I’ve finished my scissor keeper, it was a kit by Lorna Bateman. I added the ribbon to make sure the expensive gold work scissors did not go missing or get used for other things.
I designed the back my self.
I still have the thimble keeper to make, I thought it might be good to keep the beeswax in. I have another couple of Lorna Bateman kits waiting too.
I finally finished the roses before Christmas, to give to my Mum.
Who loved it.
The turtle dove is finished
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.
Back in August & September I had been working on different canvas stitches & a design from this picture
I have finally completed enough , to share with everyone. I have loads to do, as this piece is for my royal school of needlework certificate. Once I’ve finished the trees & sky, I have all the fancy top stitching to complete ( under the watchful eye of my tutors). I also have a border to do too, as I have lots of different stitches around the outside, to make a smooth finish around the outside, hence the line round the outside, rather than being set out with waste thread.
The leaves have been added, & now I need to work out the mounting bit. Oh & a small seed bead border.
Done a bit more to the cushion cover. I still need to track down some silver thread, that I’m rapidly running out of.
