My crazy patchwork round robin needlecase has eventually returned home. I made the background with an assortment of mainly silk scraps, including a small piece of silk velvet ribbon that has a treasured place in my stash. Still have a little left, I am glad to say! Now I have to set to and actually turn this piece of work into a needlecase cover.
Thanks to all my friends on sourhterncross crazies who did the work on this crazy patch base.
