needle book

I've been wanting to make a new needle book for awhile, so the other day when I still was not quite up to moving around too much I sat at the table and stitched up this little needle book using Amy's tutorial (yay for actually making something I pinned on Pinterest!) 
I love the way it turned out.  I have always loved the look of postage stamp quilting, but have been too intimidated to try it.  I really was not that hard, I think I might actually try it again sometime.
  I only did a couple of things different from the tutorial, like using the patchwork for the front and back and not doing any applique.  I also machine stitched everything, no hand stitching.  I have not done any decorations to the pages either, I might add something later, but for now it is working just fine sans decoration :)

Here is the back.
What have you been stitching up these days?
