Smalls SAL - July

Hi Everyone,
I have been away most of the month but have managed to finish my Language of Flowers sampler in time to join Mary of Mary´s Thread for this month´s Smalls SAL check-in.

Last month I had trouble finishing this embroidery because the lacey white border around the design didn´t show up well on the colour fabric I had chosen.  I tried a brighter white floss and even tried using two threads instead of the recommended one, but I wasn´t pleased with the results...

and in the end I unpicked all the border that I had stitched - which nearly killed me - and embroidered something quite different, flowers of course.

Just small blobs of colour and I added Ursinia for the letter `U´ which I had mindlessly stitched although not included in the chart.

I thought I had a suitable frame knocking about in the garage and I found it, perhaps painted in another colour?

Well no´s done now but I liked it better before painted, sigh.  I have to find a place to hang the sampler.

If anyone would like to stitch this chart, let me know in a comment below and I will pass it on.  I won it in a draw last year organised by Kaye of Kitten Stitching.

I am also working on making some patchwork kitchen curtains with odds and ends from my stash, this is my work so far.

Thank you for stopping by and looking.
