I learnt today that Marion has received the needle roll that I stitched for her in the Hooked on Exchanging needle roll exchange. It was only the second one that I've made and I stitched Aion Designs "In Praise of the Needle" with some modifications. I substituted the pinks in the design for violets - DMC 3743, 3041, 3042. The lettering was stitched in 3740 instead of 3835, I thought this a more pleasing colour scheme that fitted with Marions likes and also toned together well. I also used white Mill Hill beads 40479 instead of the recommended cream ones. I also sent some extras but forgot to take a photo of those. You can see what I sent over on the HoE blog.
