Time to raise the roof and what do we find?
A little needleholder for my stitching.....
This was a very old UFO which was on my list of goals for this year. I sewed the little house a couple of years ago which I had intended to make into a little purse for my grand niece. But seeing it sewn, I decided she was too old for it. I put it aside and later thought it would be cute finished off as a needlebook. This week, I decided it needed to be taken off my list of things to do and came up with the idea of using it as a thread holder. It must be that it had to remain a UFO until I came up with just the right idea!
Now speaking of needlebooks! I used the random generator on my previous post to pick a surprise giveaway winner for this needlebook.
Do you remember this doll quilt I made? I cut fabrics to make one extra block so I could make a needlebook to give to one of my readers.
The lining was one of my favorite fabrics from the quilt. There are four wool felt pages to hold needles. The back is a simple stripe block to add the other various fabrics from the quilt.
