A little finish

Thank you so much for all the comments on my Imagine quilt! Unfortunately I haven't been able to respond to all of you, but know all the nice words are truly appreciated!

There haven't been much sewing here since I finished it. A few log cabin blocks in brushed cottons for a soft version of Carrie Nelson's "Raise the Roof" are half finished

And I have been playing with some of the leftover scraps of Circle of Quilters fabrics and made this needle book for someone special ;o)

The stitchery on the cover is from a Gail Pan pattern for a tad smaller needle book. And compared to Gail's pattern I have turned the pockets - made two small and one large - and added a clip for a small pair of scissors.

...and a little certain someone just had to be the centre of attention - you wouldn't think he's normally camera shy *lol*

Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

Anne Ida, those brushed cottons are looking promising! I love those colors, and homespuns or brushes cottons always feel home-y and warm!
The turtle...I'm not so sure about!? :-D Is he (with a leash, no less!!! LOL) a pet?

Oh I like the little clip you put in! Love your little case although I wasn't paying attention while this was opening up and mr turtle gave me a start at first! Woke me up quick!
