This week we celebrated one of my stitching friend's birthday. I had been stitching on her gifts over the holiday as not to be late. It all started with Just Nan patterns.My friend loves Halloween and all things pumpkin and when I saw this design I thought I had to stitch it for her birthday. This is a Just Nan design for a needlebook.
The front of the finished needlebook. I love the way this one was put together, something different and so cute.
This is another Just Nan pattern that was supposed to be the top of the witches hat. It seemed suited to the idea of a halloween emery so I adjusted it a little and added some spooky pins. I enjoyed the needlebook design so much that I decided the square design would make a perfect biscornu.
A sneaky spider crawling to the top
of the same pattern as the needlebook stitched into a biscornu. It was such a fun stitch. The outline looks so dark black because I added some beads as I joined it together. That alone made me decide I was going to buy some short beading needles.
And here is the set all together. I added a tombstone thread winder and a pack of my new favorite needles and there it is. Happy birthday dear friend.
Have a great day stitching. Don't forget to watch Emma tonight for all you stitching Jane Austen lovers.
