I really wasn´t looking for any more stitcheries to do other than that of a festive Christmas nature but I happened upon Lesley Teare´s Birds and Blackwork flowers SAL and also the floral Anthea SAL, both of which I would like to embroider.
So of course, I just had to start one of Lesley´s patterns and leave the Anthea SAL until next year.
I have lost interest in my unfinished kitchen curtains,, but I dragged myself to the sewing machine one afternoon and sluggishly worked on them until dusk, and while adding a crochet doily to the curtains, I thought to also add one to a bookcover with some tiny crochet flowers.
Lots of patterns and tutorials on the internet to make these tiny flowers , You can find loads at All free crochet. I love them, quick and easy to crochet and you can brighten up all sorts of embroideries by adding a few…..
I added some here years ago on this hoop holder
And here on a patchwork block for Shez
I stitched a little pearl bead in the middle of each crochet flower
And lined the cover with fabric from stash
Some end of summer beauty.
Until next time,
