It is the day we honor our needles for their work during the past year.
A couple of years ago, Susan Elliott of plays-with-needles offered a class to enable us to make our own needlebooks and I joined in.
And my needlebook sits by my chair every single day:
You will notice that the ties are not tied, probably because I am in and out of the needlebook with just about every stitching session.
And apparently I use more tapestry needles than any other, which reflects the fact that I work on linen and canvas more than any other ground.
Which is what I hope to do to today. What better way to honor something than to keep it in use?
