The next step on Friesland is the eyelets.  There are 24 of them.  I thought I would try one.  So I did.  But coverage looked a little thin.

I better reread the directions.  Oh no, I didn't use the right thread.  So I took it out and started over.

The right thread covers better.  So I tried another one.  Uh-oh.

 Can you see the problem?  One is closer to the border than the other.  My first one is one thread away from the border but the next two are touching the border.

I am not inclined to take out the first eyelet again.  So right now, it stays.  Twenty-one more to do.  If I do three a day, I can have them done in a week.

On a happier note, I finished the stitching on the Shepherd's Fold needleroll.

Well, almost.  There is a herringbone row between  two sections of withdrawn threads.  That's what I'm working on now.  Wouldn't it be great to get this all done-done?  I changed a few things like the writing and the color of the satin stitch row at the bottom.  It 's supposed to be green but I wanted to use the Sheep Fold color.  This was a fun stitch.
Happy Sunday!


  1. What a lovely project `Friesland` is. Looks so beautiful. I missed out on that one but after seeing your Shepherds Bush Needle roll I can`t wait for mine to come. :) Happy Stitching.

  2. That's a lot of eyelets, but so pretty.
    I knew you'd finish that needleroll in no time! :)
