Fully Finished Gallery SAL - May

Hello Everyone,

Another finished project for the Fully Finished Gallery SAL, hosted by Rachel at The Ten Hour Stitcher.

This is a pattern that I stitched months ago and finished months ago too but never got around to making it into anything useful.

The pattern was a free one from the Yahoo group `The Stitch Specialists´ called Spring Basket and released some years ago.



As always I enjoyed doing the speciality stitches, namely the pansies done in Ray stitch, the primroses in Jessica stitch with modified Smyrna and basket stitch.



The pattern also included seed beads dotted all over the place but I left them out, Sorry about the unclear photos, they are ok until I upload them.


I thought to make a bag to fully finish this piece of stitching as it is ages since I made a zipper pouch - nearly forgot how to complete and turn the lining and had to look at a couple of tutorials on the internet.



I found a plain piece of purple fabric in my stash which would serve as lining and a scrap of yellow for contrast but I had to buy a prettier purple print for the main fabric.

A yellow zip completed the pouch.



I´m way behind with my blog visits and commenting as I have been away visiting my daughter. I hope to catch up this weekend and apart from answering past comments, see what everyone has been up to.
Happy stitching.
Sheryl

  4. I am so glad to see your beautiful zip bag. I am always wondering what to do with some of the small pieces I stitch. This is a great idea. Then you can carry a cute cross stitch project in it!

    1. Barbara, the zip is just an ordinary yellow one bought locally - those that you buy by the metre and struggle to put the puller on :-)

  12. Thank you for joining in the FFG SAL again. Your little stitched piece is lovely and the perfect excuse for making an equally lovely and perfectly coordinating zipper pouch. It's definitely a good place for storing some little goodies! :)

  14. I always love seeing mauves and purples and yellows dancing together. They are perfect for each other, are they not?? Your little pansy stitchery is so sweet and beautiful and shines on the front of your darling little bag. Honestly, every time I visit your little embroidered place, Sheryl, you put a smile in my day.

  21. Oh, I love pansies and the colors you've chosen to make your pouch out of are just perfect for highlighting them, Sheryl. Your attention to the little details is always so wonderful. I'm behind on everything too with all of my travels. I finally should be home for the next two months--can't wait to just relax and stitch and read :) Enjoy your week! ♥
