Borders and Promises

I am caught up with Borders and Promises. I really am loving working on this BOM. It is too warm to sit with a quilt in my lap quilting, so I have been doing embroidery when I have time to do some handwork. This has been a very busy spring. Not so much right now, though. We need rain bad. So, since it is so dry, don't need to mow and no gardening. Not even the weeds are growing. Of course the chicks, ducks, and rabbits keep me busy, but that is just a couple of times a day.

Anyway, back to Borders and Promises....I have already shared blocks one and two with you. Here is block three...
Block four....
I just finished block five yesterday. I have had the embroidery done for a while, but needed to sew the sashing on it.  Here it is.....
I think these are going to make a very pretty small quilt.

I also did some sewing yesterday. My poor sewing machine thought I had abandoned it. LOL I was supposed to be repairing a rip in Kevin's shirt, thanks to Sassy, but never did get around to that. I made Kevin a bag to carry his headphones in. Then I decided I needed a case for my Sony MP3 player that actually fit. I made a case for my first player. Then when I bought this one, it was too long to fit into the case. I gave the old player and case to Kevin. I finally got around to making a new case for mine. I just used a few scraps. Here is the front of it.....
I left an opening in the bottom left corner for the headphones to plug into the player. Here is the back of it, hooked onto the arm strap....
Here it is opened up. It fits perfectly and works great when I go on a walk.
I love it when I can create something that we need that would cost at least $20 to buy.  Kevin loved his bag for his headphones so much that he asked me to make him another bag to keep all his recharging cords in. Let's see he has a laptop, Sony MP3 player, Zune, Kindle, Pad, and Palm. So yes, he has a lot of cords to try to keep track of. LOL He is the King of electronic gadgets. LOL
I hope you all have a good day. It is nice here today, only in the 70's. Supposed to be a good chance of rain tonight and tomorrow. I am praying we get it. Thanks for visiting. Please come again.

The blocks are so pretty Winona! I like your MP3 player bag. I need to whip up one for my Ipod, I'm always sticking it down inside my bra lol!

love you, Teresa

GREAT idea for the MP3! I need one too so I have a place for my phone when I walk! I plug my headphones into my phone and use the MP3 on there.
Your blocks are turning out beautiful. At least you are getting something done. I haven't touched a needle in over a month! That HAS to change!

I don't know how I missed this post, Winona, but it seems I'm missing a lot these days... *haha*

I love your BOM project~ very cute and I would imagine it would be perfect for rainy days. And I love the MP3 case!
By the way~ how do you like the Sony? It is easy to use?
I'm thinking of getting a new MP3 player~ I gave my old one to James to keep in his truck and I really miss having one when I'm cleaning the house. (I dance around to disco while I vacuum.. not a pretty sight. hehe)

I love your mp3 holder. I will need to make one for me once the weather is warm enough to not need a coat to go out walking. I usually go around with it in my lower pocket, but for the pedometer I'm using, the thing counts steps way more accurately up higher. Great inspiration.
