“Stitching Under the Oaks” Needlepocket was created to convey that sense of loving cameraderie 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. The flamingo charms are a whimsical touch. You will find many additional specialty stitches and tidbits on both the front and the BACK of this pocket.
