First off, I went up to my LNS...Needle Orts.....yesterday and she had in this very cute set of minature accessories. There's a magnet for holding your needle in place on your fabric, a 2 inch ruler, a hornbook and a thread holder. All but the magnet have claw hooks on them so you can attach them to anything you like. Well mine I have attached to a larger claw and then attached them to my scissors. Aren't they the cutest???
I also finished the Sweetheart Tree Mini Quaker Pincushion I was working on. I stitched it on a natural/red Graziano Linen using a beautiful silk fiber. I also attached some buttons to the upper right hand corner just for decoration. If you are interested in this, check out my store.
I read about this on another blog and I thought I'd see what the interest is here. The Sweetheart Tree design you see above would be mailed by me to someone along with a skein of floss or silk. The person who is chosen to receive this, must have a blog and also must drop whatever she is stitching at the moment in order to stitch this design in a timely manner. She would then put it on her blog and ask for someone to accept the pattern and a skein of floss from her. It's kind of like a round robin and the object is to see how many people we can get to stitch this design. Let me know if anyone is interested in this because I think it would be fun to see what someone else could come up with.
Blessings as always,
