Beam Me Up Scotty... Its Done!

Needle Guardian

I've done it! I've finished my Needle Guardian... and I've finished it! I completed the stitching during Star Trek III : The Search for Spock. Took a break from my marathon and did the finishing.


For the finishing on this I kinda improvised. The directions with the needlecase say to sew the felt at the center to the inside of the needlebook, and whola! Well I wanted to hide the back of my work, this being a TW the back isn't usually pretty! So I broke out my new sewing machine and finished it by machine instead of by hand. I sewed a plain white cotton to the back of my stitching and put the felt inside and sewed down the middle. I'm incredibly happy with the results!

Crikey, I didn't realise I was so far behind in reading! Your TW needlecase is divine - I just love it! Can't wait until the design is available for sale, it's gorgeous! And I agree with your idea for finishing, I'd want my 'backside' covering up too ;)
