Rockome Class Piece finish

"Susan's Needle Nook" by Susan Greening-Davis
A class piece from the 2007 Rockome show in Arcola, IL.

The inside of this piece has black felt to rest your needles.

Something about the over one stitching on this piece that I could not put it down. Thinking it would be a while before I ever got it done, I have to say that I found this fabric very easy to stitch over one. It's evenweave rather than linen and was very enjoyable to work with. Once I started doing the over one wording I realized I couldn't stop until I was done, that was at 1am this morning. Today at lunch I finished off the green darning section at the top and raced home from work and did some chores so I could sit down and put it together. I missed the class at Rockome when this was taught so perhaps I missed out on the button that is shown in the picture that came with it, but I improvised and used something a little different to hold my ribbon and I'm plenty happy with it. This was a most enjoyable piece to work and it's a piece I broke the rules on. I wasn't going to start any projects that were not already in progress until I had finished some, but once I found this among the stash and really looked at it, I was intrigued to the point I had to start working on it, and besides I paid good money for this class. It was a very fast stitch and a most enjoyable one, to the point I was sorry to see it end.

What a lovely job you did on this one, Susan would be quite proud of you! It looks like a fun stitch. You've kept very busy with all your stitching--must be the new house and a stash room was what you needed!
