Needlebook with silk and linen thread

Updating with the latest on the needlebook. I've almost finished the front cover. The green border at the top needs to be done on the remaining three sides, and there's some knots around the edge. Then I'll work on the back cover.

I haven't updated my web pages much since I got my computer back on line. I don't have my web page tool running on the new computer yet. I'll have to get that going again.

Nice Shoes

I don't share many family stories, but this one was too cute.
I was wearing a new pair of shoe today, and my son (almost 2) had noticed them when I got him up this morning. As I was leaving for work he was having breakfast with my husband, and he pointed out my new shoes to Dad. Dad offered some fatherly advice: "You can impress a girl by complimenting her shoes." So he said to me: "Nice shoes". I thanked him and gave him a smooch. My son then looks at me and says "Nice shoes." It was so cute. (He got a smooch too). We're raising quite the ladies man!

This will be the front of a small needlebook. This needlebook will be a guild project next year.

The flower basket is stitched in silk thread. The pulled work is done with linen thread. The basket is done with pulled stitches. The flowers are done with one strand of silk thread over one linen thread.

The finished book will be about 3" square.

More punch needle!

I took a break from my needlebook, and did this small punch needle piece tonight. It was fun, and quick. It's nice to get something done quickly. Very inspirational! The pattern came in a small orange box, I'll cut the daisy out and glue it to the top. It's going to be so cute.
