Cross Stitch, Finishes

Just a quickie …

No time to really chat – just a brief update to show my latest finish … after posting that pitiful progress report the other day, I pulled my finger out and went out to pick up some cheap DVD’s to watch (namely the first season of Medium, and the films Music & Lyrics, Invincible, The Guardian and another one whose name escapes me that I can’t be bothered getting up to check).  Anyway, the result is this:

A Tiny Rose Garden Mandala – freebie by Chatelaine
Stitched on white linen with recommended threads

I also started a needleroll, seeing as it was the Needleroll SAL weekend this weekend just passed, although I don’t have too much to show for it.  I’ll keep stitching on it until it’s finished, though, even if it means getting it finished after I move out from this housesitting job.  I only have one more week left, and all my stash will be going into storage some time over the next couple of days boohoo.  I haven’t joined in with any of the needleroll SAL weekends to date this year, so it was nice to start it up again now.  I’m making sure I have at least one more needleroll within access from the storage container door, along with a couple of Christmas ornies to try to keep a couple of smaller projects on the go throughout the next few months.

Rightio, back to it again … no time to chat – time to get a few more chores done, and watch two of those movies before it’s bedtime.  And seeing as I bought the missing 2 DMC threads at lunchtime today, I can get back to finishing off the top half of my needleroll …

  1. Hi, Ann. It’s an absolute beauty! I’ve been put off by the size of the Mandala patterns, but with this smaller pattern… I’m tempted to try it out. :))

  2. Congrats on your beautiful finish! I love this design so much, I really must stitch it! I’ve never done a needleroll, so perhaps you’ll inspire me to try one too! Can’t wait to see yours.

  3. Oh, I’m so jealous. I want to be able to get in gear and finish that design, as well. It turned out gorgeous; what will you do to finish it?
