The needlebooks are mutliplying.
Thanks to my crazy quilting friends, I have a new and improved pattern and instructions for the needlebook E-course and the pattern that I will be offering this Wednesday in honor of Hari-Kuyo, the Japanese Festival of Broken Needles.
In case you missed it, here's the post that explains Hari-Kuyo in more detail.
Though most of our group, reproduced my needlebook original...
There were two friends who wanted to use their own fabrics.
This project is PERFECT for customizing your own cover and inside...to make it your own.
I plan to have kits available for those who want my needlebook version but there will also be a supply list available for those who choose to use their own supplies.
Or, like some friends did this past Saturday, you can create a personal modification of my design.
I want the design to be flexible so that you're happy with whatever you create.
Irene was doing a more muted version with eggplant, mustard and hunter green colors...she didn't like the stark white of the labels so she covered them with an organza ribbon...
Because of her, today I'm tea-dying a set of labels to see how well they take the "dye".
By the end of the day, everyone was finished and ready to start filling their books with needles...
And believe it or not, Mary actually broke a needle on Saturday! (Good luck, don't you think?)
Thankfully, she had the perfect place to put it.
I am so very grateful to my friends. Thanks to them, I have great feedback and changes to make so that the pattern and supplies are even better by the time they make it to you.
So I'm very busy making kits, taking step-by-step pictures, packaging needle labels, and finalizing the pattern details in preparation for the "Go Live" on Wednesday.
Thanks for those who expressed an interest in the E-course. I'll be announcing the details on Wednesday for a start date of February 23. I can't wait!
Happy Monday everyone! I've got to get back to work...
