{ What a woman NEEDS }

read that title again ~
this isn't a post about what a woman WANTS ...
oh I want alot of things :
new shoes, jewelry, a vacation....
but, necessarily ~
the things I need at the moment are simple...
some linen & thread ~

my favorite little gold needles....

a small wood hoop and sharp little scissors.....

a place to park my floss ~ our little pinwheel thread holder attached to my scissors
...very handy!

I also use a magnetic tablet and magnet strips (not sure what this is called)
...to hold my chart in place while I work

can you tell that I'm working on Hallowe'en already? ha!

the magnetic strips also help me keep track of the row I'm stitching ~

and of course I also put my needle magnet on this tablet  too...
...see? everything in one little space to set on my lap as I work.
 If you'd like to purchase a pair of the little scissors shown, they are in our ETSY shop,
along with the pinwheel thread holders ~
along with a cup of mint tea, my comfy stitching chair,
and the most important commodity of all:
that's all I really need ~
Hoping you all enjoy whatever it is you need today!!!

GREAT idea ... the magnetic board. I have one from my typing days with a stand on it I might give it a try. Love the colors and thread holder too.
Have a Happy 4th with Peace and Blessings to all,

Lovely little stitching supplies. I love the scissors. I agree that what I need is time. Never enough to stitch as much as I would like.
