quilting, embroidery, gardening, family, or anything else I want~~

Ms.Lottie had found an interestingly gorgeous piece of stitchery from an op shop about the same time I was busy putting my newfound stitchery to a new up-cycled use. This is my new knitting needle case, with the addition of a few scrap bag finds.
I had a left over piece of batting and leftover ribbons. Perfect.
I machine quilted several rows and had some leftover binding that was a good fit, in color and length. Since the lacy edge was tattered in a number of places, I had no guilt covering it up.
Now I have a place for my knitting needles and have saved a vintage stitchery from who knows what.
I love not using patterns, sometimes it even turns out to my liking. I love my new case!
Now I just have to figure out what to do with my double point needles and all my crochet hooks! Wish me luck, Elaine
