|Whimsy and Grace Needlecase|
Oh well, it's done now and I plan to use it to store my chenille and beading needles to keep them separate from the regular ones. They seem to be more delicate and prone to bending and breaking.
We have our ANG meeting in a few weeks and everyone is going to bring in their "Go To" and "Can't Live Without" tools and gadgets for needlepoint. As you can imagine I am struggling with this since I have all kinds of gadgets spread out around me when I stitch. Plus, in my tool stash I have 3 kinds of laying tools, probably 5 kinds of scissors, lights, magnifiers, 2 table stands, 1 floor stand, several kinds of needle threaders, tweezers for loose threads and pullers for threads that are jammed in the back of the canvas. I have punch needles and felting needles and it goes on and on....
The Wall Street Journal used to have a column about what's in the CEO's briefcase which I always thought was a lot of fun- everyone had some unique personal item beyond the usual keys and phone. (Maybe no phones - this was a long time ago- even before the internet when people actually read the paper.) Here's a picture of my tool kit that I carry EVERYWHERE.
