SAL 5 – ‘Sprucing’ it up!

Hi everyone, well since going back to school full time my stitching has had to take a back seat – including this project. So I am afraid that I have not made a huge amount of progress in the last 3 weeks. This is how my Christmas baubles looked last time…..


Now I have finished off the Japanese thread work on the pink bauble and moved on to stitching the Spruce branches. The needles were worked in closed fly stitch using 1 strand of DMC thread.

Sew……there you have it, see you all next time.

Happy stitching and a big welcome to Clare, the newest member of the SAL

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

    these so remind me of the glass baubles we had on the tree when I was a child!

  3. I still have baubles like those too 🙂 I love the delicate stitching of the pine needles.

    I know you are glad to have that difficult gold work part behind you when school started. This will finish so nicely, and you will enjoy how it relaxes you when you have a minute to stitch. It is beautiful!

  5. Slow progress is still progress, and the lightness of the spruce branches sets off the baubles beautifully.

    Adorable! I love the shiny reflections we’re seeing off the baubles.

    Beautiful! There can’t be a lot left to do now, surely?

      I have to go back over and whip stitch the branches and then add needles in a different shade of green. Then it is just the cutwork in the centre of the two baubles. Yay!

    Such a wonderful project, and I think you will get it done by Christmas! I know how hard it is to go back to full time work and try and juggle life and stitching. Well done, I think you are coping better than I am!

    These instantly took me back to my childhood and I think my mother still has some of those glass baubles. Wonderful!

    I really love this project! Those baubles look amazingly 3D and I love the colours against the fabric colour too!!
