Miss Kitty's Dragons Needlebook is Finished

I like the cat print I found for the lining, even if it is covered up by the felt pages for the needles. 

 Here are the front and back of the closed needlebook.  There’s a ribbon at each corner to tie it closed.

I want to make a matching biscornu sometime, but not today. I think the center diamond that makes up the back of the needlebook will be just the right size.

This Japanese stitching kit is my next project.  It was a birthday gift from my friends Kaz and Yoh. The directions are in Japanese, but I think I can figure it out.  The kit came with everything beautifully packaged. The little white rectangle contains a tapestry needle, a beading needle, and a needle threader.  There’s even a frame!

Miss Kitty looks lovely. I am going to search for mine this weekend - I know it's in my stash cupboard. Your Japanese kit looks lovely. I prefer counted work to surface stitchery - how about you?
