What’s in Your Bag?

Stitch Bitch proposed this meme a couple of weeks ago. Always a day late and a dollar short is me, but it’s been fun to read what other people carry in their stitching bags. Here’s mine:

My repurposed bag from a Womens’ Conference my best friend attended several years ago.

Back row, left to right:

in purple bag is the end of a roll of paper towels around which I wrap unframed WIPS; my PS Christmas Eve chart & framed WIP; in the yellow plastic envelope just above is some silks I carry around in case I want to work on a monochrome ornament although I no longer carry around the chart for those ornaments (!); my Quaker Halloween chart & my floss selections is under the large blue plastic envelope which contains my WDW, GAST, and Crescent Colours floss lists; then the scavenger hunt answers for the Online Needlework Show and some miscellaneous freebie charts. In the front row is a bookmark, my needlebox, and a spool of red thread for marking fabric centers or attaching fabric to scroll frames, and lastly, a fat honking pile of orts (Yuck!)

My needle box has some Thread Heaven, a threader, needles (Doh!), scissors, a seam ripper. a yellow pencil for marking off my working charts. I think that’s a spare skein of black or DMC 3371, some odd buttons and more orts.

Pig Pen with straps!
