Yeah! I got the Shepherd's Fold needleroll kit in the mail yesterday.
You know I had to start it. I'm using my own linen that is kind of a lilac color. I'm about half done.
I was unsure of how the rick rack was going to look and if I was putting it in the right place or not. But now it is in and it is what it is. I meant to serge the edges of my linen but I haven't gotten it done yet.
I tried out the colors I was thinking of for the birdcage. Not a great photo, sorry.
I like them. I also decided to do half cross instead of cross stitch as I'm using some premium hand-dyed floss which is thick. I'm afraid this will get tedious pretty fast. We'll see if I can stick with it.
I got some wool felt for the needle page of Friesland.
I need to finish putting it on today. The tape measure tape helps me space my stitches evenly.
I had fun at the Farmer's Market today. One lady had some candied orange peel.
I couldn't resist getting some and eating three pieces on the way home. De-lish!
