My Needle Roll and a Green Tomato.....



In between
 my bears
 and
 my
 stitching
I am
 working
 on 
my 
new wool
needle
 roll...
It has
a bit
of pink,
a poem,
a little 
doll that needs hair
and clothes.
There's a
stuffed
green
velvet bean,
not sure for what?
I just love making
velvet
 veggies.....
my bird has
a velvet
raspberry!
I made a giant green
tomato,
for pins!!!

I LOVE your needle roll. But, also that velvet tomatoe. I would love to learn to do some of that sort of thing. Your last post gave me an idea for a post... I found some of my unframed cross stitched things. I should share that. Soon. In the meantime... have a wonderful Labor Day my friend.

How cool is this?! You told me your bear is traveling light, well he is soo welcome here, that doesn't matter at all. I will tell you as soon as he arrives here, hopefully safe and sound. And I want you to know that I have won more prizes, but never did so many people congratulate me, even a bit envious, than this time! Compliments to you of course! Enjoy!

You know me...I LOVE the acorns - and pincushions! Beautiful needle roll and green tomato! Are they your own designs? For sale? Please do tell!

Also, in answer to your question...
"Frogging" is any time you have to unstitch...(ie. ripit, ripit)...knitting, crocheting or sewing. I know, it's a little lame, but a lot of us use it in this neck of the woods. ;-)

Blessings,
Donna

MB:
Thanks for the notes about the patterns. I'd love something "acorn" by your hand!
Email me through my "click here to email me" envelope on the left sidebar of my blog and I'll send you my address! We could do a swap just between the two of us! Tell me what you'd like from me. ;-) (one of the Birds Nest Button Jars, perhaps?)
Blessings,
Donna
