I let myself get behind on my Designer Mystery BOM series.  Not too far behind.....only two blocks.  I'm now back on target and waiting for November's block to arrive in a few weeks.  I thought this was going to be a basket quilt, since the first three blocks were baskets...... but..... obviously..... these are not baskets. 

I really love this next star block!

I found a little treasure on Ebay last week..... a vintage sewing kit nestled inside a large, plastic spool of thread. 

It separates into three parts......

The lid.....

The top section..... which has a scissor (this goes through to the bottom layer) , a needle packet--only one needle remains, a button holder with 4 buttons, and a rolled up paper tape measure.  There are two empty slots and I don't know what they would have held.

And the bottom layer...... this holds one small spool of thread and a plastic thimble.  Two other pegs would hold more tiny spools of thread.

 What a cute little treasure!
Now on to the Sew Lux BOM series.....I'm 4 blocks behind!


  1. I'm behind on the Mystery BOM too, as in ...I haven't started it yet. I still have 2 to do from last years..

  2. Beautiful blocks and that little spool case is too cute!

  3. Your star blocks are pretty. I'm not on ebay that much. You DID find a treasure. Very sweet!
