Here are a group of delightful baskets of flowers for you to enjoy.

Dont you just love these needlebooks. They are -
Top left - "Flower Basket" - Japan
Top right - "Presented with Woman's Realm" (give-away) - inside it says "Empire Made"
Bottom left - Made in Germany
Bottom right - Foreign

Left - vase of flowers - Foreign
Top right - "Flower Basket" - Japan
Bottom right - not marked

Inside the 'Made in Germany' flower basket. With older needlebooks, we find smaller needle packets inside and perhaps a bodkin too.

September is National Sewing Month

Go to for projects, learn-to-sew articles, ideas and more.

There are still a lot more needlebooks to cover, but I think I will take a small break and post about something different next......!

Oh I love your needlebooks! I have just a few in my sewing antiques cabinet. Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you will visit more often.

Gorgeous needlebooks! Do you display them somehow. They'd be beautiful in a big frame or something. Ok, off to see all the other cool goodies you have posted!

Hi Marian--me again! Go peek at my blog--there's a special award there waiting for you. You can save it and then bestow it upon those that you choose to. Smile!
