Sampler House Exchange on LEG

After a very long wait, my exchange finally made it's journey after crossing continents and oceans. In my previous post, I received from Laurence in Switzerland and I am sending to Sue McLaughlin in PA. This has been a great experience doing sampler house as I am partial to houses.....

As you can see below, I have finished it into a needlebook with 2 pages. Credit goes to Merry Cox as I used her finishing technique in doing up mine.


The front of the needlebook. The ribbon is ran under the stitched fabric and tied a bow at the end of the booklet.


The rear view. The stitching are then tacked to the plaid fabric which is similar to a fabric we called 'pelikat' used as a sarong for the men.


The inside view of the book. I included 2 stickpins to be used as fabric counter/marker.
Hope you liked it SuePA :)
