Happy dances and other things

This was an extremely productive weekend for me stitch-wise. I started by going to JoAnn's Fabrics on Saturday morning. Going to those stores is always a chore for me, and I often manage to talk myself out of it. While there, I picked up the fabric for my Valentine exchange project and two potential fabrics for finishing the Sekas heart that I stitched a few years ago.

We had a Monday holiday this week, so I was able to spend a good part of yesterday stitching. I started by finishing Snow Wonderful. I'm very pleased with the way that it turned out, and it was a lot of fun to stitch.

Heather-- this pattern is by M Designs. I stumbled across it one day while browsing at the Wyndham Needleworks website and just had to have it.

I wasn't able to fix the plastic piece that broke off of my sewing machine, but I was able to use the second spool that is supposed to be for double needle sewing. So the machine works, as long as I only need to use one needle. That's good enough for needlerolls!

In addition to Mother's Love needleroll, I also assembled Spring Morning into a needleroll. I didn't get a pic of the assembled roll, but here's a pic of it after I finished the stitching on it. It's from a Victoria Sampler cyberclass that I completed in October 2004.

Wow, Juanita - I turn my back again, and look what was taking place ... your finished M Designs Snow Wonderful is gorgeous :) And congrats in getting your Mother's Love NR finished up :) But I also have to say I adore the VS needleroll too (and Mum exclaimed her love for it as she just walked past LOL). You've been having a very productive start to the year - good on you! :)

Aw man! The SM needleroll looks lovely! Just keep stitching. And SW...of course it almost knocks me out. My stitching is so much more modest.
