Need is the Mother of Invetion

I have just had to buy a new Mobile and as the last one died due to being knocked about, I have decided that to solve the problem I would stitch my self a phone pouch.  I have picked bright colours so I can find it in the dark recesses of my bag and am working it in Needlepoint so it will grow quickly.

This is what I have done so far, trying out the threads most of which are Perle 5 from Primke Designs, while the back ground will be in DMC black perle 5.  Do let me know if you like the colours and stitches I have used.

Needlework Fabrics from Zweigart

This is my first post, I hope to post interesting things for you about the needlework scene in general as well as what we are doing as designers.  Plus hints and things, if you have any suggestions or questions please leave me a message.

We have just heard from our Australian supplier of Zweigart needlework fabrics that Ann Cloth is now only available in White.  Also Congress cloth which is a very fine canvas is no longer being made, there are also other fabrics and colours that have been deleted.  So if you have a particular project in mind I suggest checking with your favorite needlework shop soon to make sure you can still get what you want.
