An embroidered girdle book by Helene

My buddy Helene gave me this beautiful little book as an elevation gift:

Her work is based on this image and a number of images Karen Larsdatter collected here.   You can tuck the knot into your belt to carry the book hands free.  When you need to scribble a quick note, or check a little reminder it flips right up.  It's a little strange that despite the centuries we've had to improve things, the arrangement is more convenient than answering a cell phone.

Check out Helene's other embroidery work.  She's doing some neat stuff, and she gives interesting and thoughtful gifts.
