Spring fever...

With two beautiful weekends behind us I was getting a bit of spring fever, and since I had to stitch something for Verona in the birthday exchange of our Dutch group, I decided to stitch her the needleroll of the "Spring fobs" pattern from Heart in Hand. Thursday was Verona's birthday and she ysterday told me she has received her package. So here is the needleroll:
I already made her Heart Fob from this pattern earlier, so now she has a set! Now I don't have that many "obligations" on the stitch front anymore, and I decided to take a break from the Fair & Square exchange for a while and so did not enter the next round. I want to focus on my own stitching and on sewing the dress for my daughters First Holy Communion on May 25. Wednesday evening I drawed the pattern so hopefully over the weekend I'll find some time to make a proof before cutting in the good (and expensive) fabric...

Lovely pattern - one I actually hope to do for myself, using Anne's recent tutorial for needlerolls on the Focus On Finishing blog. ;)

Ik wist niet dat jou dochter ook de communie doet. Mijn kinderen doen hem ook dit jaar, 1 mei al.
Ben jij ook al druk bezig met de voorbereidingen? Leuk is dat hé!

@Vonna: I'm sure your boys'll look lovely on their big day, please make sure to show pics, okay?

@Barbara: that's the same tutorial I used for this one and I can only say it was such a fun job to do. Not hard at all, and with such a beautiful result!
