I'm shocked to realise that my Blog so far features none of my embroidery, either hand or machine. This reflects that the only use my machine has had recently is to mend clothes, and my handworking has all been woolly. I am mulling over various projects, most of which are also woolly, but this does not mean I don't want to stitch: I do. I recently saw this needlecase on Ebay and decided it belonged with me:-
This was partly because I had mislaid my needlecase, but much more, I think, to do with the label it has inside:
I like the idea that I will be using these previously loved needles to create some art needlework. I have actually used one to graft the toes of my socks and to help warp up my loom, even though my "proper" needlecase has, of course, since come to light once more. However, I think I owe it to them (and myself) to create something more worthy of them.
