Needleroll exchange!

Andrea's needleroll for me!
My needleroll for Judith!

I joined in the needleroll exchange for the Friends Gather board and was lucky enough to get Judith's name. Since Judith is an avid quilter it wasn't hard to pick out a theme, that's usually that part that I have a problem with. I did stitch one of Marilyn Leavitt- Imblum's amish quilters for Judith and added some fabric. It arrived safely in Holland so I'm happy.
Then I got my needleroll from Andrea in today's mail. It really is gorgeous! I wish that you all could see how it sparkles! Andrea had added some yummy finishing fabric and some CC's threads.
Thank you Andrea, I will really treasure the needleroll!
We were in Kansas City last week because DH and DS went to a concert down there. We did go to a lot of nice restaurants down there including Fiorella's Jack Stack, that was yummy. The kids wanted to go to Ocean's of Fun which turned out to be a real nice day and I was even able to go to CC's and do some shopping.
I didn't pick up a lot but I found some goodies from BOAF and Valerie Pfeiffer's Three little maids.
Then when we came back we did do the Sarpy County Fair since my kid's had their projects entered there. Both of them got 2 purple ribbons and Oscar's rocket is going to State Fair.
So they were really excited.
I'm posting off another exchange today so I'm hoping I can share that with you soon!
Thank you all for visiting my blog and all the nice comments on my finishes. I really appreciate all of them. The kids only have 2 more weeks of summer vacation left, I will have more time for blogging and blog reading then, I'm really looking forward to that!

Those are both so beautiful !! Needlerolls are so cute but I haven´t ever done such. The quilter is so like Judith !! Excellent work Kajsa !
Here in our city Oulu school starts on next Friday. I know the feeling when kids are in school and you have some time for yourself.... ;0)

Fabulous needlerolls. I wouldnt mind having either one, lol. What BOAF did you get? I just love stitching them.

Julie said...

Gorgeous needlerolls! I agree, picking a design is the hard part!
CC - Oh I have a $20 gift card there! I had completely forgotten about it till I read your post. I like their store, but the one in Libery is my favorite. Enjoy your goodies.
I'm glad you and your family had a good trip.

Those needlerolls are beautiful.

Hope your children enjoy the rest of their summer holidays. They seem to going quickly this year. My girls have just over three weeks left and in that time my eldest has to go in and pick her exam results up!

Barb said...

Those are pretty. Thank you for the birthday package. I love it. I really liked the needle holder a lot. I will do the John Clayton and Margaret Sherry pieces sometime early next year or end of this. (Right now my sttiching is booked to the end of the year.) Thank you again. I have posted them on my site.
