I have been working the past few days on Floral Star by From Nancy's Needle. Really loving her stuff!
I also ordered a few things to make my stitching experience more enjoyable. DH likes to call me Inspector Gadget, and starts humming the theme song when I come in the room with all of my stitching supplies. I wear that title proudly!!
At the retreat in November last year I received this wonderful pencil case and I began keeping all of my supplies for my current project in it. Here you can see it open and closed.
It has gotten a bit crowded as of late and I find myself digging for things repeatedly, so I went online this morning in search of something just a big bigger, and I found this. Ladies, do you remember Caboodles? I had a big one for all of my makeup as a teenager. I especially liked how the ad on Etsy called this "vintage." LOL. My favorite part of this? The double decker shelves! I figure I can put my scissors, highlighter, needle threader, and spare needles on the top and all of my threads on the bottom. I can't wait to receive this!
And while working on counted canvas projects I find myself using a spare needle to hold a spot so I know where to stop at a particular place on the canvas, so off I went in search of canvas pegs, and found these. So pretty!
And I have been using a needle threader since working on counted canvas projects, especially for those fiddly metallic threads. But I kept finding myself misplacing this tiny piece of metal, and then while at Stitch Night a few weeks ago I saw that someone had tied a piece of yarn in the hole in the middle. Eureka! Now I see what that hole is for! So, I tied a piece of scrap Caron Collection Watercolours and I have not lost it since.
Until next time...
