Finished the needle book.

Finished up my needle book. Did lots of French knots along the lace. And finished the edges with button hole stitch.

 


Needle n thread showed how to make these tiny button hole stitch leaves a couple weeks ago.  Hers looks better than mine does.     http://www.needlenthread.com/2013/09/stitch-fun-buttonhole-stitch-leaves.html



"Needles" is made with outline stitch.



I put 4 pages inside.  The finished size is 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches.


I'm keeping this one for myself - but you will see some in my Etsy shop soon.

And then I started on one with green lace.



Also went shopping today with my friend Christine.  Picked up some felt, and a little bit of linen. Joanne Fabrics is always fun to just wonder about in. We also went to Ben Franklin crafts store - another great place to wonder about. 

Thank you for dropping by
Smiles to you.
