Firstly, a big thank you for all the wonderful comments about the needlerolls. They are quite addictive, obviously, lol. And a big hello to those of you whom are going to join in on the SAL. I hope to start on the Sweetheart Tree Blueberry roll sometime a bit later today.

2. ornie SAL with the kiwi ladies - yes, Britty Kitty ornie
3. continue on with the Mermaids - yes
4. gift for friend's birthday - yes, Be Happy by Shepherds Bush
5. a "just because" gift for a friend - yes, Sweetheart Tree's Friendship
6. make a start on the 12 Blessings of Christmas - no, not yet
7. Drawn Thread Thursday's - yes

I could learn a thing or two from you Katrina...if I was more organised, I too, could complete things :)

I started stitching on my needleroll tonight. Whew. I have never stitched on jobelin before. It's so tiny. lol I feel like an old woman. I have started a stitching blog of my very own so that I don't have to gum up your comment board with my progress. It's @ www.groggyfroggy.blogspot.com.
Lisa btw...you are a wonder. I can't imagine getting through that many finishes.

Katrina...I forgot to add...could you put a list on your blog of the people who have joined in the Needleroll SAL, so I can keep up with their progress. (just so I can make a note of the links) I am stitching Violet Roll by Shepherds Bush for the record. Yes thats right I'm in. LOL

Cathy said...

You made great progress on your stitching in March. Great job!

Von said...

Well done, Katrina! Can't wait to see all your April progress. :D

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday Katrina!

Stitchie Kiwi said...

Loved your needle-rolls Katrina - you and Kath have quite an addiction! LOL

You've certainly been a stitching machine the last month - really nice finishes too :)

KarenV said...

Looks like you had a very productive March Katrina - good luck for your April goals.

Bea said...

Finally I can read some blogs and I'm seeing your needle rolls. They're really lovely, Katrina.

Carol said...

Happy Birthday Katrina! I hope my gifts arrive soon :-) I think I am a day late here - I keep forgetting you are about a day ahead of me! Therefore, hope you had a great day!

Katrina, just wondering whether you have the M Designs Sun Needleroll chart ... if not, do you want a copy? I ended up with two copies, so have one spare if you want it :) If so, just drop me a line at shakatak@iinet.net.au :D
