Needle Case

I love conference weekend.  Our family traditionally goes out to the chapel on both Saturday and Sunday to watch conference in the "Cry Room" (aka the Relief Society room) where Maxx can stretch out, color and play a bit without being disruptive to those who want a quiet conference experience.  Molly and I bring a craft project to work on - some people think that's irreverent but honestly I HAVE to keep my hands busy.  I used to take copious notes with marvelous doodles in the margins but since the arrival of Maxx, I have been unable to engage in note taking.  As soon as I have a pen in my hand, he wants to be involved.  Maxx involved = mom fails to process anything beyond her own frustration.




So this conference, I started work on a needle case to match my lovely scissors case.  It has two layers of dyed muslin with buttons and yarn caught between in a sort of faux trapunto.  I'm really liking how it is shaping up so far but I think I've got just a few more hours to go before it's really done . . . .
