I had gone on a hunt for a particular piece of fabric and in the drawer I was looking in came across a project that I had all the pieces traced & cut out. This was from 2011 right when I picked up my needle after a dry spell of over 10 to 15 years. I didn't decide to cross stitch at the time but got into embroidery.
Crab apple Hill was a new vendor to me and Meg Hawkey has tons of beautiful patterns that incorporate embroidery but also finishing them with sewing & quilting. This project appealed to me because of the soft colors of Spring and the finishing was all hand sewn.
#812 "Embroidery Envelope" by Crab apple Hill
threads: Cosmo, Wildflowers by CaronSo I decided that now was the time to do this project! And so happy how it turned out.
The inside is a pale light green wool felt and cover & smalls are light cream wool felt.
scissor & pen holderLee do you recognize the scissors? I added some sequins for sparkle so when I open it I get pretty winks - lol!
The heart is a double pocket and above a removable needlebook
Progress as of 7-12-2015I've been stitching on Sojourner also - added a few more rows of the alphabet & bands.
Hope you are enjoying summer. Our temperatures will be climbing back up this week - so not looking forward to the heat! With my love and appreciation - Annette
Ohhhhh, Annette, what a beauty you made here. It's quite simply stunning, your new sewing case. All the little details you added like the beads ... so beautiful.
I think I would also be lost if I was looking for wool felt around here, I would have to rely on the internet.
Love your photos the project has turned out really lovely well done
Your wool felt project is adorable! What a great finish. Great progress on the sampler.
Your finished project is just amazing!!! Looks wonderful!
Your mom's button stash yields the best little treasures! The beads from your wedding gown that she hand beaded just melts my heart! I love how you turn your work into something extraordinarily special! xoxo
Congrats on the absolutely stunning finish Annette. Your finishing is amazing. Nice progress on your stitching.
What a pretty felt project with bleeding hearts and lavender. I'll bet you are glad you revisited it.
Oh Annette! Aren't you glad you found this project waiting for you?!
I love the oval pearls from you mother's stash and the story that goes with them of course.
What a pretty little project you've whipped up for yourself! You're going to enjoy using it for a very long time and especially so with all the treasures and memories that you stitched into it!
The Embroidery Envelope is just so pretty.
Great progress on Sojourner.

What a lovely project! The colors are so pretty--your stitching is just beautiful! You can really do it all!!!
What a sweet finish, Annette! I love it. Sojourner is coming along nicely too. Hugs, Lisa
Love this needlebook...have admired it for years...and you did a marvelous job in stitching it up. Love the beads leftover from beading your wedding gown. What a nice keepsake!!! Beautiful work.

Very beautiful and romantic.
