Final appearance of the needlecase, and first appearance of the felt scraps at work







So a couple of the felt scraps became pages in my beaded needlecase, because they matched the original cover pretty well, and I was able to retire the counted cross stitch fabric I'd put in temporarily, and which can now become practice stuff.


Of course, I had to put in a bit more gold thread...and a couple more beads. And here's the case, front, inside and back. I have to stop now before I need to hire an assistant to lift the needlecase and open it for me, pounds of beads involved.  Funny how I've never liked red, but find myself working with it anyway.

this is very pretty with lovely beading and a very useful creation too. I still have my needlecase my elder daughter made when at junior school, she is now 41! I do not think she has done anything with a needle since!

Needlecases never come amiss!
