Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

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) :D 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:


Summer Solstice by Eventide Designs
Stitched on 28ct hand-dyed dried thyme Jobelan
with the recommended threads

That also means finish number 11 off my 50 projects challenge list - only 39 left to go woohoo :D

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.

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" :)

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)
