I met up with a friend recently and when I returned home I decided to make a little needlebook for her as a surprise, I chose blue because it is one if her favourite colours. I designed the needlebook myself and decided to stitch Jane Austens famous quote on the back:
‘There’s nothing like staying home for real comfort’
I made the fimo clay rose from a glittery blue colour to match the DMC satin threads.
I used a free chart for the alphabet but unfortunately I cannot remember where I got it from, if anyone can help jog my memory I would appreciate it.
My friend has since let me know that she loves it!
It was a pleasure to stitch this for you Diane.
I am currently stitching:

Planning my blog anniversary gift for the 31st July 09
Since posting these pictures I was invited to post on another blog for stitchers books, this blog has some lovely photographs of stitchers books and there are a couple of links that show galleries of photographs, it really is worth checking it out for inspiration – the link is here.
Happy stitching everyone and thankyou for your visit!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching. Lynn B
