RAOK for a friend

The front of the needlebook A sampler motive

The back of the needlebook A - is for Aida

The inside of the needlebook

I had this done up pretty slowly although it was a small piece as I was putting the designs that I had excerpt from the Sajou's alphabets and some sampler motives that I took from magazine. And I have just the right band to do this and also the felt that goes pretty well with the whole piece. It's not troublesome to finish it....and anyone can quickly put this together.

I hope my recipient likes it as she said she does not have any needlebook....so I though I do up one for her......and that you can use it everytime you stitch and the small size of it makes it easy to carry around even in your handbag....:)

Aida, I hope you will find the needlebook usefull during those stitching times. Enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed stitching it for you

Zohrah, thank you for the compliment.

Ulla, thanks for your compliment. It is not my own design. I took the front sampler motive from one of the sampler charts that I have and the alphabet is taken from one of the Sajou's alphabets. And I just designed the frame of the motives :)

Hugs
Leena
