just call me Miss Organised

I know that it has not much to do with cross stitch AGAIN but the xstitching I`m doing these days is top secret, i.e. I can`t post photos until my Mum hands them over to the recipients (for those who don`t know what I`m talking about - and that includes me - I can leak this info: my Mum`s retiring and she wants to give some farewell present to her colleagues (ALL of them!) and this means I have to stitch 25 identical cards). I`ve been working on these for almost 2 weeks now and have only 10 more to go but if I`m honest, I can barely look at the design now - and it`s my own too! Anyhoo, the past couple of days I made this as a let-me-get-away-from-the-cards project:
"Oh, very nice... but what is it?", I hear you ask. Well, let me unroll it for you:
Ta-dah! It`s a knitting needle and crochet hook holder, based on the chefy-knify-thingy idea - now is that anal or what?

  1. Very nice holder! I want one too. :)
    Good luck with the card project. It will be very interesting to see the final outcome.

  2. Thanks Katya! I`m afraid it`s still another month before I can reveal the picture, Mum has her farewell-do on 4 June - which is great news coz it means I have a bit more time to finish and post them (now that thought alone gives me the chills! If these disappear as well, I don`t know what I`ll do!). Still, I`m hoping for the best :)
