No time like the present


I want to start a new work but before I can do that I have to finish off some old ones.  I don't know about you, but I just can't throw away left over bits of linen or good threads left over from some other project.  I try to use them up on needlebooks and things like that.  Trouble is I don't finish them!!

So, this weeks WIPW is all about getting back to these pieces and completing them.  The only one I have completed out of this lot is the little rabbit.  (But I have got one finished.)  There is not a lot of work on the two red work pieces and the experiment on Aidia will have to be for me.

This is the lining for the bunny needlecase.

This last one was all about the left over thread.  I bought the little book on a stall in Germany back in the 1970's and carted it around the world with me.  Because of the fine thread this is taking a lot longer than I thought and looking at it there isn't a lot of space for seams.  Hope it works out alright.

When it came to putting the leaves in the books I just couldn't cut into my good wool flannel  and used flannelette as I will be donating these for the Guild sale  table.

It's always good to have something small and quick as a palate cleanser before you tackle a New Project!
