Gadgets

I love gadgets, especially needlework gadgets.  Here are the newest ones I've acquired.

A needlebook with my initial from Crystal's Creations & Gifts on Etsy.  This needlebook was featured in the newest issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework.  I love their new feature on the newest needlework gadgets.  And at $9 I thought this was a steal!!  One can never have enough needlebooks.


 I have wanted a clear tote forever and recently purchased this one from The Stitchery, including the clear notions bag on top.  I will be using these bags for the first time this weekend at the In Stitches lock-in.  One can never have enough totes either!!


 I also purchased a new pair of traveling scissors.  I love these for their antique look.


And finally I worked a bit on Quaker Moon last night.  Progress!  Oh, boy, I had to laugh as I uploaded this photo.  Once I looked at this piece in a photo I realized the right part of the moon is a candy corn on the inside!  Last night while stitching that part I thought, okay, they are just filling in the moon a bit.  Hahahahahahaha. 


P.S. While at The Stitching Post this morning picking up some much-needed needles and a Q-snap, I ran into the lovely Astrid!

Isn't it funny how we pick up things from the pictures we take? I have also found mistakes this way. The owl and needlebook are adorable and any kind of notion is always great fun.

Congrats on the stash. Gotta love new stuff! :)


I love the way your Quaker Moon is coming together. I didn't like this design when I first saw it, but I do like how yours is coming together. Are you using everything in the kit? Can't wait to see it finished! :)
