Smalls SAL - July

Hello Everyone,
It is the last Friday of the month and time to join Mary of Mary´s Thread for the Smalls SAL check-in, but I have no recent stitching to show.
I have been busy sewing cushions and pillowcases this month which I am sure nobody wants to see - well maybe the cushions when they are completely finished, so to be able to join you all this month, I found some stitching that I hadn´t shown on this blog before.



and I hadn´t shown these two pincushions before because I don´t like them at all.  I saw them in a needlework magazine last year.


and fancied making the two different shaped cushions as they included ribbon embroidery which I hadn´t done for ages.
I had some ribbon in my stash and I chose a purple and pink combination with scraps of matching fabric - big mistake.


I didn´t like the colours at all and even less with the added trim, but they were fun to embroider and might come in handy as gifts.



I´m away on holiday next month so won´t be blogging again until September.  Hope you see you all then.  Happy Holidays.

The Fully-Finished Gallery SAL - July

Hello Blogging friends,

Just a couple of items to show this month for the Fully Finished Gallery SAL check-in today hosted by Rachel of Ten Hour Stitcher.


As many other stitchers, I embroidered or started to embroider the Snowflower diaries Joyful World Calendar collection some time ago, but still to date haven´t finished all the different months.



However, I will get around to it eventually and in the meantime I used two of the patterns to make project bags. March and April.


I desperately wanted a red zip to sew the March design but it was a Sunday with local shops closed, so I had to use what I had on hand.


Maybe the beige zip doesn´t look too bad, but a red one would have been better.
The plastic was easier to sew than I had thought, no problems at all, just had to remember not to iron it.


The April pattern was finished in the same way and I made it the same size.



These bags are going to be useful to store the various stitcheries that I seem to have knocking about in different stages of completion.


Well now to see what you have all completely finished this month.
Thank you for looking, until next week.
Sheryl
