The Drawn-thread Needlebook: Sharon Cohen, designer

Project: The Drawn-Thread Needlebook

Designer: Sharon Cohen
(The Nostalgic Needle)

Type of needlework: Drawn thread

Photos: 2

Comments: My very first attempt to drawn thread and I must say that I just loved it. This is great fun to do. Of course the Fleurs de Lys is a symbol special to the "french" part in me, being French Canadian.

This is not a difficult project though when it is your first time, you need to be vigilant as not to make any mistakes. It was suggested to me that I finish it as little decorative pillow instead of the needlebook originally finished below. I think that both finishes looks great.
