needle books + a giveaway

I woke up way too early on Saturday morning, and while everyone else was still asleep, I simply had to start cutting 1.5" squares to make a new needle book. Mind you, I did not need a needle book, I just needed to make one. Please tell me this happens to you, also???


I used Amy's wonderful tutorial and before I knew it I had one adorable needle book all finished. 

 
I even added a pocket to keep embroidery scissors in. Isn't this Heather Ross little froggy the sweetest?


I then attached  a sweet strawberry button and I was able to sip my morning coffee while admiring my new needle book (yes, all this sewing happened before my kids even woke up).


And then, before I knew what was going on, I whipped up one more needle book. See? I just could not stop at one :)


Sooo, that got me thinking. Would you like to win this second needle book (scissors not included)?


Here's how it works. Please leave a comment letting me know what kind of sewist you are. Are you impulsive and have a hard time concentrating on one project only, like I am, or are you very methodical and stick to your to do list no matter what?

The giveaway is open to everyone, domestic as well as international entries welcome. The giveaway is now closed, thank  you.

One entry per person, please. Mr. Random and I will choose the winner on Tuesday (8/6) evening.

Thanks so much for reading. Svetlana

  1. What a lovely needle book - I think that I am a juggling sewist - usually lots of little projects and one big one on the go. I am always finding new inspiration then have to make something using new fabric or techniques straight away. thanks for the chance.

  2. Chaotic is the only way I can describe my own sewing organisation. I must tell you that my daughter identified Pinky Pie from the unfinished picture in your last post... so it must be progressing to schedule!

  3. Wow, all that done before coffee?? They are so cute, I've been meaning to make a needle book. I am a totally impulsive with my sewing, and usually have multiple projects going at once. I read like that also, several books at once.

  4. So cute! I stick to my list but the list keeps growing!;p

  5. So gorgeous! I'm a mix of methodical and impulsive - I like to have several projects in the works at once, but I can be focussed when I need to. I totally relate to the need to sometimes just have a fun project that you can whip up in no time - especially when other things are more in the slow burn category! Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. This is adorable. I would love a needlebook and have a feeling I may never get around to making one. I am methodical in what I am working on at the moment yet impulsive with starting too many projects before finishing any! Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  7. LOL - I used to be methodical, but I fell off the bandwagon. 2013 was supposed to be my non-impulsive year, getting back onto my crafting schedule, but I can't resist these flickr swaps!!

  8. Your needle books are too cute! I have yet to make one so I thik I'll try Amy's tutorial as well. I'm not sure what I'd call myself actually, hehe. I do several BOM's each month and over the last few months have fallen behind due to "stuff". So I know I don't qualify as a one project gal, hehe.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

  9. I get really into something for a day or two and then kind of fizzle out. My WIP pile is staggering...

    ReplyDelete
  10. So adorable! I can stick to a plan if I have a looming deadline, but mostly I am all over the place!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Adorable needle books! I'm a little scattered on my projects. I usually have one main project going, and will knock out a few smaller things along the way.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm a little of both really. Usually I go one project at a time, but then there are those moments not unlike what you experienced today. I just love this needle book, Svetlana!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would love to win something made by you. I love to start new projects! Eventually I finish them though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Those are adorable! I'm a very impulsive sewerer, so that's why I love keeping my stash full. I hardly ever plan ahead enough to have time to shop for project-specific fabric. :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi Svetlana! I love your little needle books...very sweet. I'd have to say I'm impulsive and start and work on things on a whim and as I want. I do get things done, though, especially if it's a baby quilt for a shower or a gift for a friend. Nothing more fun than starting a new, creative project :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love your little needle books, especially the little pockets for scissors! I am a very impulsive sewer and always have loads of unfinished projects hanging around. I have to force myself to finish stuff sometimes before I start some other random impulsive idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love your needle book sew much I'm going to make one with my Heather Ross fabric too!
    I have made one of these before and it is such a fun little project!
    I'm always starting new projects before finishing up ... there's just so many things to make!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi Svetlana! Your needle books are adorable! :) Well, I guess I'm both kinds of sewist. I decide impulsively but than I stick with the project. I can't start more of them otherwise I would never finish anything.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi Svetlana! Your needle book is adorable and I was ready to go to make one, but because you are so sweet to share the other one, I'll wait if I'm lucky. That's so beautiful and the pocket for scissors is perfect!
    I'm impulsive - I can go at midnight to make something if it just came to my mind. I finish quite well my projects but there has to be at least few going on to have something to sew by machine, to quilt, to cut and always so much to plan. x Teje

