Kate sits opposite me at stitching days at the Guild. We normally compare notes on things French, but neither of us have been able to travel since the pandemic began. She has this lovely needle-case that she designed and stitched, so I asked her permission to put up some photos of it.
It is stitched in silk threads on Moray silk fabric. (The one that has a kind of watermark in the weave.) I really covet this piece.
This is the back and you can see how she has bound the leaves together. That twisted cord around the edge sets it off nicely.
Inside she has printed an index of the needles, the following leaves are in Doctor's Wool Flannel. (You can see the sheen on that silk fabric better here.)
And on the front cover she has stitched this delightful motive.
A couple of detail photo's to see the actual stitching.
