It went fast since there isn't that much stitching. It is more or less a border for the needlebook that will go in the middle of this page. I love the needlebook as the front of it is the door pattern. I am trying a couple of new things with the inside. First I changed the stitch to a straight stitch and then I changed the color it is done in to the lovely light blue instead of the dingy light green. Big improvement! You can see the comparison to the front.
I want to work on the needlebook next. I probably should just go on to the inside back but that is boring.
I finished the little purse front. I worked hard and am happy with the result. Then I realized that I have to stitch it all over again for the back. I may change a couple of things just to make it interesting. I think I want to make the scissors a bit darker so they show up more. But I don't want to do them in "walnut" like the pattern recommends. Maybe I'll try to change the color of the flowers too. Purple?
