I've enjoyed stitching on all the small pieces to this project. Here is the box top (the box is on order!).
After taking this picture, I've decided to rip out the little basket under the bird and restitch it in a darker color.........you can't even see it! Here is the outside of the pretty needlecase. Now, I'm not a great finisher, but with the great instructions that Katrina and Judy supplied, I was able to accomplish this with no problem.
Sorry for the shadows........I need to find a better place to take these pictures! Here is the inside of the needlecase, a scissor's fob and the small bird will become a floss keep, once I add a metal ring to the cording. I loved the idea of pinking the edge of the felt in the needlecase, think it added just the right touch.
At the December guild meeting, the "table gift" was a kit to make a scissor's case to go with the rest of the accessories. Believe it or not, it really is green, not blue, and it looks wonderful with the rest of the items.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
