Smalls SAL May

Hi Everybody,

I´m a bit late this month to check-in for the Smalls SAL but have been waiting to see if our hostess Heather from Stitching Lotus connected up.  I have been doing some sewing for my daughter recently, embroidering yoga motifs which I will show when they are finished,  so today I can only show some stitching done years ago.



The little heart pattern is I believe by Manya at Humming Needles and includes Satin stitch, Rhodes stitch, Herringbone and Algerian eyelet stitch and double cross stitch.  I embroiderd spider web roses instead of her prettier ribbon ones, probably because at the time, it was difficult to buy silk ribbon here locally.



The design was stitched mainly with DMC threads and after adding a tiny bow it was discarded to the Dreaded Drawer.



Now it has once again seen the light of day after years, I shall make it into smething useful.


Thank you for stopping by and looking.  Until next week.

Sheryl

  15. This little heart is beautiful and presents an interesting variety of stitches. It doesn't deserve to be punished or sent back in quarantine into the Dreaded Drawer. I have no doubt you will find one of the wonderful finishes of yours to make something unique out of it. Have a nice evening, Sheryl!
