Chatelaine's Stitching Leporello

Well here it is, Stitching Leporello, completely finished :) This is definately the most technical piece of finishing I've ever done, and very time consuming. Even though it was lots of fun, I'm very happy to finally have it made up.

When uploading photos I got them a bit muddled up. This is the inside laid open.

and the scissor pocket and thread keeper


my thanks to Wendy who gave me the lovely dark blue silk fabric :)

It is absolutely gorgeous and your pictures are stunning...even then I bet they don't do it the justise of what it will be like IRL, I have some of your stitching so *know* this will be amazing.
