Meet Earl Grey

I've discovered Annie Lane Folk Art (she has an Etsy store).  Her designs are quite humorous.  One of the things needlepointers need is needle minders, or needle magnets.  When you're doing cross-stitch on fabric, you can weave your needle through the fabric at the margin when you've finished a stitching session.  But needlepoint canvas is too stiff to do that, so what to do - why, use a magnet in the margin of your canvas and lay your needle on the magnet.  Hence a wide variety of needle minders, and another thing to collect.   Some people purchase a new needle magnet for each project, matching the magnet to the project.  I'm not quite that bad, but I do have a bunch of different needle minders.

My latest two purchases are from Annie Lane.  The first one is of a cat "hiding" behind a flowering plant, with the title "Danger Lurks."  And the other one is Earl Grey:
