I don't usually use a 'needle minder'...
I have not found one that is actually
 'strong' enough to securely hold my needle. 
But I couldn't resist this one with the
owl and a 'fingernail' moon.

  3. What a lovely piece of linen. It reminds me of a fabric I used in reverse for an appliqué piece I designed of a basket of tulips. I love fabric with words.

  7. BEautiful stitchery, Rose! I really like the linen from Primitive Hare, but do you actually stitch on it and if so, what would you stitch? It's very unique, but very lovely!

  10. What incredible linen. I haven't seen that one. I was wondering how you were doing. I have worked on mine off and on. I am working on another UFO that I found. I hope to get back to mine soon. I love seeing your progress. Have a great new week.

  11. Oh My!! The threads selected for "His Eye Is on the Sparrow are absolutely beautiful. The finished photo does not show how colorful. Been wanting to stitch this, but wondered how to fit it in. Wish I knew about your SAL when it started, since that is really helpful for large projects. thanks for the pics; it is beautiful
