Every needlebook is so unique, and they are all stellar!!!

I want all of them, please. =D

The wicked needlebook with Elpheba is AMAZING!!! I love how the green is layered on top of the black, making Elpheba inset, rather than popping off. It's almost like a reverse applique!

The quilted needlebook that wulf made, and the giraffe one by fluttermuffin - My vocabulary doesn't contain the adjectives to describe how fantastic I think they are. The detailing and embroidering on both of them are so professional looking. Quilting and embroidering are both crafts I want to learn.

I love the needlebook Lille made too! The button closure is really smart! (I tried to do that too, but I accidentally sewed them wrong, and when I flipped my needlebook inside out, the closure was on the inside!) The 4 squares on the cover remind me of my childhood at recess when everybody would get together and play 4-square.

Superb needlebooks everybody!

Really great work everyone Smiley

noushi; I'm glad you liked it! I'm a bit sad though that the extra seemed to have disappeared during the long trip from DK to USA...

My package arrived already last week, but I was out of town and unable to pick it up before today. It was worth the wait though! Cheesy She went with pink which is my favorite color and added in an extra mason jar/pincushion/awesome thing which was filled with more pink buttons than I've seen in one place before. And the buttonhead pins. Don't even get me started on the buttonhead pins!


Thank you so much noushi! How did you know I needed a pincushion? How did you know I needed that pincushion?!

Great patchwork, Noushi! I love how tidy and smooth it is - very different from mine and beautifully done! The button jar pincushion is a great idea - I've seen pint jar ones, but those low, flat jelly jars seem much more practical as pincushions. I think I have an empty one just waiting for it!

Received from Seneris this morning!



She sent this Steampunk-themed needlebook made of soft, brown leather with a gear-pattern stamped into it.



Inside, there's a generous pocket to hold scissors, and four 'pages' of a lovely brown wool twill.



I'd asked for some place to store bits of embroidery thread, and her solution was these gears to loop them onto. I think this will work very well!



We'd agreed to include a few extras, and I got spoiled a bit. Seneris sent not only these great pieces of scrapbooking paper, but a second small needlebook, made like a paper matchbook. Very cool!

Thanks so much for these, Seneris! It's been fun swapping with you.

Below is my super cute fox needlebook from Thimbles71!!! I love little woodland animals.



The needlebook has a snap closure, which is perfect, because I have a tendency to bend my books and set in creases. This little closure will help me keep my needlebook wrinkle free!



Thank you bunches and bunches, Thimbles! I'm going to take this little guy with me everywhere for my little sewing projects! He's too cute! =D I think I might try to make a whole set of things with him on it. o:

I received from gingerpeachy while I was away on vacation.  Such a nice surprise to come home to!
I love the colors, they coordinate perfectly with my embroidery case!  The embroidery is one of my favorites!  And I already have a WIP to add those pink buttons to!  

Thanks again for a fun swap!
