Summer House Exchange Received (Whew!)

Yes, I was sweating this one -- it was mailed so long ago - July 14 to be exact! I knew it would take a while to reach its destination but I didn't think it would take this long!

Thankfully, Lolo received her summer house exchange from me today! As you can see, I stitched this LHN design and finished it as a needlebook. The back side is personalized and dated. The inside is lined with dupioni silk and WDW wool. I hope Lolo enjoys using this to keep her needles.




This week I stitched and finished a biscornu and a needle roll - all for upcoming exchanges. I'm hoping to work on something for ME this weekend; sounds a bit selfish, I know. But I think I need to take a little break from commitment stitching!

Thanks for stopping by!

by the way.. how do you get the corners so nice and square? Do you sew it together with a machine? Or handstitch the lining to it?

There's nothing wrong with selfish stitching. Although I must say your gift-stitching is stunning!

The silk you used really makes this exquisite - what a great idea for a needlebook. So pretty!

Cathy, you have sent out so many beautiful things-sometimes I wonder how you part with them all. This is lovely.
