Needlecase diversion

I have been making a small wall hanging that I will show later this week when it is all finished. In the meantime, I needed to complete something small and I thought I would try out Kaaren's pattern for a needlecase. My middle daughter, Maili, was impressed. I see room for improvement with my binding. It was, after all, only a sample. I like trying out new things and if there is a tutorial, then it is that much easier.
I feel the need to make another biscornu but I have to make a couple of aprons first. It was a request of my eldest daughter, Laila. She, and her husband Gilles, have birthdays within a week of each other and since they just purchased a house, she wants two countryfied (?) aprons. The fabric for both are checks but one is pinky orange and the other is a blue and black gingham. I will show those once they are done. Now back to finishing the quilt - it's for her but don't tell her.


  1. Hi Dolores,

    What a lovely needlecase you have made.

    Good luck with the aprons for daughter and Son in law.

  3. Hi Dolores - lovely needlecase - I know the feeling - you just need to stitch something and see a completed thing! Look forward to seeing your wallhanging.

  4. Nice job on the needle case. I like the colors. The aprons will be fun to do.
