Needlebook swap

Here is the needlebook that I sent to Dee Fowler in Laurie Jackson's (Button Floozies) Springtime Needlebook swap.





And here is the Needlebook that was sent to me by Wendy Wirth
She sent me some great buttons along with it and it was wrapped up in this darling embroidered dishtowel.  I love it! 

 Her Needlebook was completely handstitched.  I love the lace doily and crocheted lace.
.....and then upon opening it, I found these wonderful brooches and a stickpin.  thanks so much to Wendy!

Each needlebook is sew special. The addition of buttons and sewing themed charms is divine. Blissful swap...

I'm glad you liked it. I never use a sewing machine (I actually don't even have one). I love the look of hand sewing.
I really like the striped fabric you used on yours. Very cute.
I'm still waiting for mine to arrive in the mail.

What darling needle books- both so different but equally lovely!

Love those darling pin cushions in the last post too! The cupcake one is just so precious!

Looking forward to joining some swaps some day now that I have a little space to create in and can find my things now!

Michele,
I so love the needle book you created for your swap partner.
I was thinking of joining in on that swap way back but did not think I could create one worthy.
Have a great week.

Oh, I love the one you made her -- with the little dangling thimble! And I love the one you received, with the purple and the doilies! Great swap!
