Stitched Up One Of My Needle Roll Designs

I've been playing with my Pattern Maker Pro again and decided that I really need to start stitching some of the designs I've come up with instead of just designing my own and then stitching someone else's designs.
So without further ado, here is one of my Needle Roll designs laden with Hardanger, specialty stitches and beads.

Full view
Design: Heart & Vines Needle Roll
Designer: Sandy in MT
Fabric: 28ct. Amsterdam Blue (Blue Wing) Cashel Linen by Zweigart
Threads: DMC Color Variations 4150 Sand Dune in #5 Pearl Cotton and Cotton Floss
Beads: Mill Hill seed beads and petite beads in cream
Tied with 1/4" satin ribbon in cream

I am seriously thinking of submitting this design to one of the cross stitch magazines, but am not sure which one yet. I also have a needle case and scissor fob to match on the design board waiting for me to stitch them up.

Just want to let you all know, yet again, that I really do appreciate all of the lovely little notes that you leave behind in your visits. They keep me inspired to continue my designing and stitching endeavors.

  2. That is really beautiful Sandy. I agree, you should submit it. I see lots of patterns in needlework magazines that aren't nearly as nice.

  3. Very pretty design! If I was designing, I would certainly be stitching them instead of buying someone elses. Maybe try Gift of Stitching too for submission.
