As soon as a new month commences, the days seem to start galloping by and its check-in day again for the Fully Finished Gallery SAL, hosted by Rachel at Ten Hour Stitcher.This is a free design called Black Needles which can be found here at Ravenelle. I stitched the pattern twice a few years ago.
and after adding a few sparkly bits, one pattern got finished as a needlebook (photo below) whilst the other got discarded.
This month I rescued the remaining pattern and sorted out a piece of suitable batik and some odds and ends to make a similar finish.
I added some pretty sequins to give a splash of colour and repeated a tiny part of the pattern - without any bling this time - for the inside scissor pocket.
A piece of wool felt to accommodate some pins and needles and a small plain black button to close.