  20. I love the needle books! Hmm I like to quilt, but that can take a while, so I need those quick impulsive projects in between.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Those are soooo cute. I'm sort of both I guess... I'm easily distracted and often start new projects on a whim, but it also really, really bothersome when something has been hanging around too long unfinished...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I will start so many new projects when I should be finishing something off. Like you, sometimes I just need to make something!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love the needle book, I simply must make one. Impulsive, distracted, obsessive... doesn't sound like very attractive qualities in a quilter but at least I can admit it about myself.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is just so cute, I sure hope I am the winner. I have many many projects on the go and keep thinking of new ones to make too. There is no way I could just make one at a time.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lovely needle book. My kids get up far too early for me to be sewing before they surface! I usually have many projects on the go as I need variety and sometimes I too have to make something just because!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Those needle books are so cute! I have a to do list, but don't stick to it very well, so am impulsive in that way. However, one I've started a project, I like to see it through to the end before starting something else. :-) xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. How cute is it?? absolutely lovable, Svetlana!
    Now abt yt question, i've became more of an impulsive sewist fr the last few months.The problem is that I get bored very easily, and sticking to a big project for months, doesn't suit me any longer. So, keeping several projects on the table it´s what best fits me. I can easily switch onto another, if the actual one is boring me enough. xx

    ReplyDelete
  28. How fun! I have woken up before my kids a couple of times to have some quiet sewing time and it is so nice and peaceful :) I am a pretty methodical sewing and tend to only have one project at a time. However I have been working on some projects with firm deadlines lately and that makes me want to start random projects. It's good that there are little projects that can be creative outlets because my house gets crazy messy when I try to work on more than one quilt at a time!

    ReplyDelete
  29. How lovely! Beside tons of pin cushions, it's just a musthave :)
    Concerning the unfinished projekts and the impulse to sew
    something completely different, I don't worry. There's no
    "quilting police" :)

  30. Wow, they are lovely!!!
    I understand you, I'm also impulsive. I think "kids need t-shirts" and I when take my fabrics I suddenly find myself sewing shorts, or a bag, or... who knows! And I love to sew this way!
    Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love the needle book.
    I work best to a deadline, the shorter the better!! If I know that I have too much time I usually get sidetracked and start something else!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love the needle books, so cute! I have lists of things I want to make/need to finish but then I get distracted by something new or not on the list for today and have to do that instead. Having lots of WIPs keeps the joy in crafting for me because there is usually always at least one thing I feel inspired to spend some time on (even if it doesn't match the to-do list!).

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am a type of person that gets really excited about a project then like a magpie, "What's that over there!" I am onto the next project.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Very cute needle book. ha..ha...had to laugh as I am really an impulsive quilter - bit like Dory in Finding Nemo - ha...all over the place But I have so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I suppose I am a little of both! Some days I am very focused on finishing tasks but then a new idea will spark and its hard to resist! Your needle books are very cute! I'd love one to come and live with me!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Your needle books are super sweet and hats off to you getting them made before everyones day got started :)
    I am by nature an impulsing everything-er! I have however learned my scattergun approach means things will take their sweet time to get finished so if I'm on a deadline I have to be ruthless and methodical!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Fab needlebooks!
    I always have lots of projects on the go - in fact I prefer starting things to finishing!

    ReplyDelete
  38. This a fabulous needlebook! Thanks for offering!
    I am the rather methodical one, but doing several projects at a time, I have tiny four patches and a postage stamp quilt as leaders and enders, all my other projects save very large quilts I start and finish.

    ReplyDelete
  39. so pretty! I am pretty methodical and try to work on just one project at a time!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I need a needle book. If I don't win this one, I must make one for myself. I am currently on vacation and I brought one needle with me, but it is MIA. Soooooo all progress on my EPP has halted until I can purchase another needle. UGH! I'm a spontaneous quilter. I will sew when the urge hits...sometimes a new project, sometimes I will stick with a work in progress. However, judging from my stack of UFOs, it would appear that I will often no see things through...Must work on that!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am terrible for finishing a quilt top and then moving on to the next thing so I have far too many half finished projects! I love your needlebook - I am keeping my fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've been doing a lot of early morning sewing lately to work on all my projects!

