The People´s Choice SAL - April

 Hello Everyone,

I´m joining the People´s Choice SAL today, hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  I´m really very late as it is celebrated on the first weekend of each month but as the check-in coincided this month with Jo´s Easter blog hop, I have left this post until today.

Our theme for April  is Blue  which is a favourite color of mine and I have stitched loads of things with this colour, so here are just a few of them.

I was gifted this pattern by Irmeli.  it´s a design by V. Enginger found in the magazine Fil en Aiguille of 2009  and I used it to make this little zipper bag to hold tights and stockings etc.

I completed a hanging scissor holder with this tiny design found in a magazine..

Another design found in a magazine decorates my old kitchen clock.

Round six of Mabel Figworthy´s Round in Circles Hardanger Sal, included some interesting new stitches for me,  Eyelash stitch in the centre of the design, Ribbed spiders webs and Y-bars, and then I added lots of beads and lace to make a blue pouch.

Delicate Essentials Hardanger needlebook design by Mary Hickmott, a beautiful pattern which I loved doing.

Medieval bookmark gifted to a friend.

I´ve seen this pattern many times and used it to complete a little thread holder but have no reference as to where I found it

A folder I covered to hold trims which has very little blue embroidery, just a few blobs of color here and there and the rest is mainly white embroidery, beads or lace.

And lastly a small blanket that I made for my grandson when he was tiny, lots of different applique animals.

Thank you for stopping by and looking.
