Needle Book or Needle Case

I can't believe the summer is coming to an end. Where did the time go. It seems like yesterday that school ended and here we are almost completed 2 weeks already. The weather has been just great the last few weeks. Unfortunately it wasn't our normal hot month of August. The days were warm but the nights cool, which makes for good sleeping but it reminds me too much of fall. I see leaves changing already. It's not that I don't like fall it is winter I dread. I hate the cold, snow and ice. It seems our spring and summers are getting shorter. That means more months on the cool/cold side. Maybe I am just getting older (sigh).....

I finally was able to finish one little project. This is my crazy quilted needle book or needle case. I am also working on another one which will soon be finished.



All I did was cut a front and a back piece and sew them together, embellish as desired. A lining piece and attached 2 pieces of felt (sewn down the middle) and a piece of batting and ribbon to close the book. Layer them, sew around edge, leave opening to turn and turn inside out and stitch opening closed.
