My lastest finished project

I managed to finish this one just in time to take it to Sue's weekend! I bought the pattern at a retreat in Pigeon Forge, TN last November. It is all stitched over one on 32 ct. I think it must be a With My Needle pattern, but I'm not 100%! And I've already passed on the pattern and have another stitcher waiting in the wings for it, so I can't even look to see the title! The title of the book was stitched in French and said book 2 on it. Well, since it was only my book 1 and I doubt I'll do another... I changed the title to English and labeled it MINE! :) I had to backstitch each page, cut them all apart, and then stitch a little piece of cardboard inside two pages and connect all the backstitching! Took two days to do all that! Plus I had to hand attach a little ribbon to connect all the pages! Lots of pinning together and poking myself with pins! But I just love it! One of my most favorite smalls!:)

Sorry some of the pictures are blurry! My camera is not good at taking close up pictures of details! Okay, so maybe it's not the camera!!
