The fabric they are laid on is the same fabric that I used for the backings. I have never made a Needle Case before and though I thought I had left enough of a border round the picture by the time I had turned it I realised that I should have left more. That is a lesson I will remember for the future. The pin fob I was really pleased with and think it is definitely the best one I have done so far.
In the past I have always glued the fabric and then glued the two halves together but this time thanks to the very clear instructions Becky gave not long back on her blog I decided to string each piece and then stitch it. I thought it would be quite a long winded affair but was amazed how quickly i did it and because I didnt have to wait for glue to dry it was finished a lot quicker than usual. I took the little pictures for these from the AMAP Le Temps chart as I knew Terri liked that one.
I also want to say a big thank you to those who have taken the time to send cards, e-cards, emails and message of good wishes both here and at Jaynes Attic forum. I am sure all these healing hugs have made me feel so much better so much quicker. Your are wonderful people each and every one of you.
