Aren't these sweet needlebooks? These were both made for me by my mom: This little green and white one is the one I use everyday. I keep all my #24 chenille needles in it. I love it - especially the front cover with this blue flower and button! This needlebook is one that she just made - she used one of the cupcakes from my cupcake embroidery pattern to make this little felt applique for the front. Notice those french knots!
This is what the books look like inside. They have felt pages for needles.
I really needed another book because I have just ordered some new needles! My 1st Bambina recommended that I try chenille needles in size 26. She suggested ordering them online from Colonial Needle. I did, and I also ordered a packet of size 28:
I love these new needles. The size 28 is so delicate (and sharp!) I took a picture to show the size difference in the needles:
The size 24 is at the bottom of the picture, above that is the 26 and at the top is the size 28. You can see how much finer and shorter the 28 is than the 24! I am thrilled with these needles and my new needle book and can't wait to start using them!
