Paul Shell Needle Roll

While I was sorting through my stash I found this chart, along with the dyed cottons with it, and thought I really must stitch it up - it seemed perfect for a needleroll, and therefore perfect for the first needleroll SAL for 2007 :)

Here it is before being finished up into a needleroll - not a great photo, I took it last night quickly before I finished it off.

Paua Shell Sampler - Designed by Cherry Parker
White Lugana - 28ct, I think. Finished 12 February 2007

and finished as a needleroll, it's a bit longer than I expected, and I didn't have the right coloured ribbbon, I might leave the black - or might replace it when I get near a shop to buy some more.

The kids are still off school today - expected back tomorrow. Temporary classes were being trucked there last night, I think, and the teachers are going into today to work on helping get them ready and plan out how to handle the kids etc. I think they have to finish demolishing the damaged classrooms today and make everything safe as well.

So, instead of getting down at wondering when I'm finally going to get everyone off to school and the house to myself ;0) ... a friend and I are meeting at the pools this morning - we might as well enjoy the sunshine! I'll ignore my bombsite of a house until tmorrow.

I got up at 6.30 and met my friend for a walk, I've breakfasted and showered and have a batch of muffins baking to take with us ... should be a nice day :)
