Some new Sewing Kits

I have 2 new sewing books to share with you! Above is my Chickadee book. I bought this kit last summer when I was out at my mom's house. But I wanted a different wool for the main part of the kit so I had to wait until I found just the right piece!

And the inside!

Then this gorgeous baby was made by my friend for me for xmas! It is a Sue Spargo pattern.

Don't you just love how it shuts by winding the tail around the button! It makes it so easy to close and open! I love this idea!

Inside is a wonderful new pair of stork scissors Lynn gave me with a beauiful fob! In the very center of the roll is a pincushion. Hard to see in the picture, but it is a big pincusion.

She also gave me a new marking pencil and cosmos floss! I"ve been wanting to try this. I hear it is really wonderful, but I haven't been able to find any since I've heard about it. Can't wait to give it a try!

I made some little needle cases as my Christmas gifts to my bee group this year. I have to admit I thought mine were cute, but now that I see these I like yours better. Especially the Chickadee one!!! I absolutely love that one!! :0)
