New Needle Books ...

 Hello my dear friends,

it's been a while again hasn't it ? There has been all sorts going on here these past months but I have still managed to keep my mind and hands busy at times which is so needed.

As many of you know, I LOVE to sew by hand! Hand sewing is so calming and very rewarding to me. You also know that I just love to work with drop cloth and I love to crochet. With that in mind I recently used my favorite drop cloths as the base for my newest needle books... all 8 of them. Together with old lace and tatting, my crocheted little flowers that I hand dye, hand dyed cotton batting and seam binding, I created some lovely pieces and that is what I am sharing with you today. I had planned to post them earlier today but not everything always works out as we want it too, does it!

 But here they are!

Firstly my "Butter Cups" needle books.

I have always had a thing for butter cups, even as a kid. I thought the were the prettiest things that could grow and when thinking of using them in my newest creations, I was so happy and excited about it.






Onto the next needle books... these are my "Hues Of Blue" needle books.

I couldn't resist dying some of my little flowers in subtle shades of blue and I am happy I did, and I love the way they have turned out.






I am beyond happy with all of my little drop cloth needle books and I hope you have enjoyed them too. Most of them are now listed for sale in my Etsy shop because one or two have been already spoken for so why not head over and see what is still available.

Thank you for stopping by and seeing what I have been up to lately.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.
