Smalls SAL January

Today is the first check-in day of this year for the Smalls SAL hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus. If you would like to join this group and show what you have made during the month, click on my sidebar button for more information.

I had planned to show how my stitching on the Never Ending Sampler organised by Pam at Kitty and Me designs, is progressing, but at the moment it is not.  I started stitching a couple of weeks ago and have changed my choice of thread colours twice already. sigh.  So today I am showing an embroidery which I finished just after Christmas.




The little needlecase design is from the magazine Labores.  In the centre square, the pattern included lots of beads which I decided not to add.



I used some fabric from stash and a square of felt for the inside, put a button in the middle and added ribbon at each corner to close the needlecase.



I´m going to add this to my gift box.



Linking to Martina´s Patchwork and Stitchery.

Happy stitching.
Sheryl

  6. That is so sweet and pretty. Didn't know you were doing the band sampler. I keep saying I'm going to do at least some of it, but I'm not doing enough crafting these days to start. Looking forward to seeing your color choices.

  19. Your beauty always brings my heart delight.
    Yesterday I finally packed up our Christmas decorations and hated to pack away that beautiful Christmas runner you graced my life with.
    Such tinny stitches in that piece that I found myself looking at it quite often.

    Blessings~~
