The Needle Roll SAL

My basket of Shepherds Bush needle rolls

I have been in a year long SAL with Sally, we agreed to stitch a needle roll every month, the designs are by Shepherds Bush. I did not keep up well - sorry Sally, however we are continuing with this SAL next year - so I'll try to do better. In theory I should now have 12 made up needle rolls, and I have 9 and 2 in progress, so here they are. The pictures are dark as they were taken with a flash, maybe in the summer it might be brighter.

Snow Fall Roll

Antique Heart Roll
(I made an error in this - having left a gap for the lace,
I then stitched a band in the gap! oops, so I have added a band
of my own design, and need to decide what else to put in the gap)
I will then stitch this again as per the chart.

Garden Roll

Thanksgiving Roll

Pine Pin Roll

Folk Heart Roll

Millenium Roll

Tudor Roll

Stitcher's Roll

English Christmas Roll

Americana Roll

If anyone has any charts/kits in the rest of this collection that I can beg, borrow, steal, buy or trade - please email me or leave me a comment. I do already have some more charts/kits to stitch but wish to complete the set.

I just couldn't resist adding this mini roll to the collection.

I hope to be back later with a further update, as I have more stitching finishes to add to complete my year.

Happy New Year Chris!

Love the needlerolls, I do like to see them all in a basket. :) I don't think you did badly 9 out of 12 and with 2 just left to make up, 11 for the year. Great going in my opinion. :)
