Needle Book

A lovely woman that we know from church recently took the time to show Mum and I a new skill. One that we have always wanted to learn and are very excited.  I am really hoping we can practice it more soon so we can show you how bad we are at it! Well me- I think Mom is actually going to be really good at it. We just both have other projects we are in the process of finishing up so we can have time for this one. 
But regardless of how slow we are at working on the skill I wanted to make a thank you gift. We really appreciate people giving their time up to show us things.  


 While we were visiting she mentioned her abundance of needles all scattered about. And Mom mentioned a needle book to her and she seemed interested, so I decided a needle book would be a useful gift. I find it so hard to make and give people things- I want them to be useful for the person. Not something they are going to be trying to figure out what on earth they will do with. Especially when you don't know them that well. 


I am beyond happy with the way it turned out. I made it differently then my last ones (make me want to make myself another one!) 
It's larger- about 6.5 x 4 inches and I added a button closure. 

 This one has felt pages with the most common needles embroidered and attached at the top of each page.
