The Needle Index & Isn't She Lovely??

This is the gift I received from my cousin, she asked me what I got for Christmas that was stitching related, I said nothing and this arrived in the mail a few days later. It is a wonderful place to keep needles! Now all my needles will be organized. There are pictures of all the different kinds of needles, what they are used for, wool to keep the needles in and a chart with the types of threads that you would stitch with each needle.

Saturday my friend came over and we exchanged Christmas gifts. And I must say "Mine is wonderful!" Isn't she lovely?

I have looked at her every time I went to Threadneedle Street and said "I love her" and now she is mine to stitch. I am going to have so much fun with her, just need to finish her before Halloween.

After we opened presents we went to Threadneedle Street and I bought the fibers I didn't have to stitch my new project. A little glow in the dark thread here and there and a wort of two will make her wonderful. Of course I may change my mind on a few of the fibers when I get started, but not the glow in the dark.

I love your 'Green Haired Witch' and please take pictures as you are stitching her. I haven't stitched on canvas in a lot of years but think it might be fun again. Let me know how you go. Lots of Love Patti xxx
