... the end.....

... of this Stitch A Long hosted by Chookyblue....

This is a needlebook from Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful...

I chose not to piece the fabric for the front and used some sewing themed fabric instead ....... 


the stitching is done in Cottage Garden Thread "Cranberry" .... 


... some felted blanke wool for the needle patch....


... I was delighted to find a button which matched the fabric to perfection....
I just did a little plaited rope to wind round the button ....



.... thanks Chookyblue and all the encouragers on that blog.....actually it's good timing to end this so I can get on with sorting out my gift for Chookyblue's SSCS .......

Righto, Gotta Go..... I've got behind on my list - I need to speed up .....
