The cat sat on the mat

I was rummaging through my mothers' work box, looking for some elastic. I was so surprised to find this lurking in the bottom of the drawer. I had no idea she had kept it, I made it , at school, when I was 8 years old. I can still remember stitching the blanket stitch around the outside, as I was the only pupil who could do it, and so helped the teacher show others.
I have been playing with my embellisher today and have had great time, will share the results with you later.

Your needlecase is so sweet - who could let it go? My Mum still has the binca embroidered mat I made at school at around the same age, on her dressing table!
