Smalls SAL - May

Today is check-in day for the Smalls SAL hosted by Heather at the Stitching Lotus. and I made these little embroidered thingys .... well the same as scissor fobs really but they are to hang from the cabinet doors in the bathroom



Not very keen on the colour of the tiny seed beads but I chose them to match the bathroom curtains and they are a change from my favourite pinks.



A quick and easy tiny design.  I robbed the two larger beads for the tassels from a necklace of mine as I thought they were ideal and the necklace is now only just a little bit shorter.





If you would like to join the Smalls SAL and stitch a little something each month, just click on the sidebar button which will take you to Heather´s blog and all the information.

Thimble Exchange

This year I took part in the Decorative Thimble Exchange organized by Kim at Wisdom with Needle and Thread.  My swap partner was Jo from Australia and this is what she sent me.


Apart from the pretty thimble from Bendigo Victoria, Jo also generously enclosed a very useful notebook and the lovely little handmade purse.  Thank you Jo.


Until next week,  Happy stitching,

  26. Hello Sheryl! Oh, how lovely your thimble collection is looking! I was just telling my mother the other day how you collected thimbles and what a fabulous variety you have...I will have to show her the above picture so she can see for herself:)
    And your stitchery is stunning! Funny how you said you wanted to use a different colour for a change...I am exactly the same and have to try very hard to move away from pink once in a while! :)
    Hugs to you and much dear love!

  30. Your ornaments are so lovely, at present I'm running on one foot around the house to find a place where I could hang something like that maybe in hardanger stitching. So sophisticated!
