Something New

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!


  1. You will have that done in no time. :)
    The blue felt looks better on Friesland.
    Those orange sticks look yummy.
