Prior to a few days ago, this is where I kept my needles. And some of you thought I have everything organized. Think again, my pretties.
This little paper needle case/enclosure came from my mother's sewing basket years and years ago. It once held new needles. Years back it started falling apart, but I just kept it going by using a paper clip to hold it all together. I became lazy, not even removing leftover string after each use and the whole thing became a hot mess.
I was working on Miriam's quilt recently and had finally had it. I thought I remembered my blogger friend, Margo, making a sweet little needle case that looked like an envelope. I checked her Etsy shop, Thrift at Home and didn't see it. So, I messaged her and she reminded me that it was a blog post of hers where she planted this needle case idea in my head.
I asked her if she felt like making another and she agreed! Margo is a dear through and through. I asked her to add some needle "pages" so I would have more room to store my collection and again she sweetly obliged.
Let me show you how happy my needles are today...
Look at them sleeping so nicely, all lined up, just waiting to help me out.
Thank you, dear Margo. The case is beautiful. Now when I open my sewing-tackle box, I can't help but smile.
