Before I introduce today's item, I'd like to address a few comments I received the other day suggesting I sell my things on eBay instead of my blog. In response, I just want to say that I weighed my options and decided to use my blog as an auction platform for two simple but very important reasons: to make my sale exclusive to my wonderful and lovely readers and because - call me silly - but I feel better knowing that the things I've made are going to people I'm connected with somehow. I may not have met you or even corresponded with you before. You may not have ever commented on my blog. But if you visit me here and read my silly stories and enjoy my pictures and are hopefully inspired by the things I do here, then we are connected and means something to me.
Selling my things on eBay had many advantages for me. And I considered them. But they did not outweigh the importance of honouring my little community here. I have no plans to turn my blog into an auction house. But I have another 8 or 10 more items to sell. And then I need to take a break while we move.
I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I'm so far beyond flattered by the generosity and support you've given me over the past few weeks. Honestly, I can't even believe my eyes sometimes. I'm deeply grateful. Thank you. Thank you to every single one of you who let me know that my blog means something to you by coming here. You don't need to participate in my auction. You don't even need to say hi. (And I always feel terrible when I don't reply - which is far too often, but just know that I read every single comment ... and I do reply to you in my head, if not with my keyboard.) But I know you come here. And I think that's lovely. I don't take your time for granted. I know there are many wonderful blogs out there and your choice to come here is ... very special to me. And it makes me happy. :) Thank you.

Because this little cutie holds pins, needles and scissors, I thought it was fair to call it a sewing book rather than just a needlebook.
It measures 3 1/2" x 4". The pins and needles as shown are included.
BUT THE SCISSORS ARE NOT INCLUDED! I need to make sure you know that. (I was just too lazy to take new photos! LOL!)
This auction ends July 2nd at 6:00 pm MST. Shipping is extra and I'll send a PayPal invoice to the winning bidder.
