Smalls SAL and G.G. SAL check-in

Hello everyone,
It´s time again for the Smalls SAL check-in hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus and late, but not too late to check-in for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL, organised by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching - see side bar for button links.

On wanting to diminish my ominously growing scrap stash, I thought I´d make a few flower themed gift tags and as my friend gifted me the little flowerpot buttons, I may include these in the G.G. SAL.

I used different embroidery stitches, like cast on stitch and my favourite French knots.

and even adventurously tried some dimensional embroidery, like these picot stitch petals with herringbone stitch leaves.

real fun here but lots more practise needed.

Then with the lovely little flowerpot buttons, I added some ribbon, beads and  more buttons.

Now they are being saved for future use.

A Hexagon giveaway

Hi everyone,
Today I have a giveaway. A hexagon table runner.

I visited my daughter in Madrid last week and took my hexies with me to sew.  I wanted to mix some crochet ones, made with Anchor Tridalia No. 8 with some fabric ones.

I found it quicker to make the hexagons than to decide how to mix and match them.

Once that was decided I added a tiny crochet edging

and backed the hexagons with green fabric.

So if anyone is interested to have this table runner, just leave me a comment below and I will pick a name on the 26th of May.  Anyone anywhere may enter this giveaway.

Until next week.
