Something new......*****Edited*****

Happy weekend my friends!!!!

*****Edited: WOW~~~~I am grateful and amazed at the number of responses I am getting about my latest Project Roll post.... Thank you guys~~~~ to answer a few questions....I have no pattern to offer... This is a self created vision of mine and each piece is custom... I will not have a stock to pull orders from...., I take your request of fabric colors and go from there... You may mail me your fabric (half yard of both outer and lining fabrics~)... If so, your price will be 30.00 instead of 32.00.... Many of you were interested in the pretty cross stitch piece shown in my roll-up... It's one of the designs from Lori Brechlin's Autumn at Notforgotten Farm book.... I love this book of her's as it is chocked full of designs and ideas... Check it out!!.... Keep the requests coming... Orders are coming in and there's about a 4 week turnaround time right now.... My complete profile has my email address listed~ I'd love to hear from you..... More to come~****** Well, ...... what's 20 inches by 14 inches, rolls up and protects???? My newly created Project Roll....!

When a customer, (thank you Linda :)) recently challenged me to put my spin on this concept, I was stepping W-A-Y out of my box.... Her comments went something like this.... "I have something I'd like you to consider... Or, you can tell me to go jump in the lake!.... But, I'd like Carolina Stitcher to come up with some kind of a roll up that I can lay my project linen flat, roll it up and secure it to keep it protected and unwrinkled....." Knowing there are a few things ready made out there like this already, I took her up on her challenge to see what I could come up with.... It ended up being less intimidating than originally thought... And, after several mock-up designs in my craftroom, here's what I came up with~

image
20 inches long..... With 2 ties to secure.....

image
Quilted cotton fabric to lay your linen on.... Rolls out about 14 inches~

image

image
Rolling up will keep your linen without fold creases....

image
The ends are secured with round, fabric covered discs....


image
Your project is safely rolled up inside....

image
Secured with nice ties... And subtle Carolina Stitcher accents...


image
Made to match your Carolina Stitcher project bag.....
Don't you just LOVE being organized??? Let me know your thoughts..... I'm taking orders and if you email me, I'll be happy to provide all the details~~ Thanks!

Headed to Chapel Hill tomorrow to attend the UNC football game!!!

Go Tarheels!!!

Love the project roll. My stitching group just recently got together and each made one. I love it! Perfect for keeping my huge piece of linen for Hawk Run Hollow neat and tidy.

Next you should think about Q-snap covers. I've got leftover fabric from my project roll. ;)

I think a smaller version would be great also. 8x10 or 10x14 inches! Combo Set!
