Yesterday was our monthly get together with Wendy for some sewing fun - you can see what everyone was doing here.
I spent my evening working on the next section of embroidery on my Scheepjes CAL shawl. Lots more colour to add but the basics are there.
But the postman calling was the best bit of my day yesterday when he brought me this package.
It is a couple of years since I have taken part in a swap - I was badly bitten last time so have been steering clear. But one of the Facebook groups that I belong to arranged a needle book swap and I thought that I would dip my toe in the water again. And I am so glad that I did as just look at what was in my parcel!
Isn't it gorgeous!
Just look at the detail in the embroidery.
The embroidered panel is aprox 3" square. And inside were these gorgeous flower head pins.
Owl is feeling very special with his own coordinated pins.
Oh yes and there are four little pockets inside for stashing needles and stuff.
Unfortunately my swap partner Carol does not have a blog but I am very pleased to have met up with her through Facebook and thank her very much for my beautiful needle book.
This is what I sent to Carol.
I based it on an old one that I have in my collection.
Well that is all for today, I am off to enjoy the sunshine - we have not seen a cloud for days! Have a great weekend - I shall be back next week with a blogaversary.
