Gift -- Kit & Beaded Laying Tool

A wonderful package arrived from Marjorie.
She made a beautiful beaded laying tool (which got cut off in the picture) with a collar stay, beads, and ended with a cute charm
In addition to the laying tool, she was gong thru her stash, found this kit & thought I might like it -- ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? I luv it!

Wow you've been getting such wonderful gifties. I love the adorable squirrel charm laying tool, and the earlier cat scissors and cat fob were adorable too.
