Not a huge amount of progress on Garden Pleasures in the last week, just the grass and words. I have also added some french knot eyes to the girl, which I think is a great improvement, they bring her to life. The photo is clickable for a better view.
I'm also stitching my first needleroll. Chris was going to help me out by doing a SAL with me as the "finishing" had always put me off doing one before. However, as a needleroll exchange was being offered on the Hooked on Exchanging blog, I thought it was time I had a go, but Chris was unable to SAL with me just now, although she did offer to help me out with the finishing. Many thanks for that Chris, I will be e-mailing you. However, my friend Colette came over for the afternoon last Saturday so I asked her to show me how to hemstitch. Now that I know how to do that I feel so much more confident that I can do one, so this morning I went ahead and signed up for the exchange. Wish me luck please! Oh, and the needleroll that I'm stitching? It's The Sweetheart Tree's Violet Bouquet needleroll.
Many thanks for all your lovely comments last time, and a warm welcome to all new readers.
