Birthdaygift for Irene

I visited my friend Irene today with a little birthdaygift I made for her yesterday. I forgot to take a photo of it before giving it to her, so these two photos I took with my mobilephone is so bad. But you get an idea :)

I made her my version of Cinderberry Stitches Me and My Shadow threadholder. I had a finished stitchery in my box and chose to decorate the front with this one.

And chose a light fabric for the pockets inside it.

I do not call it a threadholder, but a projectholder. Because it is so nice to bring a stitchery or other projects in it. One pocket for the stitchery and the other one for the scissor and stitcheryframe. I know I will make more of these. I have made a few changes from the pattern, and it is fast and easy to sew.

Saying for today:

True friends are the people
who brighten your smile
everytime your with them
