Stitchery Pinbook Swap...
I participated in Jenny of elefantz swap for a Pinbook or Needlebook using a simple book design and one of Jenny's adorable embroidery designs. Because I belong to her monthly Stitchery Club it was very easy to select one of my favorites of her designs. My swap partner Lydia of Chalk Outlines likes green and purple so that is the color scheme I went with. The photo above is what I created.
This is the sweet Pinbook Lydia created for me. She hand stitched a heart with flowers and a bee. She also added a pink heart button. I adore this and thank you Lydia.
This is the inside of her Pinbook with a nice felt bed for the pins and needles to reside upon.
Jenny had a couple of added goodies we were to include with our Pinbooks and Lydia nailed it perfectly with what she included for me. Butterflies on fabric and buttons and embroidery threads all in my very favorite blues. Great job Lydia.
Here is another view of my Pinbook I created for Lydia and sent along. This is the front and back view. Jenny's designs are so adorable and easy to transfer and stitch.
Here is the inside view of the Pinbook. I included a green butterfly beaded pin and another beaded pin in purples. As for the required buttons, fabrics and floss I included I neglected to get any photos of the packages I sent. I was sew excited about the Pinbook I totally forgot to snap the rest.
These Pinbooks are quick and easy to create and would make great gifts for any time of year and for any occasion. Thank you Jenny for a wonderful Stitchery Swap.
As a side note I have enjoyed belonging to Jenny's first inaugural Stitchery Club and now I have joined her second year club which will have even more goodies for us. It is a gift I give to myself and even though life gets in my way of stitching everything I at least have lots of inspiration for future use. Just click the link above to find out more from Jenny herself. I am not affliated or compensated but merely a completely satisfied customer.
Big wind storms here and that results in pine needles covering everything. The roads are so full and when cars and trucks go whizzing by the pine needles get clumped in the center of the roadway and look like large animals/deer. I never drive over any of the bundles because I never know what might be inside of them. Some people have tumbleweeds and we have rolling pine needle bundles.
October Falling Into Autumn Bliss and Halloween Happiness to you...
