More Klosterstich embroidery for needle books - sneak peek .1 - medieval embroidery technique - cloister stitch - hand embroideryThe Klosterstich embroidery technique is one of my favorite embroidery techniques. As some of you might remember, I always tremendously enjoy working at projects which involve this technique.

Therefore it’s no wonder that I enjoyed working at my recent needle books with Klosterstich embroidery so much that I decided to embroider more small patches  and to sew more needle books. Furthermore I also have the feeling that my “Travel & Largesse Fund” is still much too empty for my personal taste. I definitely need to make more small gifts. :)

This is why I again started working at small patches with Klosterstich embroidery and I already have one more Klosterstich embroidery for needle books I can show you – a medieval 14th century rose – enjoy! :D

Racaire - hand sewn needle books with 16th century inspired Fleur-de-Lis embroidery worked in medieval embroidery technique - KlosterstichMy recent 4day trip to Barcelona as well as the postings about my favorite Barcelona photos were a nice possibility to take a short break from my ongoing embroidery projects.

But now it is definitely time to get back to my embroidery projects and my embroidery related postings with renewed power. And I am very glad to say that I just finished two hand sewn needle books with 14th century inspired Fleur-de-Lis Klosterstich embroidery. :)

2014 - Racaire - medieval embroidery, hand embroidery - Klosterstich and chain stitch - needle book

You maybe remember my recent posting with the sneak peek at the 14th century inspired Fleur-de-Lis embroidery in Klosterstich. As you can see on the picture on the left, I finally found the time to turn this 14th century inspired Fleur-de-Lis embroidery into small needle books.

They look so cute that I was really tempted to keep them for myself but I already have a needle roll and a needle book which mean quite a lot to me. Therefore I will add them to my “Travel & Largesse Fund”. Well, this was anyway my initial plan for them… ;)

You might not believe it but this needle books are rather easy to make. Some of the steps concerning the creation process are very similar to the steps which I already described in my “Craft with Racaireneedle roll tutorial“. But more about this in one of my next postings about this embroidery project.

However, todays focus is on the finished needle books and I took several photos of the needle books for you – enjoy! :D
