Leporello Finish

I can't believe I have finished my Chatelaine (c) Leporello. It was an online class over a year ago and I have only just finished it. I really love this piece and it was great fun to put together. I decided to go with my own hand dyed linen and I also used a different Silk Dupion and ribbon. The silk ribbon I used is Thread Gatherer "Wild Violets". I hand dyed the piece of felt for the needles, as I thought the white looked too stark against everything else. I also decided to add some silk dupion between the "pages".....Just to finish it off nicely. The thread rings are finished off with the wild violets aswell.
