Smalls SAL - April

Hi everyone,

Not a lot to show this month due to starting and stopping on several projects but I have finished another UFO which I can show today for the Smalls Sal check-in. A free biscornu design by casaerba.



I started the embroidery a couple of years ago showing it on a blog post but it then got relegated to the dreaded drawer without even a start on the second side.



I used 28ct. fabric from stash and white and pink Anchor perlé thread #12 and #8.  The pattern includes, satin stitch, blanket, overcast, stem stitch, bullion, alternating stem and square stitch.



At last I completed the second pattern all in white thread.


When sewing up the biscornu, I added some sparkly fabric underneath the cutwork but it doesn´t show up on the photos, an iridescent button, which doesn´t show up either and hey presto, finished.  Thank you Erba for such a pretty design.

  1. It's hard to make shimmers and glitters show up on photos, but even without them, this looks delightful! And yet another item out of the Dreaded Drawer - well done!

    1. It is blanket stitch. A full video tutorial given on Erba´s blog (see link above) I didn´t finish the `petals´ exactly the same.