    ReplyDelete
  43. These are so pretty.
    I can't just have one project on the go...I have the brain of a grasshopper.

    ReplyDelete
  44. How cute. You can never have too many needle books but I'd love to win and take one off your hands. I'm like you, very impulsive and often wake up at 4.30am to get a couple of hours undisturbed sewing in before everyone else wakes up. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love your little needlebook, thank you for the chance to win.
    I am a mix of methodical and little bit crazy ...

    ReplyDelete
  46. What beautiful needlebooks! I can't believe you made it so quickly!
    I am impulsive with my sewing at times and start too many new projects but I love it so that makes it okay.

    ReplyDelete
  47. So cute! I usually stick to my list but only half finish something and then start on something else. Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would probably be less methodical if I could sew when I got up early in the morning. I'm afraid I'll wake the rest of the house so I suppress the urges! Those needle books are so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sooooo cute! I am a spur of the moment sewer for sure. I also like to wake early before the kids and try to work fast and quiet :) thanks for the chance to win!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have been meaning to make myself a needle book for my handsewing bag but now that I have got a knitting bag, I have realised I need one for that bag too( I've lost one pair of scissors already) so if I am the lucky one, you will be happy to know it will be put to use straight away😊

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love your little needle books! I really wish I was organized and could stick to one project at a time, but I just have so many ideas and there is so much beautiful fabric...I'm quite chaotic with my projects.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I am an impulsive sewer. I have many sewing and a couple embroidery projects going right now. I love your needle books!

    ReplyDelete
  53. The needle books are adorable! I'm amazed you squeezed them in before any little ones got up! I tend to stick to one project at a time. Sometimes I seem to stall out if I'm working on a big project... but I feel like I can't start anything else until said project is done... so I'm working on "giving myself permission" to start other little projects in the mean time. I've found recently that if I whip up a real quick instant gratification project I will be able to hop easily back into the big project at hand!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Very impulsive! I have ten projects in the works now!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have several projects going at once, but I generally limit myself to no more than five. Once I reach five, I deny myself the privilege of starting a new one until I knock out at least three of the existing projects. I know it sounds a little crazy, but I have found that if I have too many projects going on, I begin to feel a little anxious about the situation. Finishing a project is so satisfying!

    ReplyDelete
  56. How I wish I were a "stick-to-it" person....maybe then, something would get accomplished. Your blog puts me to shame! Just lovely needle books as are the other wonderful creations!

    ReplyDelete
  57. The needle books are so cute! Would love to win one of them. Unfortunately, I have many projects going at one time. Sometimes I actually finish one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Adorable needle books and I'm so impressed how quickly you made these! Another thing to add to my long list of projects. I used to complete a project at a time but right now I have 2 quilts, 2 bags and a gift for a friend all going at once.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Um, yeah, it's adorable! I am impulsive. Unfortunately I am better at shopping for and starting projects then at finishing them. Deadlines really help me, like a baby shower or an online contest.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Cute needle book! I've been meaning to make one of those:) I am a multiple projects going at once kind of girl, but there is nothing like a good deadline to get me super focused to finish up a project.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I have Crafter's ADD. I always have multiple projects going in various stages of completion. :) I love your needle books!

    ReplyDelete
  62. How lovely your needlebook Svetlana,
    I like the colours and the dessin, your finish is great!

    If it is possible to join into your giveaway, because I am living in Bavaria,
    I would like to do this

    greetings
    Gabriele

    ReplyDelete
  63. These are gorgeous needlebooks! Like you I'm an impulsive sewer. I have trouble finishing projects, unless there is a deadline. So giftbags get finished, but stuff for me is hard to finish :S

    ReplyDelete
  64. oh wow, what a beautiful fabrics you use here!! I don't know what should I call myself, most the time I start something and before finish I already cutting another fabrics for next project unless I have deadline. Lately I love to sew pillow case to giveaway, it's more simple and not take too much time to finish. I love it, and love to see people face when they receive my project :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love the idea for a pocket! I am typically a very list oriented person, but try to make a few exceptions, just not so many I never finish anything! :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I usually interrupt large projects for some quick satisfaction projects. For instance, I love making quilted, zippered pouches for gift bags and I usually have a few on-hand just in case. Unfortunately, the large project never seems as tempting after I take this break!

