Snowdrop Needlebook Progress

I’ve put the needlebook together.  Only thing I haven’t got done on it is the felt pages and the beads along the spine.

Snowdrop Stitching

I bought the Snowdrop Collection from Faby Reilly, which consists of a Needlebook, Scissor Case and Biscornu.

The patterns call for 32ct antique white but the linen options are not great in my city (Halifax, NS) so I raided my stash and found this 32ct linen by Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.  I think the colour is Snowdrifts.  The only thing I’m missing for finishing is the felt for the needlebook.  I really like how the stitching looks on this linen.

Sweet Heart of Mine

In February 2013 I went down to Williamsburg, Virginia for a stitching retreat. I have had all of the stitching done for a while now but I hadn’t completed the finishing.  I had the needle book done in 2014 but it was only this weekend that I finished the scissors case and the floss purse.    I’ve never been great at mitred corners but I think these ones are pretty good.

Chicken Scratch Embroidery

I hadn’t been posting a lot lately but now I’m in the mood.  I have been curious about Chicken Scratch Embroidery/Gingham Embroidery since I saw a mention of it on Mary Corbet’s site Needle n’ Thread.  I got a kit to make a table cloth and am currently working on the centre portion of the fabric.  The pattern uses double sided cross stitch.  I love the shade of green…it makes me think of spring.  Next I want to try the Christmas tree ornament.
