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.
Excited to share the latest addition to my #etsy shop: Great Tit Counted Cross Stitch Pattern | Bird Embroidery Pattern https://etsy.me/2T83QrU
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 🙂
The 4th part of the Cottage is ready
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.