    ReplyDelete
  67. These little needle books are too adorable! Thank you so much for hosting this give-away! I have to admit...I always have many projects going at the same time...and am usually finishing something because of some sort of deadline! I do love to sew in the morning, however, because the window over my machine looks out over the forest...so beautiful!

    Sweet blessings,
    Laura

  68. What a beautiful needle book. Thanks for the chance to win. I definitely have too many projects going at once.

    ReplyDelete
  69. this needle book is adorable! Up until a month ago, I would have told you that I was a methodical one project at a time girl. But this month i have thrown caution to the wind and have like six projects going on! who knows how long this will go on ;)

    ReplyDelete
  70. So so cute! I'm compulsive ~ I want to make everything I see out there in blog land. Rcoyle at olemiss dot edu.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I have several major projects going on at once and I occasionally take a break to make something small and quick.

    ReplyDelete
  72. lovely little needle book!
    definitely impulsive, or maybe I just get bored easily!
    thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  73. Such cute, cute needlebooks! I too am like you. I always want to make things that I don't need and I always have more than one project going on. I get bored easily so it's nice to have a few projects going on at once. I'm also bad at making for others and not myself. I keep telling myself I need to change that:). Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I tend to be pretty impulsive, but lately I've run out of space to start new projects until I'm finished old ones, so I have to be pretty methodical until I have a couple of stacks of fabric and half-finished blocks out of the way (except I might have to squeeze in a new blouse and some pencil cases for school and some storage baskets . . . ahem). Cute needle book.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I totally have crafter's ADD. I can never stick to one project. I jump from crochet, quilting, embroidery...you name it, I've tried it.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I am an engineer so I am a planning quilter, I have a list of quilts to make and works in progress and rarely leave things unfinished.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I am afraid I go both ways. Some projects I fall in love with and never stop till I am finished. I do have quite a few UFO sitting around.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Wow beautiful! I'm impressed that you can whip these out so quickly! I'm definitely an ADD sewist... So much going on at once... Prob why I only have one finish :p

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm impulsive/ADD but working at finding a workable middle ground! Love your needlebook.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Love your needle books. Right now I am trying to finish my wip's. But I think I am an impulsive sewist.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I too am an impulsive sewist. I leap from one project to another and then back again. There are so many wonderful things to create, I just can't help it! I do finish projects. I just don't work in a straight line!!
    I love your needle books!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I am impulsive like you, but have been trying my best to stay focused on my current project list! Of course that hasn't been very successful :) THanks so much for the chance to win...I've been admiring a lot of cute needle books lately and if I won, I wouldn't have to abandon my current projects to make one myself ;-)

  83. What a cute little giveaway. I'm not too sure what kind of a quilter other than I still consider myself a beginner quilter. I started quilting about a year ago. Have 3 quilts done and finished. I have 3 on the go at the moment, one to be quilted and the other two I'm still working on the quilt top. I think I'm probably impulsive but trying to work on my WIPs.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I am a slow quilter/sewer. Cute needle books. Thank you for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'm pretty methodical, not often having more than one active project at a time. It drives me crazy sometimes because there are times that I feel like I have nothing to work on!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Impulse! When I get a creative idea, I get hopping and I run run run to sewing! And then BAM suddenly I'm in the trough of despair and can't sew a single seam to save my soul. And then SPROING there goes the creativity again! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love your needle books. I need one for my epp projects. I often make things because I need to try them. then I either dream up a recipient or put them in my bin. Then I have gifts ready:)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Wow what a lovely needle book! I would love some of those strawberries in my life! I am a planned seamstress. I usually have a list of projects that I stick to. I have seen too many people with unfinished things and I just don't want that. Plus unfinished projects way me down!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I have a lot of projects going on at once, but I am pretty methodical in working through them. I started a couple of BOMs this year and that adds to the number of WIPs I have going on. Thanks for the chance to win one of your needle books - they are fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Super cute needle books. I wish I was more impulsive with my sewing, but I usually stick to my project list and mostly work on one project at a time.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Your needle books are so adorable! No matter how hard I try to start and finish one project at a time, I always find an excuse to start another and another and another and ...

