A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a meeting of stitchers in Saskatoon and enjoyed the customsry exchange of little favours among the attendees. I love these little stitching items and thought I would share them with you. The first item here is a little needlebook from Cochrane Big Hill Needlearts Guild.
This is a clever idea - a thread counter or place holder when you are doing counted thread work. I hadn't seen or heard of these handy little helpers until very recently. I thought - what a genius idea! It's one of those cases where everyone else in the world knows all about something and you discover it late and can't get over what a wonderful idea it was! lol
Sometime it is all about the presentation! This is a handy piece of beeswax is in the shape of a starfish.
I received a couple more including a lovely ATC by Joyce Gill but I think I left that photo on my other computer so I am not sble to shared them.
Isn't it a great custom we sitchers have of gfting each other with little tools and trinkets when we get together? I love making them, giving them and receiving hem and am always on the lookout for new ideas! I would love to hear about any more ideas anyone has.
