was too busy making pineapple blocks. The fellowship hall we were sewing in is a wonderful facility with a great kitchen area. There are even outlets in the floor.

I consider myself a pretty organized person and working in a disorganized or cluttered space irritates me. So, while I was making these pineapple blocks, I would dump out the brown or pink or cream strips and keep them on my table until I was ready for the next color. That meant that they were in and out of the bags many times.

I decided to stick a safety pin through a bunch of them and hang them on a hanger. This worked like a charm. I would just reach up and clip one off when I needed it.
