And here is the Needlebook all finished. I am not really happy with how the pages went in as they are not perfectly spaced or centered and they didn't line up on the outer edge and so I had to trim them to match BUT it is only for my use and so as long as it's functional that's really all that matters. I just have to finish the labels for the pages and sew those to the felt and then I can fill it up! Yeah!

Here are the pics so far! I will be so happy when all the couching is finished, but it does add alot to the design!

I finally finished the sides and now to figure out the top. It says to do needle lace roses but I am just no good at the Single Brussels stitch which is used. I am thinking of do a Stumpwork Rose instead. Or possibly a little Stumpwork Bee.......
I will be taking photos of the construction since it is kinda unique in the way it's put together. I am looking forward to cutting all of these out! They are all sewn together by hand which I enjoy.

Most of the stitches used in this are basic embroidery stitches, couching, satin making up the bulk of the design. Along with some beads on each one they move along really fast. I should have the sides finished early next week and hope to get some good up close pics when the sun is out!
