A new Needle Keep made during FNSI

Last night was the first Friday sewing night for FNSI for 2015. I joined many other blogging friends to a relaxing night of sewing.
I have a large hexagon needle keep-- it is looking a little old and I have many needles in it all the time. I decided that I needed a small, new needle keep and it will just hold the needles I need for the project I am working on at the time.


 

So last night I started on this project, and completed it today.
 
Appliqued and embroidered hexagon
 
 
With the border and some bushes added
 

With a Sheep button?

Or a birdhouse button?

Or a bird sitting on the fence?
 
Or why not a kangaroo-- after all we are in the country.
 
I am happy with the finished product and I chose the sheep yet again. I must say the sheep is still my favourite button.
 
Thank you Wendy, for hosting another FNSI.
 
Have an enjoyable weekend.
 
Cheers,
Yvonne
