needlebook


A few weeks back, Katherine and I arranged a little swap. I saw the sweet little needlebooks she had made, and I couldn't get them out of my head. (Before I started blogging, I had never heard of a needlebook.) She was kind enough to offer to send me one of my choosing. I never knew a needlebook would make me giddy, but this one does.

Her attention to detail is amazing.
Thanks Katherine! I love it.

And as a side note, it works for a hand puppet in a pinch, according to my little 5 year old. :)

That really IS amazing!

Katherine said...

You're very welcome!

Who knew that a needlebook could make you giddy? ;o) Well, I'm tickled that you like it so much. Swapping is certainly fun!

Hmmm... never thought about the needlebook being able to double as a hand puppet (sans needles, of course ;o) Kids have some of the best creative ideas!

Cute.

Looks like a good Earth Day motif.

Happy Earth Day.
