Many of our friends are in the process of selling and buying houses, and moving to new homes.
We’re holding them in our hearts and wishing them the most joyful time in their new ‘Home Sweet Home’.

I had an ‘aha’ moment when it struck me that using the ‘Home Sweet Home’ tapestry diary piece as the front cover of a needle book would be a fun thing to do.
What’s a needle book? It’s a way of storing and carrying your craft and sewing needles so they don’t get lost in a project bag or box or disappear inside a pincushion.

By the way, you don’t have to weave a little tapestry for the cover of the needle book…. plain is fine, too!
