Old English Needleroll HD

I finished off my second Sweetheart Tree needleroll today (a little here and a little there, between chores). Yes, I'm still addicted to these things, but unfortunately this is the last one I have kitted up. I hope to get some more charts in the mail soon.

I got this one from Haze when she was getting rid of a few things. I am very grateful, of course! If anyone wants the chart, let me know (gone!). It does have a stain on one corner, but this doesn't affect the legibility.

I also got some ribbon off eBay, and now I have brown and rust ribbon for Bountiful Acorns. I really like the effect. Now I'm collecting 1/8" ribbon too!

Sickos: I'm getting over my sinus infection, just a few sniffles left (it's been two weeks since I got it). Logan took his last antibiotics today, and I'm so glad. It's been giving him red diarrhea (ew), one of the side effects. I'm glad I read the information sheet and knew to expect it; that would have been a shocker! The antibiotics also messed up his sleep patterns. He's sleeping through the night again but getting up at 5--too early for Mommy! Matt is still battling this flu-like thing he's got.

Baby: I've been trying to feed Logan rice cereal now that he's about five months old. I shovel it into his mouth, and he cries. He doesn't really have the skill yet to spit it out, so he does eat it. I'm just going to keep trying a little at a time. I also bought some rice cereal with apples, so we'll see if he likes the taste better. The doctor did say he could dislike the texture, too.

Michelle,
I love your stitching and your blog. I just rediscovered stitching last year after about a 5 year hiatus. I would love to do the neeedleroll if you still want to pass on the pattern. Please email me at jan@brutcher.net if you do. Thanks.

We tried the baby rice too, but Patrick hated it. So we just started with pumpkin, and he ate that up!

I see I may be too late to get the needleroll pattern - I have never done one but am hoping to do one soon - between that, a pinkeep and a biscornu - all new things I need/want to try. Keep up the great stitching!

Very pretty needleroll!

My sons weren't crazy about the rice cereal - they both preferred the barley or the oatmeal (although we made the oatmeal with applesauce & cinnamon in it once they were a little older!). Logan will figure it out eventually - they all do! :-)

Great needleroll.

Glad your feeling better. The first time we gave antibiotics to Aaron he had the worst dearrhea too, I'm glad it wasn't red I don't think I could handle that.

One thing I don't have to complain about is Aaron's appetite, he's eaten everything we've given him so far.

Ayame *hated* plain rice cereal. She loved it mixed with fruit. She actually prefers her food on the thicker side.
