Needlebooks Finished!

My, this has been a productive weekend! It helps that I had one extra day to get projects done...I have a couple more small finishes to share with you.



First up is the By the Sea Needleroll from Shakespeare's Peddler. This was an exclusive kit for those who attended the Dyeing to Stitch Retreat last October in Virginia Beach. I finished the stitching shortly after I returned, but never had time to do the actual "finishing." Sadly, I did not take a picture of the finished model, so I just kind of did my own thing. This rolls up...hence a needleroll.




And...another finish from the basket of smalls! This you will recognize as the companion piece to the Peacock Pinkeep from Blackbird Designs. I used the leftover silks from my pinkeep project and did my own version of a needlebook finish. This one is my favorite.





The fabric print on the inside of the needlebook is from Blackbird Designs too. The bird buttons were in my stash!



I'm sure I could find more things to finish, but I think I'm going to resume working on Birds of a Feather from With Thy Needle and Thread. Maybe I'll have a picture for you in a day or so!

Enjoy your evening!

OOh, cute finishes. Missed that by the sea retreat but maybe next time. The roll came out pretty but I agree the needlebook you pulled together is just great. CJ in OK

Sweet needlebooks and I loved the scissor fob and smalls in the last post too :-). I have so many smalls I'd like to stitch.
