Needlebook swap - sent and received

The London Modern Quilt Guild and the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild swapped needlebooks at our December meetings.  It was so much fun to open up the wrapped pressies that had been lovingly and creatively made, and then posted across the ocean!  I made two - one wonky neon triangles with circular hand stitches and a heart button and the other a spool of thread in raw edge applique with a vintage button:



...and received two in return.  The first was made by Stacey using all selvages and with great pockets inside (so clever) and the other a petite needlebook using all Tula Pink fabrics made by Cheryl.  This one will be a nice reminder of meeting Tula in 2013!  Thank you both for participating in this swap and thank you for your needlebooks!  



Also, a big thank you to Krista and Shevvy for organising - it was a lot of fun to see all the different needlebooks!

The circular stitching on your one is cool, I bet whoever received it is really chuffed. What a fun swap
