Woodland Sal

Not so long ago I started one more Sal, although I promised myself that I would not start any new work until I had finished all the work I had started. But how could I help myself when Kate Worthington announced she was organizing a new Woodland Sal by  Durene Jones pattern? And so, I can show you two parts of this Sal anyway: an Owl and a Rare.

The thread I used is DMC as always but the fabric was speciał created for this Sal.  I use evenweave 32 count.

Marigold Postcard

Our last order was Marigold Postcard, which has gone today to Northern Irelan. It is a “Thank you” card from a granddaughter named Marigold to her Grandmother and Grandfather, so there is a nice inscription on it.

I’d like to share with you some more pictures about making a postcard. After I’ve stitched the flower and inscription, I washed it (in cold water with delicate detergent, using, for example, my shampoo for colored hair) and left to dry, but not to the end, because after some time I ironed stitching on the left side. Ironing straightens up crosses, they become more beautiful and equal. Then I fasten simple white paper on the back of embroidery with the help of Double Sided Tape. Next, I cut a passe-partout with my new scalpel and fasten embroidery to it (with the same Tape).  That’s almost all 🙂

Irish Crochet

Lately I am passionate about Irish crochet and instead of finishing a collar, I constantly crochet different elements, such as these white flowers or colourful leaves. DMC white and  variegated thread 20, Clover hook number 0,75.
