TUSALs, Biscornu, Needlebook and SABLE

Lots and lots of pictures!
Not only am I late with March's TUSAL, I'm shamefully late with the TUSAL for February!
 This is February's picture
and this is March's:
I guess I need to explain that I'm using a large empty medicine bottle next to my stitching spot, and transferring the contents to my TUSAL jar when it gets full - which seems to happen roughly monthly.

Michelle received the February biscornu from me for the Please Pass The Biscornu exchange.  I used a freebie chart from Louison, a very talented lady!  I added clear beads for sparkle where they seemed to want to go.

Michelle's picture is so much more attractive than mine - click on the link above to visit her blog and see it, if you wish.

Remember the other needle book I mentioned angel stitching for Tiny Treasures Exchange, Too?
It has been received, so I can share pictures now.

I evidently forgot to take a picture of the inside :-(.  I took the color scheme from the fabric that lines the needle book.  Rats!  I'll have to check my stash and see if I have a bit of the fabric left to take a photo.

SABLE - Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy.  Even though I've drastically reduced my SEX (take your mind out of the gutter - that stands for Stash Enhancement Experience!), the kindness of another crafter has increased my stash!  A sweet lady I work with was showing me an altered album (beautiful!) she was working on.  I remarked that although it was tempting, I refuse to start another hobby, because my various stashes are already overflowing my craft room.   A few days later, she brought me box of goodies!

Here, in no particular order, are some of the goodies:
Lots of books!
Some really cool grommets!

  Including this by Mosey and Me
This reminds me of Sloss Furnace, in nearby Birmingham, Alabama

I see a Butterfly Fairy being stitched in the near future. - That's Lavender and Lace # 42 - Fairy Grandmother.
If you've stuck with me to the end  congratulations on your endurance!
Thank-you for visiting today!
