 I've been working on this and that this past week.  I've been trying to get the 2 quilts done that are waiting for binding.  Cut my binding for the Salt and Sand...and my Orange quilt.

Started the binding on Salt and Sand last night.

I also worked on my Band Sampler this past week.  I've got June done and now need to start on July.  This is a personal journal Band Sampler.

While I was tying my 2 quilts...I needed a needle puller and couldn't find any.  So I went hunting on line....didn't find any there either.  So I improvised.  I found some jar lid grippers at I ordered some of those.  Got them in the mail, and cut a red one down to size for a needle puller.  They work great!!

  1. Very creative sampler! Such a great idea!
    And another great idea to make needle pulls from the jar gripper!

    1. I use balloons as needle pullers (9" size).. they last forever and are very cheap.

  2. Aren’t you clever to think of jar gripper thingies for needle pulls!

  3. That is so smart and great improvising! Love the binding for Salt and Sand.

  4. Great idea!!! Love your Salt and Sand quilt!

  5. Clever idea to use jar lid grippers ;) Your personal journal Band Sampler is looking good.
    Thank you for linking up!

  6. You've been moving along on your projects. Sorry to have been AWOL last week, sometimes life just happens.
