Birthday Goodness

On my birthday, I got a note from camp friend, known in the comments as "dd," telling me she was finishing a project for me, but it would be a belated birthday gift. 
It came today and it is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. 


The back with my initials.
You can see how delicate this over-one stitching is.
Bear in mind the weather is atrocious today, these photos were the best I could get. The whole needlebook is about 2.5" x 2.5" and is stitched over one. Those black dots are tiny little beads. The stitching is perfect. You'll note the date of MMX. I just love it. I'm sitting here fondling it (with freshly washed hands).

It's so perfect. Thanks much to mi camp amiga.




Lining fabric, delicious! There's even a little pocket to hide
secret things. "dd" did a superb job finishing, but she's
been an excellent seamstress ever since she sewed her
thumb with a sewing machine as a child.

What a nice gift! It is a beautiful design and I love the idea of a pocket for secret things. I wonder what kind of secret things you'll put in there?
