Stiching Bloggers Blog Hop #11

Since it is NaBloPoMo, I have decided to participate in the Stitching the Night away Blog Hop.

The blogging prompt for hop #11 is:

What has been your most unusual or most interesting stash acquisition to date?

For my most unusual, I would have to say my last Ink Circles pattern.

Little Alien Girl - Ink Circles

When I first saw this pattern I didn't know if I liked it or not.  The more I looked at it the more I liked it.  I wasn't going to buy it, but my LNS had it and it magically jumped into the pile ;)  No idea when I will get around to stitching this one, but there is just something about it.  And, if you know me at all you know I have a soft spot for Ink Circle patterns lol

For the most interesting (could also be unusual too) I would have to say my collapsible foot rest.

What you ask??

Well a stitching friend had one at retreat one year and then Dani found come and picked them up for a few of us.  Here is a picture of what it looks like (photo from web, not mine)

So when you find them, this is how they come.  They actually fit really nicely in those reusable grocery bags when they are folded down.

Then you fold it open and it looks something like this:

They work great to put your feet up when not at home and in your comfy recliner.  The lid also opens up and you can use it for storage... great for storing my stitching blanket when not is use, or your camera etc.  If you go places to stitch and always want to put your feet up, this is a great idea.  I LOVE IT!

Love the foot rest. What a super idea.

That is a very different Ink Circles pattern, but I can see the attraction.

I was a little repelled by that pattern to, and then it grew and grew on me and now I love it. Must be the aliens taking over my brain, lol. That footrest is the best thing ever!

That foot rest looks like a must have, and must agree, I would have never guessed it was Ink Circles

Interesting! A portable and collapsible footrest?? I may have to check that out - talk about being able to stitch almost anywhere! How exciting!

That is an AWESOME pattern, haha!

This is AWESOME! I have a similar one I use but it doesn't collapse. However, it is great to put my stitching away and out of sight and still use as decorative piece of furniture....and the dog hair stays off it!!

I like the part about it "magically appearing".. things like that happen to me too.

The foot rest certainly is interesting and unusual. I've never seen or heard about them.

I'm a bit behind on my blog hop, but *finally* got it up.
