Sooooo here's the needle book I made for Vickie:
Joan Elliott's design - "Poodle Love"
Making these RAKs is an absolute delight for me. After stitching this adorable little guy, I was on a mission to find the perfect material - and found fabric from Alexander Henry - a retro pink cotton called (wait for it.....) "Poodles d'Amour". How serendipitous was that?!?!
Back cover of needle book
Inside of needle book - top of pocket embellished with "I Love My Dog" ribbon
Here are the other goodies sent:
Pink scissor fob and two poodle buttons
Pink fabric (including the rest of the "Poodle d'Amour fabric) and floss
Mary Jane (CalamityJr) received RAK #12. This free design is called "Little Irish Sampler" from The Sampler Girl. I had printed this off years ago and when looking for the link to share, I found her blog....but it looks like she has discontinued blogging.

Extra floss, fabric and pattern
RAK #13 arrived in Mary Anne's mailbox at Magpie's Mumblings.
Needle book - design by The Stitching Fairy and a scissor fob made by me
Inside of needle book - pockets topped with fabric trim that looks like a measuring tape
Back of needle book
Fabric and floss....and cross stitch pattern
Two more RAKs are still traveling to their destinations. I have five more to package up and get to the post office - most likely next week.
Now....back to stitching!
