Needle Book received

Renee let me know that she had received the Needle Book I "angel" stitched for her for the Tiny Treasures Exchange group.
It's stitched over 1 on 28 count natural colored linen and trimmed with some lace I had in my stash.  Renee loves red, and I love the traditional red and white on natural linen, so the color choice was easy.  It also pays tribute to my love for abcedaires.

The needle pages are also linen, and I satin stitched and fringed the edges.  The lining is a cotton white on white that I had in my stash.  It ties closed with 1/4 inch white ribbon.

Needle Books are addictive - I've one more that I angel stitched for another TTE member to show you once she receives it.

Thanks for visiting today.
