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.
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.
