Cross Stitch Needle Case

 I've been so inspired by the beautiful cross stitch being done by Shoshi and Lunch Lady Jan that I decided to give it a go.  I've attempted a small needle case, which is intended as a gift despite the inside being a bit of a bodge job!  I kept trimming up the wonky felt pages and they kept getting smaller and smaller - so I edged them in running stitch to make them look like they should be like that!
I copied the pattern from a design on Pinterest and tweaked it a little while working it - a good tip is to tweak it first on paper as it saves a lot of unpicking!

Autumn Bobbins

 This is my desk about 10 minutes ago!  
I'm struggling to be productive and the only thing on it is one freshly painted bobbin.  I have three others hanging in the window with the varnish drying and that is the sum total of my creativity recently. I think it's a case of the lock down doldrums!
