Heart Roll

I decided since it was raining off and on today that I would go ahead and finish the needle roll. That wasn't exactly the smartest thing to do with 3 kids couped up in the house. Needless to say it ended up taking a little bit longer to finish that if I had waited till they were at school!

Antique Heart Roll
From Shepherd's Bush
Kit
As a general rule, I don't stitch kits because I usually run out of floss or something like that. I was reminded with this kit as to my rule. I didn't run out of floss but I came real close with the light pink. Also, I like a little more extra fabric on my sides but this particular fabric was the exact size needed....no room for any kind of mistake! Oh well, I am not complaining as I bought this particular kit at a thrift store for $1.50. :)

You got a great deal!!! Those kits are pricey for what you get.

Of course, I just love them and I think I have almost every one. This one is in my stash too, but not started.

You did a great job!

It turned out great

Such a great needleroll, Dawn - especially since you accomplished it with children all 'round. :) In a few years they will retreat into their rooms and you'll have to coax them out! No, it's not really quite like that, but they definitely begin to separate from Mom. :D

Love your snowman RR. He looks so jolly.

Harvest Witch is looking good. Love the moon:)

What a beautiful finish, I really will have to try to do a needleroll soon as I am so envious everytime I see one done.

Like you I am not a kit person - never enough fabric, often not a fabric I like, and I just prefer to choose my own colours and threads.
