Ribbon, Ric Rac and Buttons - Oh My!

I don't do a lot of embellishing. I have a box of different ribbons that I never use and some buttons sitting in a container. However, I had a little project in mind (one of the project's from my sewing day calendar), that required ribbon, ric rac and buttons. So I went out and bought the above.

And here is the result. 2 needle cases. One is for me and one is a gift. Definitely not the greatest thing I have made but it was fun (in a frustrating way). The fabric was already in my stash just waiting for the right project.

Here is the inside of the needle cases. Quilting needles are on the top and embroidery needles are on the bottom.

Making the needle cases made me purge my needle stash. Here are all the needles I got rid of. I still have way more than I could ever use. How did I get all these needles? Every little cross-stitch thing I have ever done came with a needle - guess I have done a few. I kept some needles though to do ...

... The Super Embroidery Kit with my daughter. This was a Christmas present from my sister and will teach her how to do several stitches. Decided we are going to do it together - her to learn and review for me. We'll see how it goes.
