Can I Borrow A Pencil?

August 3, 2008

Today’s favorite thing is a pencil case my mom made me for third grade. (About 25 years ago – yikes!) It was a surprise. I loved it then, I love it now. I still use it, keeping it in my project bag. It is kept filled with knitting and needlepoint supplies. It’s also been a make-up bag, and even a pencil case!

I’m not sure if my favorite thing about the pencil case is the red velvet fabric, the cute little pocket on the back, or the fun plaid inside.

This is one of the best things my mom made me.

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.
