I'm happy to say I did finish the needle books in time for stitching group lastnight. It's surprising how long it takes to hand paint, free motion quilt, then sew up one of these. Well worth the effort though - the stitching ladies loved them!
The interiors have a contrast fabric, a wool felt pocket and sheet of wool felt for the needles. They fasten with snaps.
So, this afternoon I'll attempt to continue working on a skirt for me that has involved a little too much unpicking for my liking! Then there are those cushion covers to be made up, the top to be re - dyed, the baby gowns I really should get to, the multitude of embroideries to choose from.............
I should mention that I'll be running my Christmas giveaway very soon so stay tuned :)
