Felt Embroidery, July Larkspur and Chickadee

 
Some felt needlebooks I've been working on this week. I really like embroidering on felt.  The floss and stitches show up so nicely on the felt fabric and it's easy to work with.  Felt comes in great colors too.  

 
A bit of progress on my July Larkspur cross stitch design.  The design has some French knots and straight stitching to vary the design a bit.  I like to add different types of stitches to designs.  I'm looking forward to when it's finished so I can make a new needlebook out of it with some nice purple and lavender fabrics.

 
I finished my little chickadee into a zip pouch.  I was excited to put a row of patchwork squares on the front, but it ended up on the bottom after I added my gusset.  I should have put the patchwork strip above the plain strip.   Not great planning, but will definitely remember the next time I try to do that :)   Hope you have a nice weekend.  Sunny and spring-like here, but wishing for rainy snow or winter weather at all would be nice.
