My First Felt Needle Book - My New Addiction

Hello my dear sweet friends -

Happy Thursday - and sure hope you are doing well.  

I am super excited to share my first felt needle book with you and my newest addiction.  These are so fun and easy to make.  This one is my own creation as far as how I put this one together.  

The cover is actually made of flannel with the inside pages being felt. I have had this floral flannel for some time now and was saving it for something special.  And, for me that turned out to be this needle book.  

The book measures 4" x 4" when closed and 8" x 8" when open.  I decided not to add a closure button because I didn't want to cover up the flowers.  The rest of the pages in this book are similar to the one shown in the second photo.  The only difference is I just added different styles of lace to each page.

I am using this one to help me keep better track of my altered stick pins. Have you made a felt needle book yet?  Have you even considered making one?  I'd love to know and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Have a blessed day!!

With hugs and smiles

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
