Come said the Wind

Hello everyone,
" Come said the wind"  and although a cold dark day, we took heed and donned our coats and boots and headed for the countryside in persuit of some autumn delights, leaves, berries, holly and the elusive mistletoe, all imperative to decorating for Christmas.



This embroidered needlebook was started years ago.



but only just finished last week, surely to be gifted this Christmas.



I made a little crochet acorn scissor fob - yes, it is meant to be an acorn, following Sharon Ojala´s tutorial but as I didn´t have the right thread colours on hand, perhaps, although fun to make, it is not very convincing.



Thank you for visiting. Be sure to visit the online Advent Calendar hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching.  My day is the 19th. Until next week.

Sheryl

  7. Such a delightful and clever use of the design, and an absolutely beautiful finish! And *of course* the fob is an acorn - adorable! (can't remember who it was - shame on me - but I recently saw that someone used DMC to crochet small flowers as she didn't want to purchase large balls of crochet cotton in multiple colors ... brilliant idea, IMO)

    Have always loved this poem - my grandmother used to recite it to me when I was very small - and when I finally get around to stitching this design, I'll alter the words slightly so it will match the way she said it. Thanks for the smiles and for bringing to mind the memory. :)

    1. That person who used DMC thread to crochet her tiny flowers was Me, so many colours to choose from if making something very small.

  13. A wonderful idea for a needle and scissors case vey beautifully stitched and put together. And the little scissor fob is such a sweet addition and complements the autumnal theme of the case. A really great gift. Is the design by the Prairie Schooler?