    ReplyDelete
  92. So cute! I've got about 10 projects going right now..I'd say I'm a distracted sewer. Do a little here a little there. projects do eventually get done. LOL Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I'm a methodical sewer. I like to finish one project before I start on the next. I only have 1 UFO!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Oh yes I a just like you, with man things on the go and then the impulsive urge to suddenly whip up a little unplanned project too!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Generally, I am methodical and stick to my to do list. However, I do tend to set aside my to do list whenever a baby quilt is needed!

    ReplyDelete
  96. the little pocket is so adorable! I do get spurts of ´must do this now´but end up regretting it sometimes, when i then need to improvise too much.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm methodical :-) unless something comes up that takes priority. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Your needle books are so adorable! I like to have several projects on the go, some projects need coming back to after a break! But I like to finish things too so I try and have a balance! Sometimes it's fun to sew something just because ;)

    ReplyDelete
  99. Mostly I go down the list but I have major post project blahs. As I finish I am super excited but then the project is finished and I get stuck before I start again. Am I alone? I need to get back in there and make something cute. Your needlebook definitely inspires me!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I need a needle book, so thanks for the chance to win and the link. I am impulsive too, but I have to be methodical to get projects with deadlines finished on time. Let me tell you, impulsive sewing is much more fun!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Oh! I am so in love with Briar Rose right now! And how cute are your needle books! I guess I am kind of in between the two, I always have one easy and one more complicated project going on. I love the end result of a more complicated quilt pattern, but yet I can't just work on that alone because I love to sew so I always have a more easy no thinking just sewing quilt going on too! This way when I get tired of thinking too much then I can just go work on my other non-thinking easy project and sew my lil heart out :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. I am a procrastinator. I actually have Amy's tutorial printed and ready to go but I have not made the next step! I love that needlebook!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I am a magpie - I see a bright new shiny idea/pattern/fabric stack and start something new, leaving many piles of loved-but-unattended projects along the way!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Hello from Minnesota! I LOVE your little needlebooks. I'm impulsive, so without a firm deadline, I rarely finish a project in a timely manner. Like you, I work in spurts but that means my projects are usually unique and owe special touches to the particular moment they were created.

    ReplyDelete
  105. i must be the last one thing at a time

    ReplyDelete
  106. Oh Svetlana. I think that I know why you HAD to make something ... you've gotten hold of that lovely Briar Rose fabric! I am much the same sewist as yourself. . . hard to stop at one, especially if it is so wonderful! Methodical has never entered my sewing room ...!

    ReplyDelete
  107. So cute! I have impulse issues, I have to admit it. I can never *not* be doing something, but sometimes I have to go entirely off-list and just make something else!

    Thanks for the chance to win :o)

    ReplyDelete
  108. I'm definitely impulsive. I always have numerous projects going at once.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I'm a little bit of both I think. I always have a to-do list but if something strikes my fancy I'm def going to jump on it. Then, promptly back to the to-do list.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I'm impulsive but not nearly as productive as you are.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Oh, Svetlana, get out of here, that's adorable! I'm in it to win it. I am impulsive to start a project. If I think of something I want to do, I go straight to it. But I don't generally jump from one to the next because I don't have enough sewing time to have multiple things going at once. Plus, nearly 100% of my projects are gifts and I never start anything too early, so when I start it, it's gotta get done.

    ReplyDelete
  112. That's so sweet! Love it. I'm a totally impulsive sewist, I hate to have deadlines, I like to flit between projects as the mood takes me.

    ReplyDelete
  113. So adorable! I am a super impulsive sewist. Last time my sister came to visit, I was watching our kids play while my sister packed up to leave for home and I got looking at the shirt my niece was to wear other way home. I decided I needed to recreate it right there on the spot and finished it before my sister and niece left. Never mind that I had 7 other u.f.o.s on my work table!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I like to think of myself as a spontaneous quilter . Ready to try something new, leap into the unknown rather than an A.D.D. quilter with so many W.I.Ps Christian Grey would blush. The needle book is too too cute and I really really need on, no I do not need another project..haha.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I tend to have more than one project in the works at a time..I have some problems cutting into awesome new materials so when I feel brave I try to cut out two.LOVE the needlebook.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I have always admired your adorable needlebooks. I have way more ideas in my head than I could ever make -so I tend to have lots of projects on the go.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Oh that is the cutest and would make a lovely gift! I am pretty methodical, but I really enjoy those impromptu moments!

