Friendship Grows



Here's a needlebook I finished on 3/3/07 as part of Stitchers Timeout needlebook exchange. This exchange was different than others I've done in that all the needlebooks are sent to one central person, along with a self-addressed stamped envelope. The coordinator then 'exchanges' needlebooks and sends them out.

I stitched 'Friendship Grows' by Lizzie Kate on 14ct baby pink aida with Six Strand Sweets floss, and embellished it with tiny pastel buttons. I put two pockets on the inside to hold packages of needles, needle threaders or small scissors. It took me 5 hours to stitch the design and another hour to assemble it into the needlebook. The book is tied shut with pink satin ribbon.
