Four Trees

It is March, which means warm weather is right around the corner. Right? Please tell me spring is coming? We are bracing ourselves for another snowstorm today. I sincerely hope it will be the last one this winter. And, speaking of warmer weather, here is my latest finish:

It is Just Nan’s Gingerbread Needle Case, which is a design exclusive to ABC Stitch Therapy. And, as you can see, it has nothing to do with warmer weather. I am convinced that winter will never end.

The kit includes the fabric, ribbon, beads and enamelled frame embellishment.

I stitched it as per the chart. I’m debating whether I am going to finish it as a needle case (because I don’t really need another one of those), or if I will finish it as an ornament. What do you think? Is it too fancy to be an ornament, or do you think it would look lovely hanging on a Christmas tree?

    How lovely, I suppose depends on the size re putting on the tree? How about a biscornu?

    Ice, snow, rain, the whole blooming lot here and by my reckoning you should be getting it about now as its moved east from us……..!

    Spring will come…… day!

    I think it would make an amazing ornie. I looked the finished needlebook on the link and too much of the design is hidden. This needs to be shown off and the sparkly centrepiece of your festive display.

    I think it would be a lovely ornament. But you know, I have a friend who, in order to limit the charts she buys ONLY stitches needlebooks. So there are those who believe you can never have too many! ๐Ÿ™‚
