I keep thread in this little pencil box that I've had for years. She recognized it as having had a similar one in her younger days.
We each started a little ornament on 28 count evenweave fabric, using #8 perle for eyelet stitches and accentuate for Rhodes stitches. I’m using pale blue and silver, and although I didn’t take a photo of hers, you can imagine it done in red perle with gold.
I think there will be beads in this ornament’s future. We’ll see next week when we get together to work on them some more.
