My First Needleroll and A Lovely Exchange

This was the last month of our first round in Becky's Ornament Exchange group. I thoroughly enjoyed this exchange that Becky organized because I love to stitch Christmas ornaments.

For Becky's ornament I chose to stitch a needleroll. I had never done one before. I'm pleased with the results, and I really loved the subtle color variation in the Gloriana silk that I used.



I also received my exchange from Leah for our second round of the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange that Becky leads. Leah made me a sweet little pillow that she accented with lace. I just love it.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a fun and stitch-filled weekend.

Great needleroll. They are almost as fun to do as biscornus.

Love the PS pillow.
