Finishes, Needlerolls

2nd post today …

I’ve been on a stitching roll (no pun intended), and managed to both start and finish the stitching of my needleroll for this weekend’s SAL. I stitched Summer Solstice by Eventide Designs. I changed the wording, though, to cover the summer months ‘down under’ – instead of stitching June, July, August, I recharted the wording to be Dec – Jan – Feb (after checking out the Winter Solstice chart online) ๐Ÿ˜€ I wasn’t too sure what else to put in place of the ‘American’ flag on the top band, and I quite like it anyway, so left it as it was designed. I’ve been really keen to stitch this ever since I bought the chart, so I’m thrilled to finally have it completed. I’ll wait to do the actual finishing when I have a few needlerolls to make up. Anyway, here’s the stitching piccie:

with the recommended threads

That also means finish number 11 off my 50 projects challenge list – only 39 left to go woohoo ๐Ÿ˜€

Next up is to get a few more stitches into a birthday gift – now my Kreinik braid is here I need to get cracking and get it finished. Then I need to get a few more Christmas ornies stitched. Housework? … What housework??? LOL.

  1. Your needleroll turned out really well Anne! I love your fob for Su as well – is it a Sweetheart Tree one? The colours are so pretty and I love the pink “roses” ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Congratulations on your finish! My, you are quick ๐Ÿ™‚ And, you are making awesome progress on your challenge…I’m inspired to try that myself beginning in January!!

  3. Both of your projects today are beautiful, I absolutely LOVE the fob, and the needleroll will make up beautifully!

  4. wahoo Anne, another finish, and a lovely one too, look forward to seeing your needleroll all made up. (You’ve reminded me that I’ve only got this one in the series left to stitch, Kath and I stitched the other seasons as a SAL together a few years ago but didn’t quite make it to “summer”, lol)
