Look What I Made!

I picked up two framed finished from the needlework shop last week. This is Z's panda:

He went with me to the shop and picked out the frame. I'm not sure how well the color is coming through in the picture, but it's a shade of green that is one of Z's favorite colors. He was so excited. He doesn't know that I picked it up. His birthday is this week and I think I'm going to wrap it up and give it to him as part of his birthday presents.

Aunt J's Daydreaming Angel is back also:

I think she came out really pretty. I can't wait to send it to her for her birthday.
Look what I made! It's a needle book:

Yesterday the kids were at school and I was finished with my cleaning, so I was surfing the web looking for interesting blogs to read, and I came across this one: http://focusonfinishing.blogspot.com/
I had always wanted a needle book, but thought they were hard to make. The directions that she had on her blog made it seem really easy that I thought even a novice like me could try it. So I looked for a small design that I thought would be good for the cover, went through my box of fabric scraps to see what I had on hand and at 9:00 pm last night I was sewing away. It's not perfect, but for a first try, it's not bad. I love trying new things like this. I feel like I've expanded my horizons!
