Hi everyone and a very Happy New Year to you all. I should have done this post days ago to complete my stitching for 2015 and include any one of these following small patterns as part of the December Smalls SAL.........but somehow the time just disappeared and I woke up to find that we are now in January.
I expect everyone has seen on various blogs these past weeks this free design of the Twelve Days of Christmas offered by Paulette Stewart at the The Plum Street Samplers and which I decided to stitch as a table runner.
I chose these DMC colours and had to use 40ct linen as my local shop didn´t have a lot of choice and no 28 or 32 ct. I started out OK but...
With several designs stitched, I realised I didn´t like the colours, but there was no turning back and I did find a pretty trim that I thought might help me like the work more.
With a strip of fabric added between patterns and the trim sewn in place, I started to like the table runner a bit more.
and with a rush, I managed to finish it in time for Christmas but still not happy with the colours and as nobody seemed to notice or comment on it at home, I think this table runner will be put away indefinitely.
Thanks for passing by, always grateful for your visit and comments. until next week.
