At last I can show you needlebook I made for the exchange on the Mirabilia Stitchers board....



The fabric was a piece of unnamed opalescent linen from Stab & Stash, and I stitched part of Shimmering Mermaid. I found a lovely piece of dolphin patterned fabric for the inside, which I thought went well with the mermaid on the front!
