Sandra S. from "across the pond" shows off two of her completed projects

When I taught at Fobbles in the UK last month, Sandra S. of Harrow brought in her completed Crown and Needle Etui for me to see.  Unfortuntely, I neglected to take a photo of Sandra's lovely work.  So, I asked her to send me some photos.  Much to my delight, Sandra sent photos not only of her finished Crown and Needle Etui but also of her Friends in Stitches Sewing Case, a class piece.  Thanks, Sandra.

The first photo shows the front sides of both projects.  If you look carefully, I think you can see that Sandra added facial features to her cute.

Here is the reverse side of Sandra's Crown and Needle Etui.  I doubt you can see it in the photo, but the lady is holding her needle in the air like a scepter.  She is wearing a crown on her head.

Sandra sent a photo of the inside of her Friends in Stitches Sewing Case. On the left is a pincushion, and on the right is a divided pocket holding Sandra's scrimshaw pieces. 

And here is the back of Sandra's sewing case.  As you can see, it looks like a small sampler.  Each of the diving bands uses a different stitch.

Thank you, Sandra, for sharing your beautiful work.  I hope our paths will cross again in the not-too-distant future, either on your side of the "pond" or mine.

During my recent blog give-away, many of you wrote that you had stitched some of my designs.  I would love it if you would email me photos so I can see your work and share it with others.  Thanks in advance.

I hope my Friends in Stitches looks as good as Sandra's. No wonder she wasn't in the class at Fobbles on the Saturday, as she'd already stitched it.
