This weekend is International Hermits Stitch Weekend I started stitching friday night and my first project was to finish constructing a stitchers necessaire for my oldest grand-daughter Rachel who is off to Waikato University tomorrow to study. She has a hussif that I made for her a few years ago but I thought something more practical was needed this time. I still had some fabric scraps from a previous gift including a small piece of the Happy Hen fabric I know she is fond of, here is the finished result.
It has the Happy Hen fabric on the front and the inside pocket, black with white spots on the back, white with red spots inside. I managed to scan a hen from the fabric and print it on cards for the thread holder and also a card with elastic on it. Rachel and I had a mornibng window shopping together recently she specially loved the little ribbon roses and not on my original plans I went back later and bought a packet. we looked together at embroidery scissors and found the one with a rooster, to her surprise it was in her necessaire.
Last night I joined the family for dinner and gave Rachel her gift, today they have left to take her through to Waikato university to start her studies there. Later that evening I started on a new piece of embroidery some more serious embroidery I wanted to start a piece for my next page for my Needlework masters Monthly SAL. so at the end of the weekend I will post my progress on this piece.
Happy stitching specially to all taking part in the IHSW.