    ReplyDelete
  118. How cute are those needle books! I'm impulsive....lots of projects going. I need to get them finished though. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  119. So cute! I have one ongoing scrap project, but otherwise I usually stick to one project at a time, and don't move on until it's completed.

    ReplyDelete
  120. So cute. I just love it. I hope I win but if not I'll be adding this to my list of things to sew. Maybe I'll sew two and give one to my daughter who is starting to do some handsewing too. I am an impulsive sewer for sure. I have a difficult time staying on task and finishing projects, especially bigger/longterm projects.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Those are such cute little books! I'm sometimes methodical and others impulsive. I'm very much apatten follower!

    ReplyDelete
  122. That tiny patchwork is so cute! Definitely impulsive sewer - I also enjoy having lots of projects going and I jump from one to the next in the same "session".

  123. I'm absolutely impulsive sewer. I had an idea and the details shape underway. Sometimes a bit slowly... but sooner or later everything is in the right place.
    Thank you for the chance,

  124. I love needle books. I have several that I made and I collect those old advertisement needle books. I just love them! As for sewing projects Im impulsive. Same goes for my knitting and crocheting or any other craft I get involved with. I wasn't always like this. I used to finish a project before I started a new one.

  126. I love to have a lot of projects going on, so I change from one to another. Now I must finish some of them ;)

  127. Your needlebooks are so nice, I would really like to win one. And I also really love your blog. I discovered it while breastfeeding my little daughter, in the early weeks she needed about 45 minutes to be full so I had loads of time for readin.
    I am kind of an impulsive sewer. I have loads of ideas and plans of projects, I also have chosen fabric for them. But then everything slows down after inventing. But I do also have a project list, which is always changed after I have sewn something not on the list. ;-)

  128. I like to say I am methodical but I am not. when I get an idea in my head I have to do it.... including now making a needle book like this.....

  129. I am trying to be better with my projects but for every finish I have it seems I start at least two more! Sometimes inspiration sets in and there is no stopping me!

  133. I'm guilty of trying to do what everyone else is doing and find it very hard to say no to starting a new project or joining a new swap. Linhs4real@aol.com

  134. I can't stick with my list, EVER. Be it sewing, knitting or shopping! The needle books are gorgeous. I need to make me one as well! (see, that's going to be started pretty soon, no doubt).

  135. I'm JUST like you. Sometimes I have a great compulsion to make a fast little project and usually in multiples. The most recent one is little pincushions, made with a Crazy Mom Quilts tute. I have already made 6 and I'm sure I'll make more. So cute!
    I love the little pocket in your needle book. I might have to make that one next.

  137. I am impulsive and have a hard time concentrating on one project. If it is an important project and I HAVE to concentrate on it, my sewjo disappears and I have to force myself to keep going:)

  138. I usually have at least 4 projects on the go... with the one that needs to be finished yesterday getting worked on most, but quick projects being completed in between to mix things up. My to do list stretches a full A4 page but new "urgent" projects keep me from really making headway... tell me I'm not alone here :-)

  139. What a sweet needlebook! I wish I could say that I'm a methodical sewist but in truth, I try to keep my WIPs down to a small enough list that I don't feel overwhelmed. I'm trying to keep it to where I have one applique project, one machine pieced project, one hand quilting, etc. Trying is the operative word. ;)

  140. I have a hard time staying focused on one project at a time unless I have a deadline. I have always been this way, unfortunately! It can make for a messy craft room! Love the needlebooks. I have been wanting to make one for a while.

  141. Don't really have a to do list, but I try not to have too many projects going at one time -makes it hard to ever finish them.
    Thanks, Peggy

  144. I sew whatever I can get my hands on when my kiddos will let me, have way to many ufos and to-do's in my sewing room!

    ReplyDelete
  145. I sew what I am in the mood for. And thankfully some of it gets finished :)

  146. What a sweet needle book! The pocket is a fantastic addition to these. And the strawberry button is the cutest!

    I used to be impulsive but lately I've been more focused and getting things done.

  147. Impulsive of course... So you know that here sit some ufos waiting for them to be finished? Yes, you do. :)
