This is pretty much all the stitching that I managed during the month of March to date … but at least it’s a finish which counts for my March Smalls SAL piece 🙂
“School Needle Roll” (kit) by Shepherd’s Bush
stitched on kit fabric with kit threads and beads
This month I decided to work on one of the pieces from Grandma’s Stitching Treasures by The Cat’s Whiskers. This is the scissor pocket from the set … or at least it will be once it’s finish-finished 🙂 It was really enjoyable stitching this one … now I’m looking forward to stitching the remaining two pieces – the scissor fob and the needlebook. I think the scissor fob will be the next one to be stitched.
Well, so far my SALs have been going OK this year … I managed to put the final stitches into scissor keeper late last night – I opted not to re-do all the stitching, and just decided to change the bee’s flight path so that the back-stitching was closer to the right-hand border margin. Funnily enough, though, the scissor pocket cover model looks the same as mine on the corners, but with one cross less on the top and bottom borders … so I think perhaps there was either an error on the chart, or the instructions changed at some point. Oh well, either way, it’s done now … and just needs to be made up. Next month I’ll probably do the scissor fob to match, then this little set will be done and dusted! Sorry, but I can’t get a good photo of this one for love nor money – I need to charge up the proper camera, I think, rather than trying to use the iPhone like my lazy self has gotten into the habit of using!
