Needlebook Exchange~

I have received my TTE needlebook exchange from Sharon this week. Look at this gorgeous little thing she made for me!!! I love the orange and green colors!!! Totally fit for this fall season~ The details on this needlebook are so brilliant as well, with matching buttons, ribbons and a silky inside fabric!! She also included some beautiful threads and ribbons~ Thank you soooo much, Sharon~


As for the one I made for her, I’ve used the design from Plum Street Samplers “Quaker Calendar V” for the cover. I have to say my needlebook was not as near exquisite as the one Sharon made, but I had a lot of fun making it, and I hope she would enjoy it as much as I did with hers. Boy!! I have so much more to learn!!


Pattern: Plum Street Samplers “Quaker Calendar V”
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 32ct Belgium linen
Size: 3.5" x 3"
Finishing Date: 10-26-2009

Thank you for your suggestions on my BOAF Friendship Sampler!! I took your advice and use one thread over two on this one, and it does look pretty nice~ Your friendship is truly a very important part of my life!!!
