Little Card Holder

Last Friday I had the day off, and spent it cleaning and stitching. I was pleased with my progress on both counts. I made this little pouch to carry in my purse. I got some "Moo cards" to be able to share this blog with people who might be interested in temari, but they were getting messed up in my purse. Now they have their own little cute home.


I have been fighting off a cold this week. I haven't felt too bad, but I have had very little energy for stitching since Sunday. I read Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter, and enjoyed it very much. If you would like to read it, it is available for free at Project Gutenberg here. You can either read it on-line, or download a copy for your Nook or Kindle.

The story takes place in a historic spot in eastern Indiana, south of Ft. Wayne. It is interesting, because Grand Rapids, MI, and Chicago, IL are mentioned several times in the stories. There is a lot of natural history included in her stories, and even some ecological awareness! I think it would be an interesting place to visit. It is an Indiana Historical site.

I did pick up a needle last night, and added some markings to a multipole I am working on. I'm still not sure if it will work or not, I am kind of making it up as I go along. We shall see!
