A Stash Enhancement Story

I added to my needlework stash this weekend.

First, I did go to Michael’s this past Friday and bought some 9″ x 12″ pieces of felt in lots of colors, so I can (finally!) finish my guild name tag and have extra felt on hand to complete other small projects like ornaments and swap items.

On Saturday, my husband and I were early for a graduation party in Lemont, IL, so I begged hubby to take me to Inspired Needle, and, somewhat to my surprise, he agreed to drive there!

This was my first time at Inspired Needle, and, boy, was I in for a treat! This store is truly an amazing cross-stitch and needlework shop. I was so overwhelmed.

It was a very good thing for my wallet that we only had a few minutes to spare in the shop, but I did manage to purchase the following charts:

and this wonderful chart from Prairie Schooler:

I also bought a mesh vinyl project bag with a zipper to carry around smaller projects.

So, I am excited about my new charts, and I cannot wait to go back to Inspired Needle because I saw a lot of other things there I just might “need.”
