The front is finished, I really enjoyed this, it’s quite textured. I designed my own back.
I now need to find time to make the scissor keeper, I’m thinking about adding a ribbon, to truly keep both together, after all I really need to make sure my special gold work scissors stay for gold work.
This year we decided on a pre lit pop up tree. I added some extra ribbon (like the more expensive version) but it still lacked some thing. I have been looking at the twelve days of Christmas felt decorations by Larissa Holland on Etsy & brought the pack of the first 3 ( this years offerings)
Partridge & pear (tree) are finished.
On to those lady birds now. I think I have tracked down some crochet cotton in silver that is almost the same thickness & shade.
I have a new project to practice my embroidery stitches on. I’ve chosen pink, mauve & yellow to work in. If it works out well I might make it into a cushion for our granddaughter ( hence the pink)
Here’s my progress
I’m attempting to practice covering up all those black lines & getting smooth edges.
It’s quite a fun design, isn’t it.
Done a bit more to the cushion cover. I still need to track down some silver thread, that I’m rapidly running out of.
It is finally finished & mounted. I just have the paper work & a label to make for the back. Then in for assessment at the royal School of needlework.
My hand quilting is still progressing.
