it has been a really beautiful summer here in the great northwest, i love our cool sunny weather, perfect for me.
last week i met up with my favorite stitching friends in Bothell,WA. for another tea lunch. we met at a unique shopping area with an outdoor farmers market in progress. we of course visited most of the stores before we took off for our tea. i can't say the sandwiches are getting better but the friendship more than makes up for the bad food. i know someday we will find a great place to have tea!!
Becky of "A Note of Friendship" claim to fame (must check out her website and blog if you haven't yet) had seen a great idea where a fellow stitcher had used an old glass frog (one you use for flowers) as a scissor holder. i have a collection of them at home so needless to say i went home and pulled my glass one out it has to be a little rounded on the top to work well. i added my laying tools and almost any size scissors work. thanks Becky love this idea.
i have made so many changed to the original design and i know that i want it to look the best i can. i will share a finished picture when i am done. stay tuned.
