Little Sheepies

A good friend of mine is having a birthday soon so I decided to make her a little stitched gift. My friend doesn't stitch (although she told me recently she'd like to learn) but she does lots of beautiful knitting and sewing work. I thought she might like a needlebook to store her wool needles.

Wool Needlebook by Little House Needleworks
stitched with suggested threads on 32ct mocha linen

I used some of the same fabric leftover from when I made my niece Alice's Christmas stocking last year, and then used shell star buttons to attach the felt on the inside.

I've also had a little knitting finish this week, and I did make a start on Twilight Pearls the other day so I will have some pics up of them both in the next few days :)
