Thinking 'bout a kit

Happy Sunday all. 
I'm sure a lot of you frequent Pinterest....
I know I do and I always find so 
much inspiration there.
My mind has been in such a creative mode 
these days.  While relaxing on Pinterest
one morning and I came across this
picture of a very old needlebook that
was made during the Civil War.
Picture courtesy of Pinterest.
I fell in love with it immediately
and wanted to do my own,
less expensive : ) version of it.
So, I set to work creating the
design and working out all
the finishing details.
And this was the result....
It turned out pretty sweet and
I got to thinking maybe some of 
my blogging friends would like to 
make one too.  I was thinking of 
putting together a kit to release
around the beginning of May. 
This would be an exclusive kit in 
limited quantities since I will include
a piece of the antique blue and cream
ribbon for you to add to the inside
of your finished needlebook.  
Here is the inside.
 I'd love to hear what you think and
I will provide more details in the
coming weeks. 
Thanks for stopping by and 
Happy Stitching.
