Silk Ribbon Embroidery Needlebook

Just before Christmas I had a giveaway for some ribbonwork and soap. I had a wonderful time and met some wonderful new friends....

Imagine my surprise when I checked my mail on Christmas eve and and found a wonderful package from one of the people who won the giveaway!!!
I unwrapped my package and gasped, then jumped a bit and hugged my new silk needlebook!!!!
It is the most beautiful pale pink raw silk with lace and silk ribbon embroidery flowers.
It is filled with goodies, including needles,pins and beautiful silk ribbon.
It is all hand sewn!!!!!!!

It is so pretty that I made a new rose corsage pin to go with it!!
Can you tell I LOVE my needlebook?
Really, I turned out to be the winner in this giveaway!!!
Thank you so much Wanda!!
Wanda has a wonderful etsy shop called Roses in Winter
and a
beautiful blog,
 if you stop by for a visit, tell her I sent you.
Hugs and happy new year to everyone!
