Drum Roll Please

Here it is!!!!! I made a Needle Nest like this a few years ago. I use it when I am doing a project with a small number of colors (up to 20 colors), and especially when I am using overdyed flosses. I mark the numbers on my chart from 1 - 20. I then park a needle in the nest at the number as it corresponds to the chart. I then have a needle ready to go when I encounter that color again. I love it and I use it all the time. Due to the encouragement of many, I have charted this project. I am making it free to all. To download a PDF of this chart please visit Please follow the links for this complimentary chart.

While there please check out the cross stitch charts created by Prairie Grove Peddler. They are wonderful. They are also having a scavenger hunt during the month of August. They will be giving away 72 charts in all, 18 per week, plus everyone who plays all 4 weeks gets 3 charts free! If you also enjoy quilting, they are doing a similiar game on the quilting side of her website. All the details are available in her newsletter so sign up and play the game.

Yippee Skippy - - and poof I am a designer. I have to admit that I am thrilled to have survived the charting software and that I am able to share this idea. I want to say thank you to Cheryl for helping to make the design available for download.

Yes!-You are a designer!
Thank you for the chart and as you said, it was also very interesting to see the other cross stitch work on that side.
Yes, Taffy, that was the beginning. You made the first step. It would be nice if you have fun to design more.
