Yes, I know, I already wanted to start working at my Klosterstich hands-on photo tutorial but I have to admit that I just finished another small needle book with Klosterstich embroidery instead. 😀
While I was getting the materials for my hands-on photo tutorial together, I realized that I still have two small patches with 14th century inspired Klosterstich embroidery which I haven’t turned into needle books yet… Continue reading →
Ready for another needle book with Klosterstich embroidery? …and in the mood for a hand embroidered medieval 14th century rose?
Well, that’s great because I have a cute combination of both for you today. 😀
Again I turned one of the recently embroidered Klosterstich patches into a small needle book for my Travel & Largesse Fund. I think this needle book is even more beautiful that the needle book which I finished yesterday. …but well, I am biased, therefore decide yourself. 😉
And here the picture of my new needle book with the 14th century Klosterstich rose – enjoy! 😀 Continue reading →
I am very glad to say that I just finished another new needle book with Klosterstich embroidery. 🙂
You remember my sneak peeks at my most recent Klosterstich embroidery? Well, I already turned one of this small patches with Klosterstich embroidery and some leftover wool fabric into a new needle book.
This new needle book looks really cute. It is definitely a great addition to my Travel & Largesse Fund.
…and now – enjoy the pictures of my new needle book with Klosterstich embroidery! 😀
…and after all the small patches for my new needle books showing flowers done in Klosterstich technique, I again have a 14th century inspired fleur-de-lis Klosterstich embroidery for you.
With all this small embroidered patches lying before me, I really think that I should go on and transform them into some nice needle books now. They will be a beautiful addition for my “Travel & Largesse Fund”.
My pile of U.F.O.s* is already big enough and doesn’t need any further addition. Therefore – where are my leftover wool fabrics, threads and needles?! *lol* 😉
But first things first – here a picture of my most recent fleur-de-lis in Klosterstich embroidery for you and some additional progress pictures – enjoy! 😀
The 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! 😀
My 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. This is one of my favorite ways to restore my energy and inspiration for new projects and postings.
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. 🙂
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 Racaire – needle 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! 😀
About 2 years ago, during my very first stay in the states, I gave away some hand embroidered needle books as gifts to interesting people which I met on my journey.
I was told that this needle books were highly appreciated and became treasured and loved items of their owners. Well, what shall I say, this kind of message is always a great balm for the soul of an artisan. 🙂
I was very pleased with my new German Brick Stitch pattern and the finished embroidery for the first needle roll. Furthermore I also tremendously enjoyed working with the beautiful new silk/wool thread I just got from the yarn shop.
Though I just finished the embroidery for my 14th century French pouch commission, I was not able to proceed with the assembling of the pouch before I had all needed materials together, pre-washed and ironed. Preparing the materials for the pouch commission, I wanted to work at some embroidery. That was the moment when I remembered that I had some embroidery – well, this German Brick Stitch embroidery – still waiting to be turned into needle rolls and I decided to get back to this embroidered bands and to assemble the needle rolls…
…and like always, I have some pictures for you – enjoy! 😀
