It’s high time I cataloged here the fabulous stitching gifts my lovely sister, “KtG” (not her real name), has made for me over the years. KtG is an extraordinary needleworker who loves to make fancy, intricate stuff. She’s always picking out projects that call for tons of color-switching over one thread, or which call for specialty stitches, or which call for construction. I do not understand ever wanting to do these things, so I had pretty much resigned myself to a life without fabulous constructed etuis and scissor keeps and such. Little did I know that KtG would want to pick out projects with fussy stitches and construction to make for me! Who could ask for a better sister?
Here are some of the projects she’s made for me:
Scissor keep and fob; matching needle book not pictured.
Corner-finder keep; note that it’s personalized “Pookie”!
Inside of corner-finder keep. I adore these little things; in fact, I think they’re my favorite non-scissor stitching tool.
Needle book and thread keeper. One felt flap is for 26s and one for 28s!
I mentioned I had a new set of scissors without a keep, and then voila! This was under the Christmas tree for me this year!
So cute! So, so cute!
In short, KtG’s the best! And because she’s made such beautiful gifts for me, this year, Schnookie and I have presented her with the birthday gift of a quilt. We just need her to pick the fabric and pattern and then away we’ll go!
