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 ...it´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.
