Needlework Accessories

This is the latest thing I'm hooked on - needlework accessories! Apart from scissors, I'm now interested in all types of items to compliment my sewing. I received a parcel during the week from Down Sunshine Lane with some lovely goodies in it.

Scissors attached to fobs, previously purchased.

The mini Lift 'N Snip silver scissors are a smaller version of my favourite scissors. This type I use all the time for my needlework as I love how the little hook at the end lifts up your threads away from your stitching for ease of cutting.

The needlework magnets are so cute and the magnets are quite strong on them. A great idea to keep your needle handy. The Made With Love charms I've seen on other blogs and have been wanting to get some. These will be great when I get more in to the finishing side of my stitching.


Fobs are a major attraction to me at the moment. I have lots of kits to make my own out of linen and threads but the jewelled variety appeals to me also.


The Patriotic Fob is my favourite.


I'm now moving along with Summer Iris. I got some stitching done today and can see the finishing line not being far away.

OH. MY! I'm totally in love with the Rose Fob - I love that lampwork bead! Did you get that fob from DSL, too?

I love those little "made with love" charms - I've been wondering where to get them - I'd love to add them to the fobs I stitch.

Thanks for sharing!

Susan, all items were from Down Sunshine Lane. The fobs are made by My Big Toe so there may be other places that stock these if DSL doesn't have any left.

What fun things! I particularly love the moon needlework magnet. I may have to find one of those. It would definitely come in handy!
