This was posted whilst I was in Australia, and for the first time I used my phone for a post!
There was a gremlin in this first paragraph which I have edited now I am home.
Whilst I was on holiday I had lots of time to stitch.... These Holly Hobby needlecases are for a sales table...
The inside layer is wool felt and adorned with some lace
The large beads on the necklace were covered with knitting. This was done with varigated pearl thread and beads before being threaded onto the wire with coloured beads.
These are another three needlecases that I made previously.
