I made some gadget purchases recently. This beautiful needle case from Down Sunshine Lane. The lid is handmade from clay.
And these Needle Grip-It patches. A godsend when doing needlepoint.
And a metal needle threader. I broke one of those thin wire ones this weekend. In my opinion the thin wire ones are only sufficient for threading a beading needle.
And another set of needle magnets. I have a serious addiction to these. This time it's a beehive and two bees!
And a lesson learned this weekend. Sometimes it takes something being pointed out to me many, many times before I catch on. I will NEVER sell anything stitching related ever again on eBay. There have been so many times that I have put something up for auction and it goes for a mere fraction of what I paid. Now, I realize it is partially my fault for not starting the minimum bid at a higher price, but how is it that whenever I try to bid on something stitching related it skyrockets??? Something I paid $92 for as a kit sold for $12.50. I wanted to cry. But like I said, lesson seriously learned. I would rather donate items to charity or give it to someone.
Until next time...
