needle books

In my last post, I was gushing over how focused I finally got, worked on my WIPs and was not starting any new projects. Guess how long that lasted? Not very long, I tell you.

I was planning on working on my granny square quilt yesterday, when I was struck by a sudden need to make needle books. Seriously!!! Had to make some or the world as I know it would end!!!  You know that feeling, right? Out came the supplies (lots of them), since I had no precise idea what I was really doing. And, just so you can picture what I mean, let me show you what our dining / my sewing table looked like.

Even my children were horrified by this tangle of ribbons, fabric, felt, needles, scraps, and whatever else was there. I'm happy to say, though, that after a few hours I had some very cute needle books done.

I used colorful felt for the pages of the books,

this is what they look like inside.

I also made a ribbon loop on top and used bright colored buttons to keep needles and pins safely inside.

I'm glad I got that out of my system (for now, anyway), the dining room is presentable again and I'll be able to do my planned quilting tonight. I'll let you know how it went.

These little guys are heading to my Etsy store, if you're interested.

Have a wonderful evening, Svetlana.
