I used elastic cord to close it and a button. This gives 2 pages for needles and a spot for a ripper, marker and success strips, or even a Hershey bar!
The day was looking like a good one. Then the mailman came. He wasn't too happy with me having to tote 3 large boxes around, but he made my day!
The first box I opened was from my grands in Idaho. Other then hugging your grands who live so far away, getting a box with some photo's of some of your grands is the next best thing! I can't believe so many of my babies are now pre teen or teen. The photo on the left is the baby of them all, already age 6. He tells me he doesn't want to be called Scottie anymore, just Scott.
My friend Kathy from the HGTV group sent me a huge box of strings, lots of red fabric (my favorite color) and some fancy beads. Sweet roses and butterfly's, hearts and shiny silver circles. You know I'm going to jump into the box of strings..my new love!
My friend Norma from California sent me two wonderful books on crazy quilting, some beautiful fabric's and fancy threads.
