New Necessaires and Notions for 2019!

                                    Happy New Year!
  A new year....a fresh start.....lots of goodies to make! I thought I would make some necessaires again this year since they were so popular in previous years. A hand made little bundle of stitching goodies. Trims, sewing charms, hand dyed buttons, etc.  Maybe I will add a small cross stitch pattern with each one. I will start working on these after all the club shipments go out and show you one around the 15th...or sooner.....and of course I will give one away. I was thinking of doing a different fabric each month and giving one away each month for a while. If all goes well I might do this all of 2019. We will see. I also have a lot of gorgeous cluny lace I want to start dyeing for these projects. Top quality lace I bought from a business that used them in his designs and wanted to sell off his inventory. I bought almost 100 rolls of this lace and I really want to start using it in some kits

These are all hand made by me. I don't know if I will do kits for these....just the hand made ones for now. They make great gifts.
Then I might do other hand made items and kits for you to make at a later date. So much to do in 2019!

I bought a dozen bolts of some beautiful fabrics to start making these little treasures. I will show each necessaire as they are finished. I have a lot of new followers that have not seen them and you are in for a real treat.

I keep saying I am going to take a few days off to do work on my own projects.....but then I start thinking of goodies I want to do for give-aways and then the projects get put on a back burner. I love to do silk ribbon embroidery flowers....petite flowers.....not huge designs. I have boxes of silk ribbons I bought last year and one of these days I will take time for a "play day"! I have wanted to use some of these for a thimble case and I could easily finish that in a day.

So here's to a great start of a new year.....wishing all of you the best for 2019. May you find your heart's desire!
