Cute needle book

I think it's pretty cute anyway. I had a wonderful needle book and I use it so much. It is with me all the time, so I wanted to make a new one that had some of my favorite things on it. And made with some of my favorite fabrics. You all know that one of my favorite things is our VW bus that we camp in. So I added the orange bus. Orange being one of my favorite colors.

I love everything about campfires. I hand embroidered this sweet campfire, pattern from Bareroots. One of my favorite smells is campfire. I love the heat from a campfire and to see the different colors of orange/yellow/red/ and blue they make. I also love the sound of a campfire popping.

And the daisy fabric is my all time favorite fabrics. I only have 2 fat quarters of it, so I've been hoarding those pieces wondering what I would do with them. Now I have some on my needle book that I see almost everyday. Did you guess that the white daisy is my favorite flower?

Here is the back of my needle book. I LOVE this yellow fabric. I have enough of it I may make myself a Spring skirt out of it too.
I've stitched up my name so I don't forget who I am. LOL I love outerspace, so I've stitched up some stars around my name.
And my two favorite animals...the frog and chihuahua. This is my little chihuahua ,Basil, barking at a frog.
The inside of my needle book has a bunch on my favorite fabrics in it. The one with the little orange/red tents came from Paris. My girl friend, Chesley, went to Paris last year and brought it back for me for Christmas. She knows I am a camp love girl.
So here it is my cute "favorite things" needle book. P.S. these are just a few of my favorite things. :o)
In other news.... I am still stitching on the "flower" quilt. And loving it.
