Doggie Bow Ties

Well, the quilt show is coming soon and  I was trying to think of things to make and ways to help out. What a challenge!  I already volunteered myself into making crocheted jewelry the day of the sale which means I can’t volunteer helping at the quilt guild table. I made a few things, button bracelets, the thimble holder, and the needle book,  but I feel like I should do more (what is up with me?). Well, that I-need-to-do-more feeling led to a clean up of my sewing room….don’t get crazy, a little part of the sewing room. I don’t have time for an overhaul. What I found was doggie bow ties that I made and planned to sell…and never did. Yeah, yeah, I know. The best laid plans and all that.

Here’s a picture of one of the ties:

There’s something about a bow tie. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s all the old movies I watched with the oh-so-handsome, debonair leading man wearing a bow tie.  The whole package. Sigh.

So, I brought in a bag of the ties….not a big bag, about 10 ties, and they were a bit hit. The members loved them. I even have a stuffed Scooby Do to model them. He looks pretty dapper with a tie on, don’t you think?  I do.

If you make it to the show….The Trenton Quilt Show in Trenton, Florida, March 18….stop by the Spring House Quilter’s table and you can see the bow ties in person. I’ll be in the Ice House (where the stitching magic happens) or in the courtyard crocheting away. Stop and visit. I look forward to meeting everyone.

Well, back to listing wonderful patterns in the GoofingOff Sewing shop. Oh, I forgot to tell you. I am listing lots of patterns from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s in the shop. Binge  listing. Quite a few children’s patterns in all sizes. Take a peak when you have a chance.
