Rosewood Manor

I put the last stitches in today and did the cutting on the hardanger and wrapping those bars all last. This is Rosewood Manor's Past & Present done over 2 on 40ct. It takes DMC, 1 Dinky Dyes(I used a Gloriana) and 1 WDW.

All rolled up

I actually got this all done the same day as the stitching and had hoped to include the photo on that post...but I waited a bit too long to upload the photo. So here is the needleroll rolled up.

On a roll

A needleroll that is.....I've finished up and will sew up today, Shepherd's Bush beehive needleroll. I used different lace than the eyelet that was called for.

I love birds and these Victoria Sampler button up birdies are no exception....though I think the leaflet I purchased of the series is my favorite. I have now finished both in the leaflet and think I will finish them up as shown on the chart.

I can show the Victoria Sampler Heirloom Anniversary sampler since it has been received as a gift.
I did it on bellpull fabric.

Also, for a gift I pieced together and did the binding on this table runner, my mother did the cutting and quilting.

3 finishes

I love Victoria Sampler and after finishing the woodland babies thought I'd like to do the button up birdies...but I couldn't see spending $10 each for 6 charts so put out a wish for them....Joanne at 123stitch came to my rescue and had leaflet #4 up on sale and it happens to be one I really liked best so I bought it and immediately started on the bluebird. I substituted things/floss since I didn't purchase the accessory kit. Here he is...

then I stitched up this thimble case and will put it together next....here also is what it will look like(blanked out the initials so not to spoil a possible surprise)

I love JBW and thought this SNC lemongrass sage color would look nice for A very merry spring....I don't know how I'm going to finish it for sure but maybe like the model on the chart
