A Few More Roses Have 'Grown' ...

Hello my dear friends,

do you recall my needle books that I made and embellished with seam binding roses?

Well, I just couldn't resist making another one of them. This time using one of my favorite things ... drop cloth. I still had a little bit of my first one left, which is a grayish color and so lovely and I am fortunate to have to almost exact color of seam binding too and both together look just stunning.

And this is it, my newest needle book with seam binding roses. I actually made it a month ago but then totally forgot to share it with all of you.

I called it ' Pretty in Gray'.

Just like before, seam binding roses with glass beads that live in their midst and leaves made from sari silk ribbon ... together a perfect harmony.

This is one of my 'thicker' needle books again that has a quilted center 'page'.

I just love the way the roses 'shine' on the drop cloth. Rustic and delicate go so well together.

I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation today.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by here at Todolwen and visit me. I hope you come back some time again. I already have some new creations that I will be sharing soon.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
