This is my needle keeper book. I wanted to thread up a bunch of needles so I wouldn’t have to thread those tiny eyes while I was riding in the car, so I made up this little matchbook style needle keeper. I just used some scraps of card stock weight scrapbook paper and felt. The whole thing took me about 5 minutes to make. Then I prethreaded my needles and wrapped the thread around each “page” in the book.
It was so nice to just pull out a new threaded needle when I ran out of thread that I have just kept rethreading all the needles at once and putting them back in the keeper even though I'm not stitching while riding in a car anymore!
Here is my first completed block!!! I'm going to have to wait for a sunny day and take them outside for a photo shoot because the bad lighting in my sewing room really doesn't do the colors justice!
And here is how much I have done so far!
That's just 3 blocks. 46 more to go! They are not sewn together yet, just placed up on my design wall. Maybe I'll have it done in time to be a wedding gift for Zoey. That gives me about 20 years to get it done :)
