August Smalls SAL

Hello hello,  The last Wednesday of the month means it is time for the Smalls SAL check-in, so if you would like to stitch a little something each month, do join us and visit Heather at Stitching Lotus for all the information.

This month I haven´t had time to do much needlework although I did manage to finish the pattern by V Enginger which I was struggling with and it now just needs finishing touches and so now I am posting photos of a needlebook which I made for my stitching buddy Margaret of  Margaret my blog.




I really like this design by Lizzie Kate and I may do more of these as Christmas gifts, needlebooks are always so handy.




I added a tiny length of thread to the bobbins to add a bit of colour.


Hope to get working on some Halloween or Christmas stitching now that all my visitors have gone home and I will have more time.

See you next week.

Sheryl

  10. Beautiful needle book and the bobbin charms are looking great!! How do you cut that fabric with zig zag border? I have used pattern craft scissor but I could not cut a felt fabric with that , they could be used only on papers.

  22. Needle books make wonderful gifts even for non sewers. Most of my non sewing friends have asked me to make them because it is a good place to keep safety pins and the odd needle with thread for sewing on escapee buttons. You new little book is so pretty and I love those spools with thread!
