New Stitching Tool

I was reading the Nordic Needle Newsletter and in the new items they had something of interest. It's called a "Stitch Picker". They were selling them with matching Scissor Fobs for about $20 a set. Well I have more scissor fobs than scissors now and have charts to make several more so why would I want to buy one. I thought about this for a while and looked in my stash to see what I may have to make one myself. This is what I came up with....


So for less than $1. I have a "Stitch Picker". I used a size 22 needle that I would never use to stitch with, a Sunflower and Dragonfly Charm and some beads from my stash. I think it came out nice for my first one. I'm going to look for more charms and make more, maybe even RAK a few to those who have RAK'd me. Maybe if I did them with frog charms they would keep the pesky frogs away from stitching and if they didn't it would make it easier to do the Frogging.
Until next time....Happy stitching (or Picking)

I just bought something with 2 needles in it to count 10 or more stitches at a time, with a decorative end. You could do those too!
