We have stitched many wonderful things from this book. Blackbird designs makes us smile. This needlebook and pincushion came from the book "A Stitcher's Journey" and are stitched in the colors that Alma intended. Carolyn did the finish work and the results we couldn't be happier with. We used french ribbons -the tie is crushed velvet. Who wouldn't want to have this in their sewing collection?
