Last start of the year?

I made my excuse be the obligation to do one last thing for “Naughty November” (hosted by Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher) and started something yesterday-Stacy Nash’s Summer Garden Roll:

This is one short night of stitching on the border that shows the width. I don’t expect this to take as long as my other roll, the Bargello roll!

The roll is the companion piece to the little needle book I made last year:

I had always kept it in my project basket (as opposed to ‘cold storage’ (Ha! Do YOU have a cold storage for projects you’re not planning to do any time soon?) with a plan to “get to it” sooner rather than later. I figured now was as good a time as any. If it’s begun it stands a chance of being finished someday!

So is this the last start of the year? Maybe, if you don’t count that monogram!

  1. Love the Stacy Nash needle book, perfectly stitched and finished. I have a whole box full of that sort of ribbon, I can help but run my fingers through it from time to time, such delicious colours.

  2. That’s a lovely sewing roll and looks like it will stitch up quite quickly. The needlebook is so pretty.
    I have my “cold storage” in a cupboard and a small chest that dates from the 1990s when I started stitching! I do enjoy getting it out and reminiscing about when those charts were new to me!

    1. Yes, I think collecting charts and projects and dreaming about doing them is about as much fun as actually doing them!

  3. Oh dear, I missed Naughty November! How could I! I just love 5he name and the chance to start so many new projects! Duh! ‍♀️

    Mary I love your sewing roll, it’s such a pretty pattern, but it would take me forever!

    Starting projects is such fun, but I do hate the finishings – they can be complicated!
    I still haven’t completed my Xmas tree from last year. It’s been a strange year for me.

    I will be joining in with Jo’s blog hop too. Hoping to post before that though!

  4. Lovely start on this one and the companion is just beautiful. I have sort of 2 piles in my craft area. One pile is the ones I’d like to start soon, the others are in the “it can wait” section.
