More crafting!!

I know, hard to believe after not many posts due to the holidays, but here I am again!  I found this great little tutorial on Nanacompany blog and just had to make one.  That is unusual for me, but what the hey!

 It's a needle book!  I made it in just a couple of hours following the easy tutorial and picking out my fabrics.  I am always searching for needles and heaven knows I have enough of them, just keep losing them!
 The back of the book is a small patchwork.  I used some fabrics from my charm swap I did this summer with Ellison Lane Quilts.  I put my GrammieQ label on one end just for fun.  I thought that was better than trying to put my name on it.
 She suggested embellishing the felt pages.  I also scalloped the edges with my scallop rotary cutting blade.
 I love the fancy little touches in here.  In fact, I have since put some of my tapestry needles through the holes in the eyelet lace.  They fit perfectly.
The little tape measure thing is a piece of twill I got at the Purl.  I am really loving this little book.  Go visit Nanacompany and make one of your own.  Also it would make a great gift!
