Today I am binding my April UFO and you just know how much I love my binding by hand stitching time! It's exciting to be so close to finishing a project and to be able to spend some relaxing stitching time thinking about the project, and what it has taught you. I'll be posting this finish tomorrow for the Be A Diamond blog hop.
As a special treat today, I want to share a treasure that my friend Debby found (this is the same friend that found the antique paper needle books a couple of years ago).

This needle book is made of wood. The images on the outside depict St. John's Church on one side and the river Tay in Perth. I have no idea how they fastened the image to the wood but it really is a lovely piece of stitching history. If only we knew that history!
The blue fabric in the centre is quite fragile and worn. The paper needle folder in one of the pockets is literally disintegrating.
