At our last Stitch Day, I showed everyone a little needlecase that I made a couple of years ago. I used a little wooden needlecase and worked the beaded part in the tubular peyote stitch. I've proclaimed this case as mine and carry it with all of my other stitching stuff.
During my craftroom cleanup, I found my pattern books for these beaded cases. Jennie Might at Black Giraffe Designs is the author of the books and designer of all of the patterns in them. I found a pattern with only three colors, which worked out well because it was pretty straightforward and an easy re-introduction to beading. I also happened to have all three of these colors "in stock". Yes, there are actually some beads that I don't have. Then I got to work. And here's the result. It's the one with the American Flag design.
Also, here's an update on my LHN mystery sampler, "Song Of The Seasons". I'm not exactly getting through this at the speed of lightning, am I? But it is turning out nicely, even though this is kind of a funky picture.
