It's time for the March update of the Small's SAL.
I've been doing quite a bit of stitching that I keep forgetting to take pictures of and since I am amazingly slow in the finishing department you get to see the before and hopefully here soon the after in another post.
First off I stitched my Love Love design, you can find the chart here: Love, Love Design.
Designed By: Sandra Longan
I stitched this on an unknown piece of mauve evenweave, it's real thick with an almost felted back. I picked it up in a second hand store several years back and have never figured out what it is called. I used all DMC threads and some charms and buttons that I've gotten over the years. The fabric will be the backing and as of now it will be made into a wall hanger.
I've also gotten the bug to do Hardanger again and since it's been a while I started out small.
The fringed piece will be a pin pillow when finished, the multi colored piece will most likely turn into a scissor fob and the piece on the Ribband will be a jar or can wrap with fabric flowers in red, white and blue.
The two Hardanger pieces were stitched with no pattern just looking in my Hardanger book for a refresher update on the stitches used, on 28 count evenweave using DMC Color Variations and Mill Hill beads for the aqua piece and for the other Caron Wildflowers in Carnival. The Ribband piece was also stitched with no pattern and stitched on 14 count 1 inch Ribband using Caron Wildflowers in Night Sky and Chili, DMC B5200 and DMC Variegated Yellow. I didn't put stars on the flags since I couldn't get the colonial knots to look right.
Well that's it for this post, so until next time .........
Thank you for stopping by and do come again.
Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
