This was made for a swap and it looks like she liked it!  I am loving this needlebook swap, so much creativity!  So here is the needlebook I made for my partner:


My first attempt at embroidery.  I've been messing around lately trying some stitches but this would be my first project from pattern to product!


And these are the little clay pins I made to keep the inside cheery!


Forgot to take a pic of the pieced back - it was a slightly wonky log cabin sort of thing.  I was hoping for very wonky but I cut too straight!  Smiley

Oh thanks!  The clay pins were so easy - I made them during a meeting I was phoning in to!  And I am no artist at all but vaguely managed bird shapes...sort of.
