I received a few new gadgets in the mail yesterday.
First, a fabric ort container, for putting those bits of thread in when you get to the end and can't do one more stitch. I love that this will fold up and fit in my pencil case, and it will sit very easily on the arm of a sofa/chair or on a desk. This was only $6 on Etsy.
Next, two more magnets. I just loved the dress and shoe set. The bead buddy is my favorite, however! This item is magnificent! You place it on your fabric and just bead away! It has sticky stuff in the bottom just like a Tacky Bob, so it will hold the beads securely. And I turned my stretcher bars over with this attached and NO beads came out!!! And it is very lightweight, so my fabric does not feel weighed down. It comes with a plastic lid that just snaps on.
I have been continuing to work steadily on Faerie Summer Love. Making great progress!! I am looking forward to finishing up the bottom so I can move to the top of the piece.
Until next time...
