Over the weekend I decided to experiment a little and try a needleroll. I have a step by step tutorial which I kept looking at, then I would put it down with the typical saying "I'll try that another time", well this time I did it. I dont own a sewing machine yet, so I had to do the seams etc by hand, and even though the hem stitching seemed a little daunting and it was hard to follow the pictures of this method, I did finally manage to get the hang of it.
I was really pleased with the end result and feel confident making others. Here is a pic of my first needleroll.
I also managed to get some work finished on a robin, but it was too hard to take a really good photo of my section.
I also received my chart order from 123stitch. I'm really looking forward to starting on some of these pieces, I have plans for a couple and some of the others I just really liked the look of when I was looking through the site. I noticed after placing my order that I must have had a thing for bunnies that day, as alot of the charts have a bunny in them.
