Now Why Didn't I Think of That?

 
I was not too happy with the handle on my Rebekah bag, but said that I would probably learn to like it.  Several blog friends suggested that I coffee stain it.  DUH!  I don't drink coffee, never have, but I keep a tub of coffee for stain in the fridge.
 
Before . . .

 
 
After . . .  MUCH better.  Thanks to all who suggested it.

 
 
In November of 2013, I posted that my proddy tool had gone missing. 

 
 I didn't realize it had been missing for 4+ years.  I knew it had to be in the hooking room ~ somewhere ~ so I would not buy another one.  ($35 and up depending on the site.)  Guess what I found the other day?  You guessed it right.  The proddy tool.  In with cross stitch.  Whodda thunk?  Organization is not my forte.
 
Winter has returned to northern Ohio but that was to be expected.
 
Been binding, cross stitching, hooking.  Will share soon.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

That's hilarious that you found that proddy tool in amongst your cross stitching! I love your wool applique bag and the handle looks much better stained....

I love what you did with that handle. It looks so much better on that cute, cute bag.

What a strange place to keep your proddy tool, with your cross stitch but it make a great story. I'm so glad that you found it. It brings a smile on my face. 😊

HUgs, Julia

Har har...similar to my issue with the camera yesterday. Yup, coffee or tea stain was the answer and guess you are a happy camper now.

Much nicer. SMILE I use walnut crystals to "primitive-up" projects. I've tried coffee and tea, but just haven't had much luck. I don't think I do it right. LOL

Well what a good day! I do love that handle now, and I wouldn't have thought of it and great job on the proddy tool!
Has it been 4 years? My goodness, I remember when you lost it.
I am so sorry winter returned, Winters days are numbered. Have a nice evening.

I like the bag handles that you dyed. I totally understand about your proddy tool,
for 6 months I could not find my key to the exercise room. I looked everywhere. Last month it was time to dust the mail sorter, so I took everything out. Guess what I found. Right in front of me for months. lol

Yes, the handle is perfect now. Great idea. At least you had resisted buying another prissy tool!!
