This week's piece for Jan's work basket is ready to be delivered, I have made a thread keep, well at least I did the embroidery, Paul turns these wooden coaters into thread keeps for me.
The  beetle stitched  with metal thread, silver shot with green  and with some lovely gun metal shade leather for his head, the background fabric is shaded green through to purple and I wish it shows up better in the picture.

What a fantastic threadholder. Your embroidery blows me away, the beetle is simply stunning!

I can't believe that beetle is stitched! He's an amazing little guy!

I thought it was a metal beetle. I look forward to seeing Jan's completed set in the future
