I mentioned in the last post about going into swaps. I have some pictures you might enjoy today that were from a needlecase swap run by Vickie Brown of Ribbonsmyth. My name was given to Jules Yonge of Texas and she sent me this absolutely beautiful needlebook. I say book because it is hard sided and joined with fabric hinges. She is an expert needleworker and I was just blown away when it arrived. She spent a tremedous amount of time making this I am sure. She has become a nice on line friend and maybe some day we will meet at a retreat somewhere. Right now Jules is having a hard time in her life. Her elderly aunt she was very close to passed away, then her Father passed away and Jules then broke her ankle. I think her hard times are behind her and there will be sunshine ahead.
I took these pics outside today but they appear a little washed out. In real life they are much more vibrant.
I have pics somewhere of the one I made for the swap but I cannot think of who I sent it to. When I do I will post the pics.
