A needleroll finish





I made this needleroll last month for Hannah in the HOE needleroll exchange. I didn't actually join in the exchange, but Hannah's partner disappeared, so I offered to send her an exchange. This needleroll is partly from Carol Tinson's needleroll, which appeared in the Gift of Stitching in the summer. I missed a couple of the bands off, and then in the centre I used part of a JN design. I used DMC variations and B5200. The variations were chosen by my DD, and I was really pleased with the result.

Well, I hope everyone is doing well, in our cold snap. I've just come home in snow! My PC tells me it's 4C outside. Brrr!

Last Saturday whilst I was at the NEC, it turns out there were other bloggers there, namely Clare, Lindsay, Andrea and I can't remember who else! How about we all meet up,if we go again next year? Although I did hope to meet up with Clare, but I just didn't have enough time because of the delay in getting there.

Tomorrow, I will be going to the Knitting & Stitching Show at Harrogate, so I'm looking forward to that. I already have plans to buy fabric and scissors, and who knows what else. I've arranged to meet the lovely Colette from Col's Creations
