Garden Exchange post No 2
As promised here is what I stitched for mum, we must have both been on a similar idea for the exchange as I made Mum a necessaire too, but one a little different. The design on the front is from Brightneedles Nine-Patch Village, stitched 1/1 on 32ct linen, I changed the colours slightly to suit the lavender haze border colour I had in my stash.
This is the inside of the necessaire, the designs for the pinkeep and the little pocket on the top part are from Brightneedles Nine-patch village...
... and the scissor pocket is kind of like Brightneedles Ladies Collection (I kind of piltched the writing a little as it was how I wanted it to look). Its all fastened together using overdyed silk ribbon for the scissor fastening and to close the necessaire.
I was really happy that Mum loved the whole thing as it was the first I have made like this.
We have had a really great day today down at Fobbles, as always Bev and Edna were wonderful hostesses, and Anne provided us with a lovely lunch - these stitching days there are really good and I will go back to do one again soon. It was so lovely to spend the day stitching with Mum and other fellow stitchers.
