November Smalls SAL check in

Having had very little time this month for any stitching apart from a couple of Christmas projects, I turned to my overflowing UFO drawer and found a half finished hardanger pattern which I made into this little needle book.


From my stash I chose my favourite pinks and greens.



The tiny hardanger design I had already stitched so I´m not sure where the original pattern came from. I just added an extra beaded surround.


and a bit of trim and felt to the inside.




I´m pleased that I got an UFO completed which will make a nice small Christmas gift.

  6. Your needle book is gorgeous, Sheryl!:) love the beaded border. I have admired hardanger and even bought a book but never got to try it. It looks like a very delicate work and might require patience. Hopefully someday I will make one:)
