Garden Gate


  
Garden Gate by Stacy Nash
Stash Linen
NPI Silks
The stitching for Garden Gate has been completed for awhile, it has been languishing in my finishing pile.  The next Homespun Gathering is November 21 and is always fun to have completed projects to share.


I made a few changes.  I added a cartouche on the back.



For the inside, there is a wool pocket at the bottom to hold my thread winder and scissors.  The ribbon is from a kit and I added to the scissors.


The middle section is one half of the design for a pynkeep.  The outside is stitched with Nun's stitch and I added wool felt on the inside for needles.

The top is finished with Kelmscott needle rings for fibers.
Am still undecided about adding cording to the outside edge.  For now, I'm calling it a finish.
