Love of Needlework exchange

This is just a quickie post to show what I sent and received in the Love of Needlework exchange. This exchange required you to make a needlebook on the theme of needlework. Jill was my partner and this is what I sent her. It is taken from Little House Needleworks Travelling Stitcher and uses the given Crescent Colours threads. The first pic shows a couple of extras I included. Somethings from Jill's wishlist:

And today I got a lovely needlebook through from Goldie. She sent me this sweet needlebook with some needles and pins in and so many lovely extras. Goldie you really spoiled me. Thanks so much. I love the Old Willow silks and I know just what to use them for. I love it all.
