Strawberry Garden and a Christmas needleroll

Here's this week's update on my Strawberry Garden SAL with Lina (do pop over to her blog to see her beautiful gingerbread house and her lovely progress!) I scanned it in this week instead of taking a photo so you could get a better idea of the colours - especially of the fabric. The fabric's 32ct Toitoi from Countrystitch and it's a lovely creamy yellow.


I've also been stitching on Terri's RR for the HAED RR, but it's just a blob at the moment. Hopefully today it'll turn from a blob into a dragon!

And in the evenings when the light isn't good enough to distinguish all the colours in the HAED piece I've been doing this - the English Christmas needleroll from Shepherd's Bush. I got this a while ago and I've been saving it for Christmas. The pulled thread ridged bit seems a bit odd but those were the instructions so I followed them! Now to make it up.


P.S. I know many of you won't be able to comment now I'm on Beta, but I hope you're still enjoying the pictures!
