Blackbird Designs Free Petite Lettres Rouges

I wanted to make this design from Barb & Alma into a needlebook and over the bank holiday weekend I had the time to do it.
This is a photo of the front

This is the inside.

I made some accessories to match the needlebook.

I also made this beaded scissor fob to put my gorgeous little hornbook on, it is so sweet my initials are engraved on it. It was made for me by Bloom Woodworks

Thanks for visiting my blog I am off to see my daughter for a coffee now

A Noel ornament

Another finish at last.
This beautiful design is a free chart which can be downloaded from here.

I stitched the design 1 over 1 with DMC threads 815 & 321 on 32 ct Natural linen. It was stitched mainly on holiday in Tenerife last November. I have taken ages to decide on the finishing but am happy to have it as an ornament, one of many I am aiming to do by Christmas for a special little tree.
