On the 10th of each month Rachel from Ten Hour Stitcher hosts the Fully Finished Gallery SAL, which encourages us all to completely finish and give a use to any abandoned stitching we might have.
As we are still enjoying lovely sunny days here in the north of Spain, I´m sharing a summery beach pattern started a very long time ago, around 2006 (as the magazine testifies) and which only needed 2 or 3 rows of stitching to be completely finished. By the way the magazine is Labores del Hogar.
My daughter, who paid us a surprise visit a couple of weeks ago, suggested that I used the embroidery to make a little tote bag.... which she quickly claimed when finished..
I knew I had some red striped fabric in my stash which would go perfectly with the design but it was just a scrap and I had to struggle and juggle about with the fabric to make the most of it, so the stripes are only on the front part, the back is plain neutral linen.
Another piece of red gingham was ideal for the lining but...
I hardly have any red material left in my stash at all and I´m adding the need to my grocery list pinned to the fridge, so I won´t forget to buy some before Christmas when it will definitely be needed.
Kitchen curtain update
My curtains are still on the back burner, I thought that they were nearly finished but my daughter gaily told me that they need to be a bit longer, sigh -
of course she is right. I have the problem that the kitchen window is next to the back door window which makes uneven length curtains, one long and the other short.
But I will get there sooner or later. Enjoy a lovely week everyone.
