Faery Tales Update and new stitching bag


Faery Tales was in my rotation this week.  I was able to work on the clock.  After putting in around 1,100 stitches, I have completed 8.7% of this design.  Next up is my Fantasia design.

I posted earlier about my Thirty one party and my bags finally came in!!!  This is my large Utility Tote with the Lotsa Dot print.  Doesn't look like much does?...scroll down:


 Here is one of the views with ALL my projects in it (except Sistine Chapel-that gets its own bag that I will post later)  It has in it 9 floss boxes, 15 MillHill kits and fabric, two expanding folders with all my patterns and fabrics.  Plus on the side, all of my Disney ornaments.  Pretty impressive huh???

Here is a close up of it with all my stitching in it. My friend is having a party on Saturday and I plan on ordering the top to the tote so I can close it up.  This is slid under my stitching table and makes my stitching area a little cleaner.

It seems quite a few bloggers are in an organisation mode. I like your bag ... just like the Merry Poppins one that has no bottom and hides all sorts of goodies.

Wow, that does hold a lot! I may have to rethink ordering that to take in the car with us. Great progress on Faery Tales!

Great progress on your stitching! I just received my first Thirty-One bag as a gift, but I haven't decided what to put in it yet. I have some ideas now after looking at yours!!

I didnt know you could buy a top to go on those bags. I bought one of these a good while ago and hate that there isnt a way to close it up. I will have to get a top for it.

Its funny how bags for our stitching are so important. My other wips are kept in a draw in the lounge but my bag sits next to my couch with my current project and "tools". I use a baby tote but have been on the look out for a new bag for ages, just havnt found the right one yet.

I'm very excited to watch your progress on Faery Tales. Another blogger that I follow has been stitching this one for over a year and she is almost done.
I love your new bag and can't believe how much stash you got in it.
