The girls at the stitching club have made some lovely things for the raffle - bookmarks, a couple of needlerolls, cards and small designs in frames. I chose to make 2 noteblocks for my donation, the chart is from an old magazine, can't remember which one. The lady who runs the club is stitching the sampler for the overall winner of the show this year, wonder if DH will win it for the 3rd year LOL
My new start this month, Blackwork Dogs by X-Calibre Designs (to see the finished design click the link in Plans for Aug). Started this on Wednesday evening at the stitching club, it's really nice to be doing something different, a long time since i did any blackwork. Does anyone else like blackwork??
I received this gorgeous needleroll from Amy in the exchange at TS. It's so pretty and very ME!! I'm keen to reveal what i stitched but still don't know if mine has been received, so can't show you what i stitched yet ...
UPDATE ... it's arrived, here's what i stitched for Shirl
