Stitcher's Angel Pin Cushion, Early Christmas

This is my third gift I made for my Stitcher's Angel recipient. It looks like a Stitching Angel to me. I made it into a pincushion. It was actually an ornament kit from my local quilt shop I had not made up yet from a number of years ago. I sent my package with all 3 gifts off to my recipient last week.

I plan to make some ornaments for my daughters in the next month for Christmas with this pattern.

Several weeks ago, DH was browsing the flyer from Harbor Freight, and telling me what he was interested in buying, and items they had. He came home, and showed me all he had gotten. He mentioned something else he had thought about getting, but didn't want to spend the money.

I mentioned that if I had the money, I would have gotten the
tool chest, that is lined in felt, and had a number of drawers inside.

So last week, he went off to Harbor Freight again, and got
me the tool box, and told me it was my Christmas present but I could have it now.

Of course, last night I didn't fill it up with tools, but threads, ribbons, beads, etc!

I love it. Plus it has locks on it so I can lock it when the grandkids (especially the little guys) come over so they don't get tempted.

I got rid of 3 plastic containers last night as I was able to get the contents in this.

I love this chest Karrin, I wish we had a harbour freight store close by, I can only do catalog which means the shipping would kill anything I saved on something like is beautiful...
