All the Way to Italy

This needlebook was a surprise exchange to Vania in Florence, Italy. I sent with it two NZ Kiwi coasters but somehow forgot to take a snapshot of those. Hopefully Vania will put up a photo. It is exciting to have such "international contact" - many thanks to all you wonderful ladies.

The needlebook is one I did in a class with an embroidery teacher in 2001 and it was great to stitch another. In linen with DMC perle thread it combines many different types of stitches and has two flannel pads for needles inside. Here's shots of front and back.
