Blame this on Marjorie ...
Yes, yes, yes -- it is all HER fault. Marjorie (Moonsilk Stitches Blog) has a Giveaway on her blog. A Judy Whitman pattern, linen banding, button, the whole project ready to send to some lucky stitcher.
... and, it looked so familiar to me, like I already had that pattern ... or something like it -- and I just HAD to find it ...
Treasured Tools Sewing Case (Kit)
designs c. 2001 by Linda Stolz dba Erica Michaels
I really must stitch more -- this is the motif on the back
And, I know exactly why I put it aside -- the petite size beads didn't show up & I was thinking to try using the regular size Mill Hill beads.
I bought it when it first came out -- mainly because I liked the brass key charms & the idea that our scissors, needles, etc were "treasured tools".
Thx for the get-well wishes, e-mails -- I think I'm turning the corner. Feel more energetic tonight.
Don't forget to swing by marjorie's blog for a chance to win her prize. I think she is accepting comments until the end of February.

I think I made a big mistake. My boyz wanted to buy an i-pod for me. (as a gift) I told them, "no, save your money".
But, now, I'm seriously thinking to get one. I really love music (all kinds) and like the way you can just download certain songs without listening to (or fast forwarding thru) songs on CDs that are kinda boring.
I'm such a fossil, I sill enjoy listening to the older pop-rock stuff from the 70s -- remember my first Robin Trower concert like it was last week. I realize I'm showing my age now! My i-pod mix would confuse anybody who picked it up ... classical (esp Beethoven), new age, old guitar rock, fav songs from cassettes & CDs.
