Blueberry Needleroll finishing HD


Here's the fifth Sweetheart Tree needleroll I've done. Only eight more to go! I'll have to take a picture of my little needleroll collection.

I'm having trouble working on larger pieces right now. I can't keep my stand in the living room because Logan loves the thing. I have to drag it out every night I want to stitch, and often I'm not spending a lot of time in the living room anyway. So that makes smaller projects easier to work on since I can take them with me. I have the urge to do some Halloween smalls, but I'm missing some beads. Hm.

Many thanks to Lee for the links to the ort bags. Apparently they're also called scrap caddies. I'd like to make one for myself eventually, and I've though about making some to sell on Etsy. But they're selling for $10-15. That's a lot of work for not much profit. I'm still thinking of some ways to make a little extra money to pay for supplies.

I love the colors in that needleroll.

I had to laugh when you said Logan won't leave your stand alone. I didn't start cross stitching again until my Logan was 3 because he wouldn't leave my stuff alone. I don't use a stand but he LOVED dumping all my floss bobbins out and playing with the colors and he was all about putting things in his mouth so I was always afraid he would eat a needle or something.
