Summer Lavender Needle Books ...

Hello my dear friends,

it's been a little while again since I have shared anything with all of you here on Todolwen. Again I have been busy learning a little something new and using it to create something. I was inspired by the lavender in our garden that is now blooming so lovely and that made me want to make it bloom on my newest needle books too. I love french know but this time I wanted to use beautiful glass beads from Europe to make the sweet smelling flowers and that is what I have done and that is what I am sharing with all of you today. 

And here are my three newest beauties ...

... my "Summer Lavender" needle books.

~ No. 1 ~

~ No.2 ~

... and last but not least ...

~ No.3 ~

I am so pleased with my newest little needle keeps and I hope you have enjoyed them as well. They are now listed for sale in my Etsy shop.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a few new pincushions I made a little while ago.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by here at Todolwen and I hope you have enjoyed your short stay and what I have created.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Karen: They are lovely.


  2. Yes, Karen, they are indeed lovely! I recently "found" you and have been enjoying all your posts. I am a crafter (mostly quilting now) and have never tried anything this artistic. You have inspired me ... I have my mothers doilies, embroidered , junk jewellry, etc, all of which is now about 50 years old. It is time to make some "lovelies" and give them to those who still remember her. Thank you so much!
