I haven’t done much on the workbox recently except prepare fabric for the accessories and embroider this frame on the base. Something like “Workbox made and embroidered in 2018” will be stitched within the frame but I can’t decide whether to stitch upper or lower case letters so I’ll put it aside for now and get started on the accessories.
In the image you can also see my new needle minder. I was lucky enough to be chosen recently to road test it by Marlous, who writes the blog The Stitching Sheep. The needle minder is a sweet little wooden one with an extremely powerful magnet and easily holds my embroidery scissors as well as needles. I believe Marlous will be selling the needle minders later this year but even if you’re not in the market for one, her blog is worth a long browse.
