Pincushion Swap and a Special Book

Camera in hand it was off to town on Friday and a visit with mum. She also took part in the Pincushion Swap hosted by Jeannet and here is the lovely pincushion made by Lyda in Holland.
Mum has a picture of the pincushion she made and sent to Lyda on her camera but that will be require a longer visit to be able to share the picture.

Some very special mail arrived about a month ago and I keep meaning to post but haven't got round to it until today.
I finally took the plunge had 1/3 of my blog reproduced in a book at Blog2Print. I had followed the link from Chookyblue quite a while ago but was never game to go through with it. Now I wish I had done it sooner and will be going ahead with the next installment shortly, especially while the dollar is up. (This book titled 'Country Roses' covers my blog before I changed the name to 'Nells Notions')

It's so wonderful to be able to leaf back to when I started blogging and have 'ah-ha' moments. Like a diary with pictures ... full of memories! And yes that is my 'blue moon' rose on the front cover. The back cover has a photo of my feline girls.
The weather is drizzly here today and I have lots of sewing or stitching in mind. Hope you have a creative day too!


  1. the pincushion swap was pleased you got your blog printed......the first year I have in 2 books as the number of photos was restricted but after that I got it printed each year........just waiting for December to end and I will be off to get it printed again..........I love looking thru them.........

  2. what a lovely keepsake of your blog entries. It will be lovely journal to hand down to someone.
    A lovely blue pincushion!
    Your lilac collage looks very pretty. That rose in the centre is stunning. Does it have a strong perfume?

  3. The book looks lovely Narelle. Must be so much fun going through your memories and looking back at the pictures.

  4. Hello Narelle,
