Anyway, here's my progress.
Now, on to the needlebooks. I don't have many since I tend to make one as I need it.
Let me show you.
This first one was stitched to fit my first project box so I measured the space and fiddled about with bit of motifs to create what I wanted. This box is my everyday box for holding various needlecrafty things and the threads for my current project (Diligence).
Here it is at home.
Next up is the one I keep in my embroidery project box. I am trying to teach myself freestyle embroidery but I get easily distracted by cross stitch so progress is slow.
And this is its home. As you can see, this one is much slimmer (wish I could say the same about myself).
I can't remember where this design came from but I'm sure it was from a French chart book that I borrowed from a friend some years ago.
The next one is a Moss Creek design from JCS Christmas issue, 2008. It holds needles that I only use occasionally and it lives in my crafty bag.
Then there is the one with my beading needles. Not that I do much beading, but some designs call for beads and, sometimes, I use a beaded edging on ornaments. This is another cobble-up of motifs.
Last, but not least, we have the needlebook from a Stitcher's Journey by Blackbird Designs, stitched because I liked it and that's as good a reason as any!
This one doesn't have a proper home so it sits in a dish with my other smalls.
Well, that's a bit more done in my catch-up of stitching.
Thank you to all who have left comments. I really appreciate them.
