More Stash!

Some new stash items arrived in the mail this past week and after wrestling with downloading photos to blogger, I am able to show off a little. This piece is Mimi's Tape Measure by Olde Colonial Designs. I've seen this finished, and it really is so much cuter than the picture shows.

My mother bought this project bag for me and I love it! It's so colorful and it holds everything I need for an afternoon of stitching. The cats on the bag are soooo cute.

I saw these thread holders on someone else's blog, and I had to have some. I actually bought two packs of them. I am trying to organize my stash, and I hope that these will help in the thread department.

Isn't this needle holder darling? I had another one like it a couple of years ago but it broke. I was doing a little shopping a few weeks ago and found this one, it's by the same person who made the original one that I had. This one is so bright and colorful.

I bought a new pair of Dovo scissors and I just had to have a fob to match. The scissors are called Ladybug Scissors and of course the fob has ladybugs on it too. Well I'm off to work on my tea swap and a little treat for my ds. I will write more later.

Hi Amy,
Thanks for dropping by at my blog. The house pattern is a freebie pattern by Little House Needlework and the strawberries pattern is a freebie ( if I'm not mistaken) by Lizzie Kate.
