I was thinking how to finish this all the time, it was a bit big to be a Pinkeep or Pincushion, so I was thinking to make another basket lid.
But I realised that I had some wooden boards like Hornbook in my stash, and the size was just for this design!
So I decided to make Hornbook with this stitch!
I trimmed stitched piece with light pink pom-pom trim, and I think it made this a good accent.
I like pom-pom trim very much, it's so useful to hide messy parts, lol
By the way, this is a very lovely design, isn't it?
I thought this would be a perfect gift for Valentine!
So I told to my husband to give this to him, but as I expected he seemed very confused and said... "uhmmm, I'm sorry but, no thanks... I can't do anything with this... You can display at your stitching place! But thanks anyway..." LOL
See, I can't share my passion with a snowboarder, lol
I just teased him, I guaranteed that he would say so!
By the way, the wooden board that I used this time as Hornbook is like them on the left photo.
I don't know what they are, or what to do with them actually, but they were sold as "Message Board" or "Craft Borad", but I thought if they could be Hornbooks?
So I have bought them and stocked in my closet.
I think they are a bit big as a Hornbook or thread holder, if I compare to lovely Hornbook which Claudia gave me before.
But I think it's OK to use them like this time...
I'm quite satisfied this result, anyway! :D
Next time I would like to make thread holder with this wooden boards!
By the way, recently I can't use "Spell Check" system when I post the article, somehow...
I wish there were "Grammer Check" system, as well, it would very helpfull for non English speaker! lol
