moonday needle book


My little needle book -- cotton, linen, wool felt, an old button and vintage rickrack trim. Oh, how I loved making it.

Today is a waning moonday in the sign of Cancer. We may feel more sensitive and find ourselves not wanting to leave home now. Instead, we want to nest and cook and feed people. And grow things -- everything from plants to collections.

A change of weather blew in this morning and the temperature has been dropping all day. They say we may even have our first snowfall -- one of these days that forecast will be right.

Wishing you the happiest of weeks.

This inspires me to make myself a needle book. i have made many for friends--but never myself. What am I waiting for? Thanks for sharing.

Nesting with crows. Charming book. Yes, feeling super sensitive and tending to talk a blue streak when I must go out, pouring positive energy everywhere, but at home, quiet, lovely retreat and wrapped in comforter and old sweaters...the difference is astounding....I crave both extremes. But I've got a balance wheel and a turn off switch. All's well.

what a beautiful result! I finally made myself one in September... mostly for travel. And I have a simple new habit (regarding needle-loss) of assigning a particular spot for needles on each of the three (four?) main pin cushions I use.

I really love that crow and the decorative edge and the writing behind.
