My new finish

I've been working on this for a couple of days and what took the longest was the finishing.  I found the perfect fabric for it pretty quickly which really surprised me.  I have the dangest trouble picking out fabrics!  This is a Stacy Nash pattern called Primitive Sewing Tray and I love it....but I don't love it enough to stitch again so you'll find the pattern in my store.


While looking around Michaels the other day, I came across the neatest thing.  If you look closely to the corners of the needlecase, you'll see little studs.  Those are micro mini metal paper fasteners.  The spokes that you punch thru the paper with are less than 1/4 inch long and they are fantastic looking on primitive samplers.  They come in alot of different colors so check them out if you're looking for something different.

Thanks for looking!
Blessings, Barbara
