Schoolhouse Needleroll - Shepherd's Bush

Firstly, a quick thank you to each and every one of you who leaves comments - they are all appreciated! If you haven't done so already, do think about signing up for my first round of "Pay It Forwards" - there's a spot left!

This is my schoolhouse needleroll finally made up after all the anguish of the red colour running - it doesn't look too bad although really close inspection will still show a pink tinge around the apples! I couldn't find a small enough bell charm for the schoolhouse, so it is silent for now. However, I think it's quite appropriate - I was reading a local history booklet about the history of my primary school, and it mentioned there that our school bell was stolen one night - I'd forgotten that! It was a bit of a nine day wonder in the village - it was a very small place! - and instead of being called in from break and lunch by the bell, the teachers had to use whistles. It just wasn't the same!

Love this needleroll.

Well you are doing better than me with the PIF sign ups! I've only got one so far! Hoping I get more but if not I'll just do a couple of giveaways.

You wanted to know my likes and dislikes. I don't really like cutie stuff like Country Companions, Winnie The Pooh etc. Love Quaker stuff, Just Nan, Lizzie* Kate, Shepherd's Bush anything in that style really. Does that help? LOL! Not really sure what else to add.
