Yay! I get to kick off the gallery. @bethntim sent me not one but TWO needle books! I was hoping for a needle book, and boy did she deliver! I love them both!

The first one is a beautiful sky blue, with a machine-embroidered design of a bird holding scissors, along with roses and a message that reads, “CREATE”.

The outside feels like a stiffened felt, which should help protect me from poking myself!

The inside pages are all soft, and have plenty of space for lots of needles.

Right now, most of my needles are in a jumble in a plastic box, so this needle book is really going to help me organize things so I can easily find an embroidery needle vs a leather working needle vs a beading needle. Yay!

The other needle book was labeled, “Open if you dare!” But when I opened it, I fell in love!
She’d sent along the stained first-attempt needle book, and I’m so, so glad she did!!!

This colorful cross-stitch cat is amazing, and captured my heart.

The stitches are so, so tiny! I wasn’t even sure at first, that it was even cross-stitch.

There is a gorgeous batik fabric inside.

And best of all, on the back is the Lettuce Craft logo and the year and name of the swap.

The stains are barely noticeable, and just give the book a rosy glow. :relaxed:

Thank you SO much, Beth! I’ll treasure these forever, and will be reminded that SOME good things did happen in 2020.

I have just received a biscornu from @storerboughtcreation!! I love it.

Not sure what the best angle for a picture is for a biscornu, so I just took a bunch of pictures to show it off!
