WIPW - Taking Off

The line up for this week's Work In Progress Wednesday is:

*something taking off
*something stepping up
*something creeping up
*something being locked up

Swedish Wool Embroidery Conveyor Belt Needle Case
I assembled the three needle cases - conveyor belt style. Before I remembered to take out my camera, one had already taken off on an air mail journey to Sweden.
Here are the remaining two, though:

Pile 'em On
This week the pulled work was these green Diagonal Satin Filling Stitches that are stepping up inside a flame. Or are they leading downwards?

 In the circle something is creeping up - they are pink Drizzle stitches (TAST #35).

TASTy Beads Galore
All the 17 beaded TAST stitches have now been used, so I am locking up this beaded panel, with the final TAST #131 Beaded Lock Stitch.

I will need to make a frame or mount the piece on board. This is what it looks like at the moment, and it will remain locked up until I have decided what to do. A new UFO?

Actually all my projects will become UFOs for a couple of weeks. I will be unable to sew, blog and read blogs on a regular basis, so please forgive me for not replying to any comments, nor visiting others'  blogs.
I hope to be back to normal routines some time in April.

Your needlecases are very pretty. I think you could use the same pattern for a keycase in different materials. Thanks vor sharing a photo of your completed bead gallore, it's just gorgous. In time it sill tell you what it wants to be. Take care!

Hi Carin! Your needle cases are so beautiful! I treasure mine! I hope you are doing good things while you aren't able to sew, blog or read blogs!

The needlecases are so lovely and I like the different 'pulls'. The pulled work patterns make such a difference to the same cloth. You inspire me and when I find time I will try my hand at this work.
The pile em on is mounting for sure.
and the little glimpses of the beaded TAST stitching has been intriguing but seeing the whole it is gorgeous. A delight for anyone's eyes.

Beautiful needle cases. Have not heard about Swedish wool embroidery. Does it use the same 2 ply wool as in crewel work? So much to learn...
