Black Friday

I'm not going shopping today. That's all I have to say about Black Friday. You go. Have fun. Instead, I will continue to work on those Christmas gifts.


I've been eye-balling these darling little needle holders at
Stitch Diva for quite some time. You see, my husband is all into woodworking, so I have developed an appreciation for handcrafted items made of wood. We had also found this place in Riverside that sells exotic wood, so I also have an appreciation for that too. Needless to say, when I saw these I went a little ape and added it to my wish list.

Last week, I finally got around to ordering a couple ~ one for myself and one for a gift. And they are just as precious in person as they appear to be on the web. But after much examination of the craftsmanship, I had an epiphany. Buy a wooden cabinet knob, bore out the screw hole, insert a round magnet and voila! They would make great stocking stuffer gifts for that crocheter or knitter on your list. Or you could just
buy one at Stitch Diva for $10.
