Friday Finish!


I received a copy of Kelley Belfast's new booklet and as always, I love her designs. Of course I had to make one. I did change it up a bit, the kitty is in the middle instead of the end so it would fit the size I wanted. This is an eyeglass case, there is a pair inside.

The beauty of making them this way is, I add a lining on the punched piece, then I attach a wool backing with blanket stitch to that and it makes a nice cushy case. It is also nice for cell phones or pocket cameras.

If you are interested in visiting Kelley's blog, you can find her at With Hook and Needle. If you are interested in her booklet, you can email her and she is also offering the designs on linen, through Saundra at Woodland Junction.

I realized I need more background colors, so I used what I had, I think it is a bit dark and too green, but a little walnut ink, helped with that.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am hoping to get out, but might be a rainy morning tomorrow.

I LOVE what you did with Kelley's templates. Wonderful and you hooked it so quickly. I surely must start doing needle punch and seeing faster finishes. You always choose the right colors.

Oh my goodness that is way too darling - it really infuriates me that I'm so awful at punchneedle, as hard as I worked I just couldn't make it look nice. Yours is stunning!
