Thank you to everybody for your e-mails and comments re. the needlecase and La-D-Da pillow. How very kind of you to leave compliments AND to share your tips and thoughts! I bought some double-sided tackie tape from Michael's and plan to give it a try once the linen is stitched.
I started & didn't get far. I took out the cross stitches in the 2nd row & added beads for dimension. There are a few beads charted in this pattern & I figured I'd experiment by adding more!
Perhaps I'll get more stitching in tonight.
