Look what Dawn sent me!
Here is the gift that Dawn made for me. She made it for no reason except out of the goodness of her heart. I have never owned, or even seen up close, a needleroll before and now I am the proud owner of one! It is beautiful Dawn, thank you. Dawn also sent me this pretty chart and these threads too - very unexpected extras. Thank you so much.
Some other news is that I have been excepted on the SBEBB!! Yay! I am so excited about joining this reputable group. There appeared to be two exchanges I could have signed up for. One was the Needlework Smalls exchange where you make a stitchers wallet or the Harvest exchange. I didn't look at the halloween one as I don't celebrate it. So I wanted to have a go at the stitchers wallet but decided it may be a bit ambitious for a first exchange so I have gone with the Harvest exchange. I love Autumn and all the colours it brings so this should suit me well. I am going to still make a stitchers wallet though to see how I get on with making one. I have seen one in the March Gift of Stitching mag which I would like to try out. I doesn't look too hard. I can do tiny slip stitches so I should manage it.
I have also been working on some scissor keeps/ needlecases but not sure how I am going to finish them just yet. At the moment I am just stitching the fronts and backs then I will finish them all at once. I am on my third front and nearly finished it. Perhaps if people like them I might do a giveaway so watch this space. I am feeling very generous all of a sudden.
We have our cell social tonight (sort of like a Bible study/house goup) so I have to go and cook up some food for it.. We are doing a bring and share foodwise so will be interesting to see what people bring. Okay, that's all for now. Thanks for reading and for commenting, I really appreciate every single one of you. xx
