Hello blogger friends, Do you ever have one of those days when you at last have time to sit down and get some sewing done and absolutely nothing goes right ? or you don´t like the result and in the end the time is wasted? Well, I have had quite a few of those days recently.
It has taken me ages to get this pretty Veronique Enginger design sewn into something useful.
I started the pattern in July and thought I would use it to cover a small basket I have in the bathroom which holds brushes and combs.
but after chopping up the design to fit the basket, I didn´t like the result, so I delved into my stash and found some matching fabric
some pretty buttons, a bit of lace, a tassel and a zipper.
Apart from that sewing hiccup, I have been busy with the blackwork design called Box of Delights, a free design which can be found here. and I am also stitching Twelve Days of Christmas by Paulette Stewart, another free design found here.
This is my progress on the Box of Delights.
I chose blue/purple colours to match some tiles I have in the kitchen, and this is for a kitchen tray, but I am not very keen on the black surround which I find too heavy for the colours I am using, so might end up covering the dark stitches with fabric, we will see.
Hope you are all busy stitching, thank you for passing by.
