Bernie is feeling a little abused never has she been asked to sew like this.
Sean had put a hole in his wet suit knee and after much wrestling the knee is patched.

They are the cutest pencil rolls I've ever seen. Seriously.

How does one get a hole in a wet suit unless one has been wrestling sharks. I thought those things were indestructable. No wonder Bernie was offended!

I do love your pencil rolls. I love when the colours at the back reflect the colours of the pencils, you are clever. Bloom does that too. Good luck at the market.

Love the header shot too.

HELP! :) Hi! I just came across your blog tonight.... I love it! :) I had a question... I love the sturdy looking handled baskets you've sewn. Is that an original pattern? Do you sell it? If it's not original, would you mind sharing where you got the pattern? That could be a BIG help when sorting and putting toys away for my 3 kids-- also a nice tote for grading papers (I'm a teacher, as well). Love your pencil rolls of today's post, too. Will try those this summer! Thanks a million! Robin, welchrobin@hotmail.com

Oh Oh SPOT FABRIC!!!
Where did you come by that? I am a huge Spot fan (I have all his books, my favorite is Spot goes to school!)
Good luck with the market. I am sure those pencil rolls will be popular, they are georgeous.

What a great idea to color code the pencil slots!

I enjoyed seeing all the pictures on the previous post, thanks for sharing.

They look gorgeous and I'm sure will sell like hotcakes. I made two for friend's kids a couple of Christmases ago and I remember how fiddly they were-you are on fire woman! Good luck with all the sewing-hope Bernie doesn't get too hot and bothered:)
