A Mon Ami Pierre Needlebook

There's not been a lot of stitching or finishing going on here since Colin arrived home. I've not spent a lot of time on the computer either, wanting to make the most of having him home, before he is off again for another 6 weeks towards the end of the month. I have managed at last though to finish putting together this needlebook. I had started making it up a month or so ago so it feels like it's been hanging around forever!

The design is another A Mon Ami Pierre freebie which can be downloaded from here. I've stitched it 1 over 2 on 40ct Light Espresso R & R Linen with DMC 779 and made a matching tasseled scissor fob. The fabric for finishing is from Blackbird Designs Harvest Home.

Hello, Carol!
It is surely a very beautiful needlebook. It mixes needlebook and pinkeeper, what makes it very useful. "A Mon Ami Pierre"'s pattern is exquisit and I just loved the colors you've picked.

Sorry if I am being rude or inopportune, but, please, could you tell me where you have found the finishing technic for mixing needlebook and pinkeeper in just one piece? And I took a look at your blog and falled in love for a little angel in a pincushion that you said is a freebie by Ariane Jean Pierre. Where could I find here patterns? I thank you in advance and appologize in case of being annoying.
