This week's SBQ was suggested by Terri and is:
What items do you consider essential to your needlework that you keep
in your stitching bag?
Stitching tin, actually.
Currently there's only one project being worked on, so the essentials are fairly few, but on further thought, it would remain pretty much the same with the exception of threads needed for the project. But for now - I've only worked on the red and white sampler, so that means there's only one color thread. Easy.
So, as for the supplies. Well, to begin with two needles. My favorite very, very fine gold needles that have been with me for what, 4 years now, and show no signs of wear. Then, two long, fine pins. These are to help me count on the linen or to use as reference points for placing the next motif. A super small, extremly sharp little scissor, for obvious reasons. A mother-of-pearl thread winder with my red thread wound around it. This is all in my sewing tin, one that used to contain little candies, tucked into a quilted envelope that contains my linen, ring, and current motif, always ready to go!
