Love of needlework exchange


This is what a stitched and finished for Julianne in the SBEBB Love of needlework exchange. This was the forst time I did this finish. The front design was taken from casamia leafelt and the back of the design I made up myself.

It was quite a fiddle to do this finish and I struggled with it quite a bit but I'm pleased to know that Julianne loved it. I lined the inside with 2 different red and white cotton fabrics and the stitching is done on 32ct natural linen.

Love this Sue and especially the little girl stitching on the front. I just went to the casamia site to have a look for it but unfortunately there boutique is not open at the moment.

Oh Su,
It really looks lovely. Your finishing is amazing. You have created such a pretty little pin holder. I'm sure Julianne will treasure it.
Hugs, Angela
