Okuda San is new to stitching and didn’t have any little toolie things. We are working to fix that. To get started with a few little toolie things, I made up a simple little needle case, pin keep, and scissor fob to teach. The only thing better than little toolie things are little toolie things that match.
This shows the finished needle case open and the second needle case before it is put together.
The Secret GardenI’ve been reading a lot of books on my iPod – mostly mysteries and classics. One book that I recently finished was one that I loved as a child, The Secret Garden. Here are some photos of my needlework necessary of the same name. This piece was designed by Lauren Sauer, http://www.forgetmenotsinstitches.com/ (the website appears to be out of date).
