So I participated in the needlebook swap and I had so many fun ideas I feel like there are still more I want to make!  Now I'm not a huge owl fan - in fact I am not a bird fan at all.  I can appreciate the cuteness of some of the fabrics out there - but in person I would prefer not to be too close to birds.  (My husband thinks I had some traumatic avian incident the memory of which I have blocked from my childhood)  At any rate this really caught my eye while I was seeking inspiration:

So I made one based on it - very similar.  I figure you need a needlebook for quilting and sewing and then a different one for embroidery, right?  And possibly some more for...pins?  and...other stuff??

I know!  I have been collecting needles from ALL over the house and finally have a place to put them!  I don't know why my husband gets so crabby when he finds needles and pins on the floor.  They are hardly ever facing up.  (Although I did step on one the other night...but now it's in a needlebook!)

That is very cute! I like owls, not love, but like, and this needle book has made my love list  Cheesy
My mom has a similar view on birds to you. She's not afraid, but would prefer to not be near them.

Ugh, I stepped on a needle the other day-- and it wasn't facing up. Not fun.

I think I prefer your version, honestly. Great work. It might be fun to do all sorts of winged things like that. Might have to borrow the idea since I'm dabbling with making a Kobo kozy (Kobo is like a Kindle).

I had a swap partner that wisted your owl needle book. So here is my version. I really wanted to keep it for myself!
