My stitching mojo is at the moment as elusive as our summer weather – About six sunny days during the whole of the month of August and sewingwise I can only boast of having made a skirt for my daughter from a pretty dress she disliked and taken up the hem of another skirt.
I´m doing a bit of redecorating and that includes throwing things out that we don´t need or which are rather old and I came across two embroidered holders made years ago. Here is one of them.
A “Listen Honey” cartoon by Emerson Quillin. I love these cartoons and have stitched quite a few different patterns for my friends.
Then a backing was added to the embroidery and a pretty piece of lace trim stitched all around the holder. Can you now guess what type of holder this is?
Yes, clever people, you guessed rightly…… a holder for toilet rolls. I will post about the second holder I have sewn when I get some photos taken, it´s even older than this one here.
This week I have received two delightful surprise gifts which I must show everyone. A pretty embroidery to be treasured from Lynda Ruth of Purple Pixie Dust. Thank you Lynda, I really love the colours.
And along with a gorgeous French kitchen cloth, floss and thread holder ........
......... an amazingly clever card of a kitchen made by Nadine of Jocodine.blogspot. - I couldn´t get a link to work, and will try again later -
She makes really wonderful miniatures and this little card has so many precious details perfectly constructed. (on doing this post I notice that a tiny knife is missing from the photo – but it is not lost, just escaped the photo session) Thank you so much Nadine.
Until next week.
