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.
