Needleroll finishing



I finished off these two Sweetheart Tree needlerolls this weekend. I've done seven so far. Brenda Lou asked if I was doing these as presents. Nope, they're all mine. I'd like to finish the entire series someday, which means six left to do.

I'm going to work on finishing my two Jeannette Douglas ornaments next. Matt's dad is visiting until tomorrow morning, and Mom's in Louisiana until probably Thursday, so that leaves little time for stitching. We also need to dig the Christmas stuff out of storage and put everything up.

As I thought would happen, the Stitching Bloggers Exchange Bulletin Board (SBEBB) is no more. I joined Carol's Hooked on Exchanging board/blog to get my exchange fix. :-) Looks like fun!

Your new needleroll finishes are wonderful, congratulations. I love this ST series very much and have also stitched some but never finished.

Your two needlerolls are gorgeous. I love them both. Hurray for keeping them. We need to pamper ourselves once in a while.

I admire your needlerolls: they are lovely in and of themselves.
But, since I am in the middle of The Sweetheart Tree's Holly and Heart Sampler [I am on row 13 of 25], I know just how much work goes into one of Sandy's pieces. She is the Queen of Back-stitching, all of it perfectly symmetrical and beautiful when finished but a rather fussy job when stitching.
You did a beautiful job!
