My first needleroll is done!!!

I am really happy that i finally finished this needlroll. Thanks so much Debra for sending me the chart. I hope to try more of this in the future, just have to search if i can buy charts here in the Netherlands.
Also completed a couple of cards, actually the san man was already stitched a while back and just got around to finishing it into a card this week.

It was 'Rondje Texel' today. Been to the dyke this afternoon to see the 'catamarans'. Lots of them, about 400 joined from all over the world. I think it's one of the biggest 'catamaran race'. These are some of the pics i've taken.

What a lovely day it was yesterday in Texel. When I saw your pictures I had my DH come and look at them so we could both feel the lovely "coolness" of the ocean. Last night at 6:00 p.m. it was still 105F (39C) here.

Congrats on your first needle-roll. It's very pretty. I have never made one or really seen one except on the internet. Could you tell me what goes inside them (needles? but how?). You said you wanted to make more and wondered if they have them in Holland. Last week I downloaded one called 'Cross Stitch Pals' from Are you a member there? It's free. If you don't want to become a member but want the pattern, just PM me your e-mail address.

Hallo vanuit Leek in de provincie Groningen. Ik ben Coby en was een beetje aan het rondneuzen op het net toen ik je pagina tegenkwam. Je vraagt of je ergens in Nederland patronen kunt krijgen voor naaldenrolletjes. Kijk eens op de site
Misschien ken je die al maar als je een mail stuurt naar de eigenaresse Annemiek Koning ben ik ervan overtuigd dat je een heleboel naaldenrolletjes kunt aanschaffen, hetzij alleen het patroon of kleine pakketjes met alles er op en eraan. Deze winkel is ook twee dagen per maand open, erg leuk om een keer naar toe te gaan. Veel succes!!!!!

Mylene, congratulations on completing your first needleroll!! I have the stitching finished on my first, but have yet to finish the sewing. It'll be awhile too with my house in complete uproar these days. :D
Enjoyed the pics of the catamarans!

Your first needleroll looks lovely - watch out, though, they're addictive! LOL.
