June 1st finish - a small project

I was fortunate to win a Rainy Days pattern through one of the quilting magazine competitions several years ago, and thought I'd start with the chair caddy.  Got as far as the 2 bright pieced pockets, then found the instructions and my brain didn't match, and also got sidetracked by other, easier to follow projects - nothing new there.


When Dawn and Wendy tempted us this month, I searched the PhD cupboard, found this and several other small projects I thought I could have a go at now I've had a bit more experience, and a long break from those items.  This one, I modified the instructions to suit me, and now DH has a chance to find the TV remote and his reading glasses [if he remembers to use the bright red/orange caddy on his chair arm].






This is my 2nd finish for 2012, and I'm feeling very motivated.
Happy sewing, everyone
