Marie, my Frosty Friends Exchange partner from Connecticut USA, sent me this beautiful needleroll. I am elated to receive this as I have never seen or own a needleroll before. I spent many hours admiring it last night.... lol.
It is a cute snowmen design from Heart in Hand titled 'Winter Fobs'. She stitched it on 32 ct linen using Weeks Dye Works and DMC floss.
The finishing of her work is superb and the stuffing is just right for this cute needleroll. She also includes a handmade tissue holder (see the happy snowman print...) and extra goodies for me. Marie has provides a link at her blog for the tissue holder instructions. Visit her blog if you are interested.
For this Frosty Friends Exchange, our design must have at least one snowman in it.
I decided to try something new for Valerie. I chose these two cute designs from Prairie Schooler. The red ornament is from the Christmas Day chart while the green ornament is from the Button Up chart. Poly pellets are then used for the stuffing and handmade cordings are then sewn round it.
This is my first attempt creating my own cordings. I am pretty please with the turn-out.. however I think I can still do better lol... Oh yes.. and I have a chuck of un-successful messy cording laying inside my cupboard. Hmmm... what should I do with it..
