Pictures as promised! Here is my work from the weekend. Hey, this'll be the first year that I'll have a nice collection of Fall designs on my walls!
If I can finish this before the upcoming weekend, I'll be ecstatic.
Do you see the needle minder in the second picture? I've been collecting needle minders for the past couple of years, and this summer I bought that one at The Stitching Post in Baltimore. It's by Puffin and Co., and I have to tell you, it uses the strongest magnet I've ever had. It's certainly not going anywhere. But moving it around can be dangerous to your tender fingers. These little magnets are so determined to be attached to each other that if your fingers get in their way they'll give them a hearty pinch. And my scissors have become stuck to it several times. They're little demons!
Seriously, if you use these, make sure that you don't store anything near them that could be damaged by a strong magnet, like maybe your digital camera or credit cards. And it wouldn't be a bad idea to stitch far away from your fridge....
