Today I want to share with you a very special gift that I received from Paula at the retreat last weekend. (Paula is in the process of getting a blog going so when it is up and running I will let you know!) At any rate, in the past year, I have loaned Paula two of my out of print charts that she very badly wanted to stitch. As a thank you, she brought me one of these project keepers that her local EGA guild made. Have you seen one of these before?
When storing and/or transporting your stitching projects, you can roll them up in the project keeper and they will be protected from getting dirty and wrinkled. (You might be wondering about "I Sigh" - the over one is coming along...slowly.)
Here's a picture of it all rolled up:
A few more stash goodies and then I have to run...here are some of the other projects I purchased while on the road last week:
Top left: FallBrook House Needleplay "Not All" (I'm not necessarily a Halloween gal, but I loved the verse "Not all witches live in Salem."
Middle:With Thy Needle and Thread "Strawberry Hill Sampler" - my box is ready to go!
Top right: C Street Samplerworks "Need Has Nothing To Do With It" - no commentary needed with this one!
Bottom left: The Scarlett House "Jingle All the Way" - looking forward to stitching this one!
Bottom right: Chessie and Me "Mighty Oak Sampler" - have always wanted it and it was on sale!
That's all I've got for you today. It's going to be hot here, just like most other parts of the U.S. Our sky is very hazy looking, the news said that some of the smoke from the Colorado fires would be drifting our way. Prayers go out to the people of Colorado; what a horrible disaster.
