Ornament #3 ... AKA HD #5 And a Little Hip

Well I finished that new start from Monday... it did take me all week but its done, and its pretty!

Hope Needleroll Ornament

c2005 Jeannette Douglas Designs
Stitched on 28ct Metallic Lugana Gold/Cream using : NN, Kreinik Metallics, Rainbow Gallery Very Velvet, DMC floss, Mill Hill Beads

I have to say that Jeannette does a great job using specialty stitches and fibres for maximum effect! This ornament was part of the JCS 06 Ornament RR I'm in.

Today's the Castle SAL... I'll be picking that up shortly, I don't know if I'm actually going to get much done on it this weekend. Tonight we have people coming over to watch UFC 67. Tomorrow there's the Superbowl.

Last night I had a great time! My Mum and I went out for dinner and we tried a new Indian Resturant. Oh my gosh it was to die for! Then we went to see my favourite band in concert. Last night the Tragically Hip played Scotia Bank Place. I think this is the 8th or 9th time I've seen them live. They put on a great show, and had a great mix of new music and the older hits! But they didn't play my two favourites... Nautical Disaster or Gus The Polar Bear From Central Park.

Is anyone else out there huge Hip fans like me?

Your needleroll is very pretty, I really like the purples in it.

Sad to say I've never heard of Tragically Hip. What sytle music is it they play? Glad you enjoyed the concert, but to bad they didn't play two of your favorites. Gus the Polar Bear From Central Park certainly sounds interesting.

I love the Hip. I went to Queens, how could I not like the Hip LOL

You watch UFC too ? I didn't know that ! We missed UFC67. Priorities - had to rest up for the SuperBowl apparently lol

Your needleroll is gorgeous. JD has a fabulous sense of colour and stitches. Congrats !

Hi, been lurking on the TWBB and the Needle and Thread for a while! I'm an inveterate cross stitcher as well, but also I am a HUGE HIP FAN, despite the fact that I now live in New Zealand so my hopes of ever seeing them live again are pretty thin!!!

Have you ever seen the movie "Sneakers"? I am pretty sure Dan Ackroyd's character wears a very old Hip concert shirt in one of the scenes... Its an old movie though.. sad that I know this, but true!

Great job on the stitching too..!
