Smalls SAL - April

Hello everyone,

Today it is time to join Heather of Stitching Lotus for the Smalls SAL check-in. If you wish to find out more about this SAL, which you may join at anytime during the year, just click on my sidebar button.




I ventured to open my UFO drawer just a crack to tackle the first piece of embroidery to demand attention on seeing the light of day and I retrieved a project which had been relegated to the said  drawer on my disliking the colours I had chosen, all two of them, sigh.





So, trying to ignore the very pale butter coloured thread which is really hardly appreciable in these photos, I made a pin cushion and stitched the little scissor fob, both designs by Danybrod.



A scrap of complementary yellow polka dot fabric from stash for the backings brightened the designs and then a smattering, just a smattering of pearl beads.


and that completes my Smalls for this month.



Until next week,

Sheryl

  20. You finished these beautifully, Sheryl (as always!). I actually like yellow--have a few yellow walls in my home, but am slowly repainting them. Just a bit tired of it after 20 years :)

    Hope you have a lovely month of May!

  28. Your stitcheries are just gorgeous, and I love that yellow! Such a beautiful finish!
    I have some fabric of a similar colour, and like you, I wasn't too keen on it ..... but seeing your beautiful stitching I now have an inkling of something I can make! And yellow is so much better than blue! Well, Sheryl, I'm sorry, but you know blue isn't "my" colour, do come and see: http://theflashingscissors.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/finish-it-up-friday-post-full-of-minis.html
