Reveal day ..

This is what i did with the Windy Willows free chart NOEL for the September challenge at JA. I had a few ideas what to do with it, then came across the ribbons/bells that i'd kept from the Lindt chocolate reindeers last Christmas. An idea formed about a needleroll type cracker. Fabric is 28ct laguna, no label so no colour name, the thread is Carries Creations Mistletoe - a special edition thread i got from Jaynes Attic.

Hope you are all having a nice weekend, did you all watch Strictly Come Dancing? what did you think this week?

Love your Challenge piece & using the ribbon/bells was inspired. Great excuse for buying Lindt choccie reindeers too. LOL :0)
Sorry, I don't watch Strictly - didn't watch Come Dancing either. Way too energetic. :0)

Great finish Julie! I always save those Lindt bells too, now I know why ;D
I enjoyed Strictly more than I expected to. I hope I look as good as Cherie Lunghi when I reach her age. What am I talking about? I wish I looked that good now!

Julie,

Your needleroll is just stunning. You really picked the perfect coordinating floss and fabric for it.

Could you e-mail me? I have a question for you.

I wish you a very nice week :)
