Hi everyone, it was my sisters birthday yesterday and I decided to make her a few birthday gifts, I made a pin keep and two needle books. My sister loves autumn colours so I decided to make the pin keep and matching needle book out of Dinky Dyes silk thread on linen and then I saw the cute pattern with the little fishes and made another needle book in a brighter colour palette with her star sign of Pisces on the front.
I took inspiration for the pinkeep from the one that Andrea made me here .
I give details of the free patterns under the photographs.
I have also been awarded another blog award from Kim and Cindy F thankyou so much! I have listed at the bottom of this post 10 of the blogs I like to visit but I do visit many more!
