I have this small, round side table that I decided needs a round, quilted table topper for the fall. I decorated the other day for fall/Halloween and it looks a little barren in that spot. So I found a great stitchery at The Floss Box (thanks to Amanda H. for the link) and have started stitching when I have a few minutes. I figure this will be the center and I’ll scrappy piece around the sides to make it the right diameter. I’m looking forward to completing this one and sharing it. I love having a vision in my head of something and seeing it through.
When I was gathering the thread colors I wanted to use onto a ring, I realized I wanted to have a few needles to hold multiple threads, rather than constantly changing thread when I still had usable amounts left on the needle. Which of course led to me needing a needle “card” to hold them all. So I grabbed a piece of fall fabric, some batting and some wool felt and cut them all out into circles. Then I stitched them together and used pinking shears around the edge. Finally, I put a small grommet on there so it could fit on my ring and always be with the threads. It’s proved very useful, and quite cute, too! And of course I have it all stashed in my Hoop Travel Bag that I made from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery pattern.
