Historic Stitches - Acorn Harvest Threadkeep

I had a few comments on my last post asking about one of the pieces in my header picture, Autumn Harvest Threadkeep by Historic Stitches.  I stitched it back in 2004 and looking back through my blog I realise that I never got round to posting about it.  So I've dug back through my photos and here are some close up photos.

The front:



Back:
Acorn Harvest Thread Keeper - Back

And inside,  the acorn fabric and the Liberty Hill thread keep came with the kit

Somewhere in the depths of my stash I have a companion piece - Acorn Harvest First Stitch Finders that I really must dig out and stitch!

I have both of these lovely Historic Stitches pieces too Karoline but long ago I dug out the LH accessories and put them to use - Never have gotten around to the stitching part. Your threadkeep is wonderful - thanks for showing the close up shots. Melody

I'm sorry to say that I too have this design and have never stitched it. The only thing I've made use of is the threadkeep. Good for you stitching it, very nice result.
