What is it about opening your mail box and finding a package? I do not know about you but I channel Christmas and birthday rolled into one when I spy a package in the mail. This week I received some Stitchy Mail from my friend Tonya at Tonya's Sewing Room. Tonya has an ETSY shop as well as a Floss Tube channel. She is a southern gal like me and she lives in a rural part of North Carolina. I have ordered several project bags from her as well as needleminders. Project bags are great for keeping cross stitch projects organized and neat and tidy. Now that I am the owner of my very own Singer Sewing Machine, I may be making my own from here on out.
I asked for one for my Halloween project, The Most Wonderful Fright of the Year. She came up with this cute Charlie Brown fabric.
Here is one that could hold any project.
Here are my needle minders.
I mentioned earlier I had purchased a very basic Singer. I wanted to be able to do some home decor projects as well as finishing some of my cross stitch projects. I have not touched a machine in about 20 years so I am hoping it is like riding a bicycle and it will come back to me. If not, I will check You Tube. I took home ec in high school, made most of my own clothes as well as dresses for Amelia when she was a girl so I am not a novice but I am still feeling rather hesitant about taking up this craft again. I will let you know how it goes! Any hints for diving into sewing again will be welcome.
