Insert for Needlecase
c.1993 DJV Designs
Designed by Dorothy Van Kalsbeek
This is one of those needlwork treasures, which I have owned & decided it was time to load it up with needles, scissors, and stitch the top!! I completed the stitching part in December posts & pics here. I used Mill Hill Petite Glass Beads: #40123; 42024; 42029. DMC Floss: #451; 501; 502; 503; 712; 3722; 224; 223; 951; 3752; 3756. DMC Perle Coton #12 ecru. Stitched on Antique White 36-count Edinborough linen.
After consultation w/Marjorie, Moonsilk Stitches blog, who suggested using tape to secure the needlework to the needlecase/wooden box ... I struggled to get this needlework mounted. I am happy with the results!
