Kim's lovely Quaker Schoolgirl Needle Necessities

Recently when doing some "web surfing", I stumbled upon photos of Kim's lovely Quaker Schoolgirl Needle Necessities. I asked her if I could share her work with you. She graciously sent me these photos.

On her sewing case, Kim used the same fabric and thread I did on my models--32-count Maple Sugar linen from Lakeside Linens and Designs and Milady's Teal Sampler Thread from The Gentle Art. Don't you love Kim's lining fabric which is shown in the next photo? I also like the two other cotton fabrics on which she has displayed her case. When I mentioned this to Kim, she told me, I adore quilt fabric as much as I adore hand dyed threads! Kim, who is from Seeley Lake, Montana, also told me, I've been stitching for about 4 years and am a complete addict! LOL!
Kim stitched her needlebook using Briar Rose Sampler Thread from The Gentle Art. What a lovely color!
Thank you, Kim, for sharing your beautiful work with us. It's always wonderful to see what needleworkers do with my designs to make them their own. I hope you're enjoying your new-found "addiction".

Yet more gorgeous finishes to tempt us into new starts. This one is definitely on my 'to do' list. I agree about the lining fabric, it's right up my street.
