“Stitching Under the Oaks” Needlepocket was created to convey that sense of loving camaraderie we feel as we stitch together. It is stitched on a light blue cashel linen with lovely silk flosses, to reflect the beautiful blue skies and bright colours of Florida, a tropical paradise where I’ve taught some special students. I really enjoyed including some different motifs of the area, including tables with stitchers sitting under the moss laden live Oak Trees, a lovely Hardanger Heart with a Blanket Stitched flower in the center, palm trees, the lake, pink roses, and even two wee Florida alligators to keep those pesky stitching errors at bay! You will find many additional specialty stitches and tidbits on both the front and the back of this pocket, including some drawn thread work, and some silk ribbon work to have fun with! There is an area at the lower front of the pocket to include your name and date to personalize your pocket (you can even accommodate a longer name than shown, if necessary). Be prepared to learn some new techniques and have some fun stitching the many Cross Stitched areas. To finish, instructions to create the pocket are at the back of this leaflet. The accompanying pinkeep and scissors case will also surely capture your hearts! I hope you will take this set to future retreats where we truly are drawn together in friendship as we stitch! - Thea
