Last month I participated in a personal exchange with my stitching twin, Carol. We both have the same birth month so we decided to exchange during that month. Carol spoiled me with a beautifully stitched sewing box. It is absolutely gorgeous and the pictures do NOT do it justice. It is a Blackbird design. Inside the box were wonderful stitching necessities. A mother of pearl floss winder, beautiful threads and thread rings along with the cutest pair of scissors. All of that was wrapped in two awesome project pouches. One is a snap pouch and the other is a zippered project bag in matching fabrics. Carol, thank you! You are incredibly talented.
Below are pictures of the needlebook I made for Carol. She and I both love birds and I couldn't resist stitching this for her. I decided to make it into a needlebook. I also enclosed some of my beaded pins in the needlebook. Other things in her birthday package included a Blue Ribbon Design chart with fabric, an ort jar, and a clear glass flower flog. She had been on the hunt for one and I happened to come across a good sized one on an antique mall shopping trip. You can see these items on her blog
I was able to finish CCN Day at the Beach and will post a picture soon. (It needs to pay a visit to the ironing table) I hope you are all having a wonderful day. Happy Stitching!
