Victoria Sampler Birthday Needleroll

Last week I started and finished the stitching of the September Birthday Needleroll kit by Victoria Sampler. It's a really cute little blue sampler that will be hemstitched (maybe this week) and made into a needleroll.  I don't think it will take much time for the final finishing, but hemstitching always takes me awhile to set up.

I'm not sure if I'll jump right into the hemstitching this week or if I'll work a little more on this Victoria Sampler biscornu that I started here.  Some of my old WIPs are calling my name as well.  I'd love to finish some older projects that I've had laying around for literally years, such as Around the World in 80 Stitches. 

These days, I've been on a small kick and there always seems to be another small kit or design calling my name as one gets finished up.  So, I need to decide to work on something a little bigger and maybe finish one of my BAPs up or work on some more smalls.  Decisions decisions....  I also feel like playing with prick and pounce set again and transferring some more designs.  

Well, it's time for me to get off this computer and get busy with some stitchin'.  

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend!

Very nicely done, Karen! Stitching up some smaller projects does help one feel like you've accomplished something!

Lovely work. I think it is time I made another needleroll.

Absolutely gorgeous!!! I especially love the rows of white scallops - they look like lace :) Best of luck with the final finishing; if you change your mind about the needleroll, it would also look nice just as is in a little banner or ornament.

I'm like you at the moment - torn between starting something small or a larger dream piece, finishing off some UFOs - or trying out more embroidery. The very best kind of decision, isn't it? :) But I've been so busy imagining stitching that I haven't gotten anything done at all LOL!
