I haven't done any crochet since Valentine's Day. Fifty tiny hearts in one night was a little much!

swap-bot, and they are so easy fun! I made an owl one, too, from a sketch I made, but I had misplaced my camera and had to send it off before I could take a picture! The kitty embroidery pattern was adapted from this vintage transfer posted by yellowzeppelin on Flickr. I'm getting ready to make a bunch more, but I haven't yet decided what kind of closure I like best. I have to test out a few buttoning configurations I have in mind, too. The green on the cat needlebook is actually seam binding, which is a little thin, but it stays tied nicely. For the needlebook below I used a cute Japanese print and 1/8" satin ribbon, which slips a little, but still stays tied okay.
