For My Love Of Needle Books ~ Buttons and Old Lace ...

Hello my dear friends,

it started about a month or so ago where I just couldn't stop myself from making a new needle book every few days. So far I have made I think I have made 9 or more of them and I am not thinking of stopping just yet. Drop cloth was of course my go to fabric and together with old lace, buttons and a few other bits and pieces they have become newest creations. Unfortunately it has taken me until now to finally share them all with. And since I have many photos to share, I am sharing each style in a separate post but all of them today so you will have lots to look at. 

And here are the first ones. For these needle books I went with old lace and button as the theme and therefor the are call ...

Subtle colors with a touch of elegance but also a little bit rustic at the same time and just lovely in my eyes, no wonder I can't seem to stop making these. I hope you have enjoyed my newest creations and now to the next style in my next post.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
