Spring exchange from Jayne

Jayne N, my partner for the HOE spring exchange, sent me this lovely scissor/thread keeper this week.

The design is "S is for Spring" by Prairie Schooler, which she stitched and finished beautifully- I love the scalloped thread cards she made for it.

This is the needlebook I stitched for my exchange partner, Rosa:

The design is called "Dream Big" by Country Cottage Needleworks.
I stitched the year and our initials on a little piece of homespun on the back...
and added a piece of Weeks Dye Works wool and 3 little mother-of-pearl bluebell thread rings inside.


  1. Janet...You needlebook is wonderful, did you follow a particular pattern for finishing?

    1. Thanks, Marie- I'm flattered that you'd think it was a pattern, but I just sort of made it up as I went along... :-)
