Hello blogging friends,
I´m making very slow progress on just about everything at the moment. My start on Christmas stitching is non-existent and my trying to finish a small embroidered project for Halloween is proving all uphill.
I think I´ll put the blame on the Coronavirus, which is getting me down and when you try to buy some fun fabric for Halloween and the two local needlework shops can only show you plain black antibacterial fabric for face masks, it doesn´t help to cheer you up or encourage inspiration.
Today I´m joining Rachel of Ten Hour Stitcher for the Fully Finished Gallery SAL as I completely finished this little mermaid pocket for a friend of a friend who had seen one of the mermaid scissor pouches that I made years ago and wanted one for her eye glasses.
A tiny applique mermaid and different embroidery stitches on a very difficult to photograph fabric. The back also has a little embroidery.
This being a pink mermaid, I made the lining with pink satin and added a few seed beads to the frame
I still have quite a few of these embroideries done from time back, they are all different and I have been intermittently working on them for months now to use up the remains of the pretty fabric. I will show them all properly in a separate post.
I was going to show my finished curtains in this post but the FFGS is not for sewing, so I´ll leave them until my next post, Thank you for stopping by and looking.
