As I continue to fill part of the days stitching, I'm finding all sorts of "necessities" required to be considered a true needle artisan. I don't normally use a hoop, however find it useful when stitching one over one.
An old needle case found at an estate sale is a fond reminder of a day spent with a friend.
This wool piece was made to keep on hand an extra pair of scissors...or two. How many scissors does one person need?!
An old bamboo chop stick, difficult to find today, is useful when stuffing any small project.
And one cannot have too many pin cushions! Notice the "ring" on the linen? Remember to remove hoops when not stitching. Can there be too many "necessities"?
