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.
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.
I participated in a humbug exchange and I received it in the mail a couple of weeks ago. I figured it was about time that I took a picture and posted it. Shiela chose a pattern from Faby Reilly Designs that has lavender and butterlfies on it. It’s really pretty. For a picture of the humbug I stitched for Sheila please follow the link to her blog. I used a band from ‘Crimson Fire’ by Thea Dueck.
