Thread Holder Exchange

I took part in Beckys Thread Holder Exchange my partner was Raffaella unfortunately she does not have a blog, I was becoming worried that it had got lost in the post as it has taken 3 weeks to get to the USA.

I stitched this on 28 count linen band which I find is great for making Thread Holders the pattern is from LHN chart No 78 "Needle and Thread", I have used suggested threads.
We have been away to the Coast again and I have been on another bead workshop this time we had a Guest Teacher Jenny had arranged for Laura Macabe to teach us a class as she was over in the UK from the States doing a Teaching Tour photos to follow!!!
