Dame of the Needles by With thy Needle & Thread....

Greetings stitchers.....
Thanks to all of you who entered the "Guess my project Giveaway..." It sure was fun to get all of the responses.... Of the 84 emails, 77 guessed correctly! Amazing!!!! And, such an array of count of linens and thread color preferences..... I loved reading all the emails.. Yes! Brenda Gervais of With thy Needle &Thread has done it again!!!!!!
But, before I announce the name pulled out of the hat, I'd like to present... My finished version of this beautiful design....
Dames of the Needles
Stitched with all the specified threads on Olde Towne 36 count R&R linen from Dyeing to Stitch.... Isn't it sweet??
Dames of the Needles
Here is the inside of the needle roll.... The smaller appliquéd pin cushion is tacked on the inside lining.... Also, the vintage seam tape is also sewn down to tie your favorite scissors in place.... And, what can I say about the appliquéd blue bird..??.. I had 2 wools that matched so that the body of the bird is a subtle plaid.... I really enjoy handiwork....
Dames of the Needles
Here is a closer look of the pretty bird..... Notice the small sampler pack of needles that I bought when purchasing the chart!!! Brenda thinks if it all....

The antique buttons I collect sure did come in handy... I love how the dangle slightly.... The perfect accent...
Dames of the Needles
And, if you know me, I use everything.... So with my scrap of blue wool, I thought a mini-strawberry emery would be cute.... It's even stuffed with diced up pieces of scrap wool... :)
Now, if you are one of those stitchers who are planning on stitching this beautiful piece, please do call on me with your finishing needs.... I have all the supplies on hand; from the wools and tiny button for the birds eye to the calico fabric, vintage seam tape and dangling buttons! Email me for a quote... I'm here to help anyone!!
Now...... I'd like for
Leslie H of Leslie's Garden & other Delights to please email me! Your name was drawn for linen and some threads in the giveaway.... Congrats Leslie!!!!!

As summer cranks up, enjoy your time, sip a little lemonade and be safe..... Now...., where's my next project....?

Good morning Faye, I follow your blog and love this needle case and your fantastic finishing. I tried to get your email address through your website, but it didn't work as I do not have Outlook. Could you reply with your email so I can get some information about finishing. Many thanks, Nancy nancylekern@gmail.com
