Smalls SAL - July

Hello everyone,

Another little hardanger design for this month´s Smalls SAL hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus.  Each month I embroider a small pattern by Mabel Figworthy and hopefully make it into something useful.


This pattern had some different interesting stitches, mainly eyelash stitch, in the centre of the design, four ribbed spider´s webs and Y-bars each of which I need more practice with.



I have quite a few metal bag clasps knocking about from years back and so made a little pouch and added a scrap of lace and beads to match the thread and lining fabric.



This is now added to the other embroidered gifts I have ready, maybe for Christmas, wish I could get some of my UFOs finished too..... but we will think about that later....


There is a button on my sidebar which takes you to Stitching Lotus in case you are interested in joining us each month with a small stitched piece and also a button to the Round in Circles SAL hosted by Mabel Figworthy.    Thank you for visiting.

Linking to Martina´s Patchwork with Stitchery.

  14. It is beautiful, Sheryl!! :) I always find interesting finishes here. I like the way you added the beads so that it is easy to stitch from the front holes without plain stitches showing up.
