Needle Roll Exchange from Cathie


After spending the day at the hospital with my ill family member, it was such a treat to come home to this lovely HoE Needle Roll Exchange from Cathie :-) She stitched me a really elegant needle roll with my initials and specialty stitches, and it is so beautifully done. She even put little silk roses inside each end. She also sent me pretty floss and ribbons, as well as a lovely sachet, which I think is vanilla. I love it all. Thank you so much Cathie! The sunflower in the background of the photo is one of many that we grew from a packet of sunflower seeds that Veronica sent me in the HoE Pinkeep Exchange earlier this year - isn't it pretty?

And I finished Katrina's Neighborhood Round Robin tonight. I decided to take Michelle's lead and I added some pretty sampler motifs to fill in my block. I remembered that Willow House by Blackbird Designs had some nice ones, so I dug it back out and used it. I hope you like it Katrina. I really love it! I will get this off to An sometime next week. Only one more neighborhood left for me to stitch on now in Group Three :-)

BIG hugs (long overdue) from me, Carol. Thinking of you with lots of love.

That's a beautiful NRR you're working on!

I hope your family member is doing much better, sorry to hear that. Bri's dad, who is 85, had an infection from open wounds-not nice, and he's by himself taking a mega dose of meds. I think he should be in assisted care, but he's too stubborn.

Very lovely stitching all around!
