~*True Love ~ Two Birds*~

Warm Greetings to you Friends ~

Yesterday I received another delightful email sharing with me a beautiful finished ditty. My buddy, Beth was given my ~*Two Birds*~ needlebook sampler pattern, from a friend as a Christmas gift. Beth also designs primitive cross stitch patterns ~ JUST ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL ONES! She told me she had been wanting to make a needlebook for the longest time & getting the pattern gift was (as she says) "a kick in the pants". She customized the pattern to her needs by adding her own initials, a button closure, a thread winder and a scissors pocket. Hey... that is okay with me! It is wonderful that folks can make my designs special for them. She says now...."This little cutie is going to start travelling with me whenever I take a project along. No more ziplock baggies for me, no-sirree!"

Here are a few photos of Beth's beautiful needlebook ~

Beth is a hunter & gatherer of all things beautiful and vintage. She always finds the sweetest buttons, lace, and adornments. This button fits PERFECTLY as her closure.

The ~*Two Birds*~ needlebook pattern was one of my first pattern releases. When it was released, I hadn't thought of Valentine or True Love.... but looking at it today, it just seems perfect for the 'LOVE' theme and occasion. If you are interested in the pattern, it can be found in my Esty Shoppe.

Warm smiles & happy stitching..... Betty


  1. Oh, I love that one, really beautiful and prim and I like the way she did the inner portion.


  2. WOW! That is probably the most beautiful needlebook I've seen. Beth should start her own finishing company. She definitely has an eye for fabrics, embellishments, texture and color. I absolutely love it! Thanks for sharing, Betty!

  3. Love this....what a beautiful job!
    blessings, kathy
