Two new starts

At long last I actually have some progress to share on the Blueberry Needleroll for the SAL:)

I just love this, especially since I'm using my favourite shades of DMC - 924, 926 and 927. So until the 2nd weekend of May, this has gone back into my stitching basket.

Next up is the little amount I stitched on a new start on Sunday, Little House Needlework's Coffee Menu, my birthday treat to myself, lol. I've been wanting to stitch this for absolutely ages, especially since seeing Bea's finish recently:

Stitched on 32ct Zweigart Vintage Country Mocha linen.

Our postie girl must be wondering what's going on this week after delivering parcels from around New Zealand, the US, the Netherlands and England as I also received the chart and threads from Karen yesterday for the Indigo Rose SAL we're intending to do some time together for the Peekaboo pincushion. I can't wait to start this pretty one now Karen :)

Its a long weekend for the Easter holiday coming up here - yay, so hopefully there will lots of stitching going on. I'm going to start Spring Spot for the DT SAL, concentrate on getting the beading finished on the Mermaids, and whatever else takes my fancy :)

Catch up again soon!

Your needleroll is looking good. The coffee menu is a real cutie and I love the peak-a-boo pincushion. It looks like it will be nice to stitch.

Oh and happy Easter :)

Have to admit, Bea's finish is responsible for me falling in love with that Coffee Menu chart too ... finally succumbed to the temptation and ordered it from SB&B during the week's stash-fest :) Look forward to seeing yours grow in the meantime :)

I've been able to resist the coffee menu so far, but I feel my resistance fading - it's just so appropriate for my household where everyone, except my 18yodd, drinks coffee. Yes, they all do from the 9 yo on up, lol!
The blueberry needleroll is gorgeous - my favorite shades of blue too. :D
