Two in One Day

Two posts in one day.  
That doesn't happen very often but, I had more than just the smalls.
I wanted to show more pictures too!

 The back side
 The inside so I have pockets for the needle packages.  
There is a pocket on the back flap.
After I had sewed it up, before I turned it right side out, I hoped I didn't screw up the direction of the pocket.  I thought I had checked it twice but, you know, self doubt. 
 Just a little doodah on the back of the book.
 The finished product...the button loop is a little too tight. 
 A good look at the button and the loop

 The Silver Needle in Tulsa, OK has been running specials all month.  
The first one was grab bags for $7.50, who could pass that up.
So, I got some for the stitching group.
We opened them last night.  
I should have taken more pictures but, I didn't.
There were some good patterns and some not so good.
At least there were no teddy bears.  
It was just fun and everyone was excited.
The little porcelain box has a tape measure in it.  
My friend Arttie got a kit that was the pincushion in the old zinc mason lids.  
There were a few patterns I may consider doing in the future.
Finally, got the rest of the flowers planted and started pulling weeds.  
Yippee!  Tomorrow is Friday!!!
Keep on Stitching
