I think this one is my favourite so far. As I've mentioned before it can be hard for me to let the things I've made go sometimes. But nevertheless it's in the shop! I use my shop income to make a bit of a dent in the spending I do on crafts supplies. For example the Amy Butler weekender bag supplies really added up and it will be more than $60 in the end, and that's despite the fact that I'm using some pink fabric I had on hand. Also people have asked me for the needle books, which is really nice. I love to think that people all over the place have them tucked into their sewing boxes and use them when they sew.
This one took a bit longer with the embroidery details. When I'm working on things I develop an association with what I was watching at the time. For this batch of needle books it's actually been the world cup - Bradley is a big fan of soccer and for some reason of all team sports I like this one the best. Which is a nice way of saying that soccer doesn't bore me to tears! It gets more interesting when you start to understand what's going on. But it's almost over, France is playing Italy in the final game. But enough about soccer...while he's watching I'm working away on my needle books!
