A Needleroll finish

Well I had hoped to show you my needleroll which I finished off at the weekend, but for some reason I am getting an error code which I must report so that Blogger can fix it. So I'm afraid you'll have to wait. Although I have put it in my stitching album, so if you really need to see it now, you can click on the link on the right.


I'll have a go at uploading a couple of different sorts of photo's and see if that works.
Well, that seemed to work fine. I live in an area severely affected by flooding, fortunately my street was OK, but here's a pic of the flooding in my back garden. (The flooding I had was very minor, as there are lots of people now homeless, and won't be able to return to their homes for months!My house is about 3 foot higher than my garden.) And the other photo is the playing fields opposite where I live. Both were taken through double glazing and heavy rain, but I used the zoom, so they appear a lot nearer to the house than they are. As you can see the field opposite has turned into a lake, and someone had to put their dinghy on it and row! Don't you just love the colour of those Hydrangea's in the front garden?

I've seen the needleroll Chris and it's stunning, very pretty and delicate, can you tell me who the designer is please?

Your pics of the flood are very sad, there is such a lot of damage everywhere, it looks like the folks in the dinghy are having a bit of fun though ... happiness out of a sad situation

Glad that you've not been too badly affected by the floods!

The needleroll is lovely - quite elegant.
I can't believe how quickly people seem to get boats out when there is flood water???

So pleased you are OK Chris. I thought about you when I saw all the flooding in Hull. There have been some houses affected here., particularly down Hull Road. We are high up so we were OK.

Flooding is such a scary thing. I'm glad your house is safe. They've been pumping water out of our neighborhood to prevent any flooding from occurring. Stay dry!!

So glad you are one of the safe ones Chris and hope it doesnt get any worse. We too are fine though like you water has been in the garden a few times.

I cant find your album so will look forward to seeing the needleroll real soon.
