Yesterday I had some treatment on my knee and while I was waiting for the surgery I did quite a lot of stitching. My sewing room is cluttered with partly done work or sample pieces I have done in the past.
I have a stall at a christmas market soon so I am trying to finish things off. This little piece with french knots on silk will make a pretty button or hair clip.
This second piece is a needlebook. Hand dyed cotton fabric with silk ribbon, beads, sequins and embroidery.
I will line it with green felt to hold the needles.
There is batting between the fabric and the felt to give it a softer feel.
The last item is silk ribbon on calico over a self covered button.
It just needs some metallic threads to finish it off.
I am always so happy to finish things that have sat around for a while.
