SBEBB Redwork Exchange 2007 Received




I received this beautiful needlecase with my initial personalized from Hazel. She also includes some extra ribbons, buttons and fabric that I can use for my future exchange projects. Thank you Hazel for this lovely exchange.





I always wanted to make a needlecase for myself but at the end I always push-off the idea as I am a failure with sewing machine. My sewing machine has been giving me tension problems for the last one year. Adjusting the tension knobs could not help. So I have sent it to the serviceman 2 weeks back. And guess what...! He said the fault lies on me not the machine. It seems that I have not done a proper job with the threading. He demostrated to me the right way and ask me to repeat what he did. Oh gosh... all this while I have been doing it the wrong way and I even have to pay the serviceman for my mistake. {sob.. sob...} My next exchange is the stitcher pocket exchange. Hopefully I can do a good work out of it.
Ok more photos of Hazel's work ( back and with needlecase open) posted here. By the way, I just bought a new pair of scissor. The scissor fob arrived just in time :-) .....

Update: Wow.. Hazel told me the needle case is hand-sewn. No sewing machine is used at all. Great work Hazel.

Your exchange is just too beautiful for words. I echo what Hazel said. I do all my finishing by hand. I cannot sew a straight line on the sewing machine to save my life!
