Hi everyone! Thanks for all your lovely comments last time round and all your encouragement for finishing this one myself. Yesterday was a cool and cloudy Easter Monday in my part of the world so the plans we had to take a drive and have a walk didn’t materialise. Instead, staying home seemed much more appealing. I reckoned that it was now or never as regards finishing BBD’s Birds and Berries Needlebook. So, out came the sewing machine and ….. ta da! ……
I did an online search for places in the UK stocking the fabric used to line the needlebook and found it here. It's the first time I’ve ordered from this company but I now have them bookmarked and will likely order from them again. I’d ordered before the cut-off time of 1pm for same day despatch and sure enough the fabric was put in the post the same day and arrived the next morning.
Instructions followed, sewing machine used and with thanks to my stitching friend Denise (no blog) who very kindly sent me an envelope of lovely buttons not so long ago, I even had the two buttons to stitch on.
I’m happy with how it turned out and, as I didn’t have a disaster (!!!), I’m hoping it will give me a bit more confidence for future finishing!
Until next time …..
