Here are a few pix of stuff I had on my camera:
These are a few of my eBay bargains. I bought the two Mill Hill kits (love to do these!) from a gal who sells for at least 25% off on eBay. The two Brittercup designs and the sewn things at bottom (candy cane print wallhanging holder and bright green tuck pillow) are all from Barb, whom I met at a stitching retreat last October. She scouts out overstock and old charts at various LNS' and sews the most wonderful things for stitching that I'm her present best customer, LOL! She'll do things at your request, sew something on her site in your choice of color, etc. The best thing that she has going is the hoop and Q-Snap cover that keeps your fabric clean as you work. Her name is Barb, and I highly recommend her services.
I recently ordered a couple of times for conversions of Vikki Clayton's silks for some of my newer charts, which I'll get pix of later. In the process, the cheap side of me took advantage of her irresistible bargains. Her lovely miscellaneous items are dirt cheap, and her sometimes funky colors of silk she's discontinuing are marked down, so I grab them up. I got enough of the upper left portioned and labeled silks to do two La-D-Da Christmas ornies, which I'd never use for Christmas, but for something like a pinkeep or other misc. sewing item, and with a small purchase, this silk was a quarter for one ornament. The funky silk is upper right; bottom shell thread holder hearts are a quarter each. The various colored shell thread winders are 75¢ a piece, and the mini-pink thread winder was a quarter. I'm in love with gadgets.
Here are two more of the newer Prairie Schooler charts I adore, my newest Crochet World magazine, at the top of which is one of the things I ordered from the Online Needlework Show. It's in the box, and it's a kitty scissor fob on right in box and a wonderful new gadget called a thread picker, both of which I ordered in a bright blue by My Big Toe Designs. I love this companies designs and products! Last, on the right side of the mag is a little unusual beading kit (I'm a real beading fan) that I won in Shirley's customer drawing a couple of months ago. I'll be glad when she gets back from her trip. She sells 25% off her listed prices and features 3 designers each month at 40% off. Above all that, leaned against my sewing machine are two sizes of Barb's Q-Snap covers. I have nearly all the sizes she makes and use them every day. They're just wonderful, and they're very reasonably priced. If you order from her, she occasionally throws in simply wonderful freebies that are something new she has made and are experiments. Her sewing is beautiful!
