April Finishing Challenge and Fun!!

***Edit: I changed the date to keep this on top, and added a goodie to the mix! (I don't have a magic needleroll... I have a needleroll stand! I love it!)

April's challenge was a needleroll with the hemstitch. I was a little worried about getting this one done. I have some in my 'to be finished' that don't have the hemstitch, (not my favorite stitch), but, thought I would start a new one. This reminds me of a Just Nan design with the colors... Here is my monthly contribution:

February 6 Design / 2008 Cross Stitch Calendar
Fabric: 28ct. Lugana - Bo Peep Pink -
Fibers: DMC w/ a few MH beads

Start: 04-23-2008 - Finish: 04-29-2008

Now... here is the fun part!!! This needleroll is NOT perfect!!! But, if any of my visitors would like to take a chance to win this needleroll, and a few other goodies... please post a comment to this post!

** added a knitted dishcloth to the pile!

I will have Chuck draw a name on Mother's Day for a winner! Good Luck!!

Thanks for looking!

Your needleroll looks pretty gorgeous to me - I was admiring it on Becky's finishing challenge site last night (I'm way behind on my blog reading). I'd love to be included in the drawing if that's OK :)

What a beautiful needleroll, and the dishcloth is so pretty as well. I've only recently tried to knit a dishcloth, and I love using the two that I've finished.

Beautiful needleroll, well done! I failed miserably on that challenge as I didn't even attempt it!
