There were four things I felt I should accomplish yesterday and believe it or not they're all done.

The first thing was the guest towel for my secret pal. Done! (colors look a little dull on the image) By the way thanks for the compliments about the pattern. If anyone would like it, just let me know & I'll mail it to you.

Secondly I had to sew the felt inlay into the needle book for 'sp'. Done!!

Next was the finishing of the halloween needle roll. All I needed to do was sew up the back, thread the ribbons & fill with poly-fil but since this is my first needle roll I thought it might be difficult & kept on putting it off. Done!!! and really not all that difficult. It turned out rather cute.

The final thing was not stitch related. I've been reading Susan Vreeland's "The Forest Lover", a historical fiction about the Canadian artist Emily Carr. I had a hard time getting into this book. Yesterday afternoon I sat outside on the patio and before it knew it - Done!!!! The further I got into the book the better it got.

Very nice! I love victorian houses. Where we use to live there was this one street that just had victorian houses on it, I would love to drive down that street.
