Some pictures and an update

 This is my second attempt at The Birds Of A Feather stitching, I had to rip out so much just because I was off by one stitch, oh how that hurt I thought I was doing so well, I am going to make sure I have the correct amount of stitches and finish the border first then on to the rest of the stitches. This is  With My Needle & Thread, three part series I love the size and the beautiful colors, I recieved this as a Random Act Of Kindness from Patty Hurwitz at The Stitchersvillage, another site I am in love with it. Please stop over at the Village and take a look.

 Connie at Hoppblogger asked about needlerolls, I have several I have made more but gave them away, I have used needleroll patterns and made needlerolls from other patterns, I do have a few more and will post more pictures in the future, the one above is about nine inches long one of my favorites, I use needlerolls for different  stitching get togethers.
 This basket is sitting on my table under my kitchen window, I do change them for different seasons, I did leave the snowman in the middle of this basket for Connie I hear she likes snowmen.
 This one sits on my tea room floor, my husband calls the living room the tea room because it is so bright and sort of pink, maroon and dark blue, we donot have a t.v. in this room it is only for sitting and reading and stitching I do have five areas I stitch in, during the summer I stitch out side on the front porch or the back deck when its not to windy or hot.
I stitch in the family room downstairs I can look out to the fairway and see golfers go by they wave sometimes, I sit in my sewing room depending on how much I have to do in there with stitching.
I do sit in the office and stitch in between calls from patients clinics hospitals and customers I am a chauffer but also a jackie of all trades for Allina the company I work for.

So sorry about the pictures I took pictures at night something I donot normally do,
I will post again this week more pictures of a couple of things I am working on.

Blessings to you all

What a bummer that you had to frog so much. Hopefully it will work out fine from now on.

Oh Catherine, I had to rip out some of my border on my Mystery Sampler border too, as you read on my blog, when my dear "Froggy" came to visit! It will all come out beautifully in the end!

Your needlerolls are just beautiful! I have loved stitching them too and have a collection for all of the different holidays and seasons. So much fun to make and display, aren't they?

Blessings for your week ahead!
