Workshop progress

Last week I was in a workshop with Jackie duPlessis. Below is my stitched piece ready for me to make into a needleroll.
Here is the fabric, ribbon, waxer and small scrimshaw with a picture of what the finished piece will look like (I hope!!!). I ordered the ruler and thread winder scrimshaw that goes with this piece - I have no picture to share, but will show when I receive them and hopefully my needleroll will be done by then.
There is also a sweet carrying case that goes with this set - of course I had to have this pattern. And there was also a cute little thread holder shaped like a thistle.
Below is a close up of the chart picture.
The colors in this piece are just beautiful, the stitching was not difficult. We managed to put some of the guts of the needleroll assembled, so hopefully I will get this totally finished soon.

I truly had a great time at this workshop and I will post more pictures tomorrow of the other piece we worked on and some other goodies that I purchased!!!

Thanks for visiting ----- Roberta
