After a week's break from stitching I was eager to get on with my appliqued angels and I am happy to introduce you to Tillie the Tea Lady angel. Becky the Bookworm will be ready to make her appearance very soon.

I don't know about you but I get quite grumpy when I can't stitch. Does that mean I have a problem? If you want to see more angels for the  "An Angel's Story " quilt  pop over to Michelle's as she has done many blocks with beautiful needle turn applique. 
While visiting Spotlight last week I came upon something which immediately screamed " I am perfect to store fabric scraps for applique". As you can see, my storage system for separating the different colours was a little over filled and a bit hard for me to get to as they were on top of my shelves.
So, why not make life easier with larger storage that is already colour coded?
I have already found it to be very handy .
I hope you are having some lovely stitching time.
Angel Blessings
