One More Finish...

Hey, I'm on a roll...last night I finished the retreat smalls.  The stitching was done before the retreat started, but I had the finishing left to do.  When we first received the materials in the mail I wasn't so sure about the colors, but I really liked the design.  Now that they are finished I love the colors.  Crazy, huh?

Here they are - a pincushion, a needlebook and a fob...


The inside of the needlebook and backsides of the pincushion and fob.  The fabric I used to line the needlebook and back the pincushion is from Blackbird Designs new Moda line of fabrics called "In the Meadow."


The backside of the needlebook:


I may pick up some more navy colored chenille (used on the pincushion) and use it to finish off the edges of the needlebook (it covers a lot of sins!)

Don't you think they turned out pretty cute?
