Another Roll!

I finally made a start on my Shepherd's Bush Roll for June for my SAL with Chris:) This month I chose Thisbe's Roll which a beautiful design. All gorgeous pastel shades. I had the kit for this so it's all as kitted:)
Shepherd's Bush Thisbe's Roll

Started 16th June 2009

Finished 23rd June 2009.

Not a deal of other stitching to show this time I'm afraid. I've stitched a little something but I won't show it yet as I'm not sure if the recipient reads my blog so best not to! My HAED TT Purple Dragon was coming along nicely but now I think I may have to rethink my sub for the metallic in her face. I subbed it with DMC 3865 but now I look at it it's too white so I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do. I will have to have a look at light flesh tones and see what I can use instead. Does anyone have any suggestions please? There is already 754, 758, 3713, 3770 in her face.
Finally Bea came out again on Monday evening and I'm enjoying it again. I think stitching it two evenings a month rather than trying to stitch it every Monday each month is working better and I'm not getting fed-up of it so I will stick with doing it this way.

I was going to take part in the week long Fairy Day SAL on the HAED forum with Guardian but it doesn't include angels and as he's an angel he's out! So I'm not going to take part now and will get on with stitching other things and bring him out on Monday:)

Jess finished 6th form last Thursday! Those two years have gone so fast. It hardly seems like 5 minutes since she started. Now we have the long wait until 20th August to find out her A level results and see if she's got into the university of her choice.

Abi got her academic review from school yesterday and DH and I are so proud of her. She's doing really well in all subjects and has attained 6s and 7s in her teachers assessments. She has also been nominated for an award by her teachers so we've been invited to the year 9 celebration evening next month. She's amazed that she's nominated.

That's all for today. Hope everyone is well and having a good week.

Take care

Hugs

Sally your needleroll is gorgeous! Congrats on your daughters' accomplishments, you must be proud of them!
Did you try floss tweeding on your HAED project?

Tracy J said...

Your needleroll is beautiful as always and your haed is coming along wonderfully, love your quaker piece too.

For the skin section dmc 948 works well or possibly dmc 543 or 3774.

Those A level results will be here before you know it and you'll be driving her and all her stuff to uni even quicker.
