First OPAM for August

Its only the 2nd of August and I have a finished project!! Lets hope this continues! This Needlecase was one of the patterns we received at the Evandale Gathering a little while ago! I actually started on Buttons & Bows by Gail Pan on the day (which I not long finished!), I totally LOVED this Needlecase and couldn't wait to start it! I finished the hand work about a week ago, done the applique pink flower petals Friday night, and started putting it together last night!

I love how the stitchery is framed by the ric-rac:

This Needlecase is quite big, so I thought I would add some pockets to the inside - to keep full packets of needles and a pen maybe?.......


I am SO happy with the way it has turned out!

As well as the Needlecase pattern, there is the pattern for a Bag and the most GORGEOUS Glasses Case in the shape of a Ladybird! SO cute! I finally have the patterns available in my on-line store, it is called A Ladybird's Serenade by Natalie Ross, and Gail Pan's Buttons & Bows have arrived too!
