End of Summer Holidays

Hello everyone,
Whilst most of Spain is enjoying a wonderful summer with hot sunny days and temperatures sometimes just too high for comfort, those of us who live on the north coast have been rationed with only four days of sun during July and about the same this month, so I have had plenty of time during my summer break, between journeys and visitors, to get some UFOs finished.

In the Dreaded Drawer, I found a tiny embroidered design and decided to make an ornament.

A very simple pattern with an unremembered original destiny, so to add a little interest, I delved into the button box and found some ideal mother of pearl buttons.

which I added very generously to a piece of lace which was then trimmed and used to surround the ornament.

and I like it, really like the result and have it hanging by my bed, so I will probably use it as a pincushion when I embroider in the evenings.

I´m only one day late to join Heather at Stitching Lotus for the August Smalls SAL check-in, so if you have some little design or embroidered piece that you would like to show, just head over to Heather for the details.

Until next week, happy stitching.
