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.

Humbug Exchange

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.

I like the desinger so much that I bought a pattern, stitched it and finished it within a week.
