Blessed Be

As you may recall, Julie from I'll Cross That Leg was the winner of my floss organization contest a while back. I got word that she received the package, so now I can show what I made for her:

Blessed Be
Designer: Plum Pudding Needleart
Fabric: 32ct Brown Linen (Brand Unknown)
Fibers: DMC

I changed the wording to Needles and Pins since I knew I was going to make it into a needlebook for Julie. Unbeknownst to me, she didn't have a needlebook. Now she does! I stitched just the pumpkin for the back cover of the needlebook.

Very fall-ish. Congrats on your finish. It's always nice when the receiver really likes and needs what we sent.

You do such beautiful work Meari. I haven't tried doing a needlebook yet but perhaps that will be a goal for 2011.

Very cute, Meari! (And, if you should be so disposed, I don't have a needlebook, either.)

Lovely ornie. Thanks goodness our heavy snowfall is thawing at the moment. I've finished school for good, shock horror! I can't believe it. Took me three hours to get home from the exam - and cadged a lift there with a neighbour who has a 4x4 vehicle, after about 7" snowfall just before the exam!

glenda said...

I love the colors of this one. Great job!
