In My Shop: Stripey Pick Up Sticks in a Pouch

4 sets of colorful pick up sticks in all their stripey splendor are in my shop.  They come complete with 41 sticks, a convenient carrying pouch (fully lined, for those discerning types), and complete instructions for those of you who are new to the game or who have forgotten just how to play the timeless and delightful game of pick up sticks.  Perfect for a child, or perhaps just the child in you.
Find them here.

We loved this game as kids! I'd love to remind my sisters of our games by sending them a set! Thanks for the memory jog and lovely idea.

So many gracious comments about my blog--thank you. It really is nice to hear those things from time to time since there are, of course, moments when I wonder why am I devoting so much time to this bloggy thing? But the interaction with all of you visiting is what really makes it worth it. So, thanks.

Where do you get your fabrics from? They are just so cute!

The Dapper Deer: I get my fabrics a variety of places--but the two places I like in the Minneapolis metro area are Crafty Planet (which also has a virtual shop), and Treadle Yard Goods. But I also pick up fabrics at chain shops like Joann, or on occasion from Etsy shops that sell fabrics or at thrift shops...really, I am kind of a fabric slut and will buy from anyone who has something of interest, if you know what I mean.
