needlekeeper

I have also joined this wonderful swap . I just noticed that we still need 15 people to join this swap and then we can get started. So go on , take a look and join!
This is the needlekeeper I have made for Donna(chookyblue) for the pincushion or needlekeeper swap from the country cellar. I allways love making things like this.
This is the front of the needlekeeper.




And this is the back.






Here are my daughter Astrid and our youngest dog Meghan.

Hi Monique!
Wat flieg de tijd zeg! Ik sie dat ik je een hele lange tijd niet meer heb bezocht. Ja, het is wel erg druk geweest, maar ja dat is ook geen excuus. Wat heb je hele mooie dingen ontvangen en gekregen van vrienden zeg! En ook hele mooie dingen gemaakt!Ja,so veel inspiratie. Oh, wat leuk dat jij ook aan het haken bent, het is soooooo ontzettend leuk vind je niet? Ja, ik hoor dat je nu helemaal verslaafd bent, hihi :) Mooie kleuren trouwens. Ik ben ook gek op roze en wit, Maar dat wist je al :) The laatste foto, was het een "needlepocket"? Ja, ik denk het wel, dat heb ik self ook nodig. Ik heb zoals jij net hebt gezien een pincushion gemaakt. Maar die was bedoeld voor een vriendin. Eeen zo`n heb ik ook nodig. Ik was gister avond van plan een te maken, maar ik was veel te slaperig en moe. Vandag weer een nieuwe kans. Wij hebben vandag hier in het noorde van het land prachtig weer en ik ga dadelijk lekker in de tuin zitten lezen. Ja, studeren da. Antiek&Oude kunst.Ik hoop ta alles goed is!
Fijne weekend Monique en tot binnenkort weer! (",)

Your daughter is very pretty. Don't they just grow up so fast?!
I've been thinking of making a couple of needlekeepers myself. Yours turned out really nice.

I wish I could knit too - might be inspired to by your blog. Will definitely be revisiting.

I love the needle keeper!! I need one for all my crochet hooks. I keep buying them over & over because I 'loose' them only to find them after I buy another. I have 5 size J hooks currently.

Your swap looks like fun but I am just starting to sow and not good enough for a swap yet. I will watch your swap to see neat ideas that I can try out.
