In spite of not having much time to stitch lately, I did manage to finish the needlebook from Little House Needlework's "Fresh From the Garden". I decided I liked the stitched pocket on the front of the needlebook instead of inside. Some of the tomato pincushions from my collection are keeping it company. It is large enough to hold many needles on the felt page inside and packets of needles can go in the pocket. You can see my "Red Hots" scissors also peeking out of the pocket.
We have set the date for our annual Midwest Stash Exchange! It will be August 18 from 10-3 Central time. This is a swap meet type of thing for needleworkers. You rent a table for $20.00 (This fee goes completely to Riley Children's Hospital.) and sell, trade or give away your extra "stash". (You keep the money from your sales.) There will be also be music, games for kids, drawings for gift baskets and a whole lot of fun. We hope to raise a lot of money for a very worthwhile cause. Riley Hospital is near and dear to our hearts and I know many other Hoosiers feel the same way.
