Lucious Lace PinKeep...

This is the most delicious lucious Lace PinKeep.  My friend Judy of Judy's Fabrications makes these and so many more amazing things.   This one is my birthday present from Judy and her very generous, kind and giving heart.  I commented on the lace "needlekeeps" she was creating and I am so blessed to now have this one in my very grateful hands.  Thank you Judy!

Here is the book opened up to show front and back.  No it isn't angled but my camera shot is bad.
I am sew in love with all these laces and buttons and charms Judy has included.  All in yummy creams and ecru and white.

This is the inside front cover with lots more buttons, lace and a little sewing machine charm.  In the lace pocket Judy has included a little pincushion with pins and needles.

Now we are seeing the inside back cover with another lace pocket and some more beautiful buttons. Between the front and back cover are wool felt pages to hold lots of pins and such.  As I was swooning over this beautiful keepsake I decided what I would keep withing its lace covers.

Because Judy is such a wonderful Angel to so many with all her charity work and generosity to all I just knew I would keep my Angel pins in this lovely lucious pinkeep.    Here are a couple of my pins.

On another page I put two more angel pins.  The top pin is adorning a silk flower and this is how I usually wear this angel pin on my blazer.  Judy I hope you like how I am using my Lace Book.  I am truly grateful for our blogging friendship.  You are clearly an Angel Judy Dear.  Blessings My Friend.
Now with Judy's encouragement and this lovely lace keepsake in my hands I shall try to make one.  I have always wanted to make one but just didn't know how and where to begin.  When you visit Judy's blog you will find a wealth of links for so many things she is busy creating.  I shall post my progress soon.  I have some great least I think they are.
We got some rain yesterday and are so grateful for the moisture.  The heater is working to keep us warm.  Fall colors are fantastic.  I did get THE question at the Chamber many times Friday. Thankfully the weather was glorious and visiting people were overjoyed with our little town and beautiful surroundings.
Welcome to my newest followers.  Thank you to my faithful commenters.  I do cherish each and every one of you.  May you be doing exactly what makes you happiest.  Creative Bliss...
