This is the main pocket,
And the pocket above.
I really like the colors in this . Unfortunately I did not take a pic of the outside, which is all done in flame stitches.
Here is the needle book
It has a little pocket behind the needle pages to house the scrimshaw ( which is on order)
We had a very nice banquet - as you can see, Marie Z. and I are suitably serious for the occasion, Ava & Michelle however....
Our entertainment was a man from Antigua who taught us a bit about music and rhythm... along with none other than Michelle, who demonstrated rhythm very well.
Ava had a birthday while I was there and this is what I stitched her since she celebrated her birthday atop the Eiffel Tower last year. It is unstuffed in that picture, I had to wait to get to the States to get ground walnuts for the stuffing.
We also celebrated another friends birthday and I stitched her a scissor fob - you can see the scissors I put the fob on in the background.
Wishing you happy stitching. Ciao, until I get back from Italy.
