Simple is good.

I have two small finishes to share this week. 
 
 Small and simple, but sweet nonetheless.
 
A bit of linen, a few embroidery stitches and a couple of lovely prints, all add up to a pretty way to keep needles safe and ready for use.
 




I love this needle book design!  Yes, this is not the first time I've used this pattern, which can be found in Sew Pretty Homestyle, and I know this won't be the last.  It's such a gratifying little project and makes me feel happy to see I accomplished a bit of sewing despite a busy week.

I'm going to keep the green linen needle book for my own use, but want to offer you the chance to win the needle book with the embroidered red rose on linen.  I'm certain to tuck in a few other sewing related treats along with it, so if you're interested... leave your comment* (making sure I can contact you by email) for your chance to win.  Consider this a long overdue thank you to all of you that stop by and make my day with your support.  I want to pass a little sewing happiness and friendship along...

*I'm willing to ship internationally and will draw the winner on April 7th.

**Comments have been closed for giveaway entry.  Winner to be drawn and announced here shortly...      Congratulations to Linda!  Your needle book will soon be on its way overseas to you. :o)
Thanks to all that entered.  I love giveaways...and I treasure your visits.  We may have to do this again SOON. ;o)

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts

  2. The needlebooks are lovely.

    The needlebook, pin cushion and zippered quilted bag that I received in your PIF quite some time ago are still used and cherished!

  5. Exclude me from your drawing because I don't use these, but I do want you to know that I think they are adorable and you do a fabulous job with them! I've had a thought...I would use one of these for X-stitch needles but it would have to have a loose woven cloth inside. Hmmm......

    I don´t think that I´ll win anything, Don´t use to do that, but I´m lucky to have a thing made by you at my bedside table right now;-)

  8. That is a beautiful little needle case. I love the embroidery on the front and the fact that it snap closes is brilliant, especially as I always throw my needles in the bottom of my bag.

  10. Your needle books are so cute. I've just starting using one because I got tired of losing all my needles in the depths of my pin cushions.
