Needlebook Finished!

Yes, I finally finished my needleboek. I have been stitching it in between, but wanted it to be finished this year. Next year I have so much going on, want to start some new projects, so I was afraid this one would end up to be an UFO. It's a design of Periwinkle Promises, I Love Letters. It is stitched with silks, and has various stitches. It's completely hand-sewn, and I am proud of the way it looks!

The outside.


And the inside.

And just in time for Christmas I finished this lovely design of LHN, Berry and Hollies. It was a quick stitch, didn't take too much time, but I like the result.
