Tool of the Trade
Well, opening up my thread holder, it fell apart..so, a little organizing to do. I use Aurifil 50 or Mettler 60, or Masterpiece. Haven't really tried any of the silk I have..
I needle turn, so have the toothpick, the overlay, the circles, the "General's" Charcoal white pencils and very short applique pins (Bohin). I love my little black serrated scissors, and the pointy, pointy Clover scissors, too. There's a sandpaper board and the lap board, as well.
Very hard to do without the Clover Needle threader..
I took the vertical spool holder of my old Bernina and stood it up under my pincushion in the little basket.
My sewing box came from Mont St. Michel... I fell in love with the poster hanging in my 7th grade French class, and got to see it in person when my son spent a year at a French University not far away. The box held cookies before it held my paraphernalia, and now is a nifty reminder of a wonderful trip.
I just finished the 4th leaf of my first block! Time to prep some more pieces.
