This is a closer view of the pincushion:
and the needlecase:
Yesterday, it rained all day! Instead of being smart and staying inside to stitch (or clean house), I went bargain shopping. I had heard an advertisement that Beauty Brands had all their hairspray on sale for 6.97. It was worth the drive to save that much... and while I was 'up that way' I went to A.C. Moore with a 50% off coupon and bought some linen to practice my new found skills! And just up the road a piece was Hobby Lobby. There is a HL here in town, but they somehow have different stock (and discounted items). I found a few things,
then browsed over to the scrap booking area. That is one thing that I have NOT allowed myself to start, BUT... all the storage containers and such were 50% off. I saw this carrier, "the Paper Studio rolling tote," looked it over, walked away, looked at it again, walked away, then decided I had to have it!
This was the only one they had that I could find. They do have other color schemes, but I like this brown and aqua/teal just fine.
