Needleroll SAL

"Be At Peace"
Homespun Elegance

I participated in a Needleroll SAL this weekend and am happy to say that I was successful in completing the stitching AND finishing on this project. Anytime that I do not add to my growing pile of "projects to finish" I am happy. SAL's are a great motivator for me! I became aware of this SAL rather late (Friday night) and I did not know what to stitch. I quickly went through some leaflets and decided on this Homespun Elegance Design. It is not a Needleroll pattern, and I was not too sure how it would turn out, but I decided to give it a try. Fortunately it turned out okay.
I wanted to thank everyone for stopping by and taking the time to post such thoughtful comments!!!
A special thank you to Vonna for helping me with my many "blog" questions ~ you are the best!

Anyone who starts and finishes anything stitchy in one sitting is a hero/ine in my book. You did a wonderful job on the needleroll!

Hi Marie, gorgeous finish! Thanks for the tip on stitching on cording. I can't wait to see the gadget that you mentioned.
