Monday Update

Over the recent weekend I made up the Shamrock Needleroll:

I think my choice for July's needleroll SAL is going to beVictorian Floral - I have already stitched this design but it was for an exchange a few years ago. I made up a list up of the Sweetheart Tree Rolls I'd like to stitch over the next few months:

July - Victorian Floral
August - Remberance Rose
September - Tulip Time
October - Violet Bouquet
November-Wildflowers
December - Holly
January 2007 - Olde English

The only two patterns in the series I don't have are Bountiful Acorns and the Sweetheart Roll so if any one has these and would like to do a trade, feel free to drop me a line :)

I've heard from Christine that the friendship parcel I sent her arrived in Canada safely the other day. I stitched Friendship by JBW Designs for Christine, and got the inspiration for the finishing from the Shepherd's Bush Attitudes series.

I had a little bit of money come my way unexpectedly at the end of the week so decided to have a little splash out while Stitching Bits and Bobs had another sale on. I ordered the latest three Lizzie Kate Blessings and 2006's Just Be Claus, Coop and Hutch from Bent Creek's Spring Snapperland, Little House Needlework's Season of Growth, Moon &Stars, The Bookshelf, City Stitcher Country Stitcher just to name a few treats!!!

Unfortunately I don't have any wips pics to share today as there's a lot of secret stitching going on here at the moment. I do have an update of part 2 on Stitching Leporello to share as soon as the weather improves here and I can get outside to take a decent photo of my progress so far. Eeekkk, part 4 is due out in a few days, lol.

Love your needleroll Katrina and the piece you stitched for Christine is gorgeous! Do the finishing instructions come with the Be-attitudes series?

Wendy said...

The needleroll is beautiful. And I love the Friendship Pillow you made - what a wonderful gift. And your finishing is superb. Great work!

Lisa said...

I love the needleroll. I'm going to try to join you in July. I fizzled out last time. :)

The exchange package you sent is amazing! I love the way you finished the Friendship piece. It's always fun to see new ways of finishing things.

Looks all great Katrina. I have both charts you are looking for. If you have a few months the time. I can trade tham as soon as I stitched them, which will be this summer. First I have to get some other things out of the way, but I think around the end of summer I can trade them away.

These Sweetheart Tree needle rolls do look mighty fine when stitched up. Congrats on your finish. The exchange you sent is gorgeous, another finishing method I will have to file away into the deep recesses of my memory!
Oh BTW you are just too organised!! LOL.
