Hello Stitching Friends,
My first Gifted Gorgeousness post for 2021. This SAL is hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching and involves showing something stitch related that we have received or have made to be gifted. We can check-in from the 15th until the end of each month. More information clicking here.
I´m joining the group today, with two stitched designs which I have finished this month and hopefully one of them will don the front of a cookery book cover I want to make for my granddaughter.
I stitched this pattern first. It is called Dame au Gâteau by La Sylphide Toquee , It looked a bit pale, so I added some outlining but I think the design will be too big for the size of the cover I have in mind.
because I want to mix and match the pattern with an assortment of purple and scarlet fabrics.
I found another little pattern suitable for a cookery book which I had half completed some time back and I just finished it off adding the same pile of little cakes from the first design and the overall size is better , so I will use this embroidery for the book cover.
I have also been knitting a few little jackets for some dolls which a friend of mine makes. The pattern is one of J. Barrett´s which I used years ago to make Barbie´s clothes for my granddaughter.
I haven´t added the buttons as my friend will choose those.
Thank you for stopping by and looking.
