Final time - Happy and Sad

Hello my friends.
September is our final month for this SAL.
I`m happy to say my Needle book is complete and I`ve enjoyed each months projects.
But sad this is the last project for this year on this blog.


My needle case closed with a button from a swap I`ve joined.
For stitching I used Cottage Garden threads 504 Lillipilli.
These threads are so lovely to stitch with and give such a great effect. 


 Showing the front stitched and pieced together..


Partly open with my favourite `Piecemakers` needles stored in a pocket.


The needle case completely open showing inside.
Wool felt for the needles to rest when not in use or in their packets.
Thank you chookblue for a lovely SAL again.
 Also a encouraging Thank you to Susan
your helper. 
I hope another SAL will be soon.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

Oh Clare your needle case is beautiful. I wish I could have kept up with this SAL. It was such fun when I wasn't under pressure.
