Long and Uncreative Summer

Hi guys,

We are in the process of moving to South Korea this summer. That means all my craft stash is on a slow boat ( takes two whole months) to Korea. This has been a very uncreative summer for me. I can't wait to get all my things and get all settled down in our new apartment in Seoul!

I am looking forward to finding some fun new fabrics and textiles while in Korea! Excited to learn and explore there with my family. 

You guys all enjoy your summer! Have some fun and send me pics of what you are creating. I am thinking of doing a little summer craft round up of some fun projects out there in blogger land since I am not working on anything!

Happy Summer

Turtle Needle Case and a GIVEAWAY!!

Hey guys!!
 A purple turtle needle case.  He is equipped with an on the go ring. Of course you can use him on the couch while watching a good movie also! My sewing machine is in transit to South Korea right now(yes we are moving to South Korea this Summer. Can't wait to get my hands on some amazing new textiles!!)  so I have to rely on my hand sewing and embroidery to get me through the summer. I have lots of hand sewing projects to share so keep in touch!  I made this little guy to keep all my needles in while we are living la vida VAGABOND!  He fits right on my embroidery thread ring and he is just so cute!

Love this little guy. Would you like one as well? Just leave a comment by June 4th and you can have your own little turtle needle case for your on the go summer!

On June 4th a random commenter will be chosen to get their own Little Turtle Needle Case!
Thank you all for reading!!
