Wings of hope! SAL 34

Hi everyone, I have made a little bit of progress in the last three weeks, but it is small as I have been busy getting some Christmas projects finished (sorry if it is too early for some – but if I don’t get a head start, I won’t have anything ready!)

Both wings are now finished and cut out and I am currently buttonholing around the flannel inserts.


As you can probably see the left hand wing has a much better finish around the satin stitch semi circles and the shapes are more defined – maybe I should have practised before I started to sew! A lesson learnt – but I am not going to redo them as I would destroy the tweed layer beneath the stitching.

All the little elements are now completed and I can start to put my little bird together – yay! Then I just have to tackle the base!


Keep safe and well, and more importantly – keep stitching! See you all in another 3 weeks from now.

We are a small group of crafters using a variety of different techniques. Please check out the fabulous stitching by all the other members of the SAL. If you are interested in joining us you can contact Avis for details.

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....

    This looks gorgeous and the neatness on the wing I’m sure will be one of those details that only you know about once it’s assembled. I think you’ve done the right thing not worrying too much about it.

    I would never have noticed the difference in the satin stitching if you hadn’t pointed it out. Those wings are beautiful. I can’t wait to see the whole piece.

  10. Oh, how wonderful…it a privilege to see it born gradually!

    I am with you and up to my ears in Christmas projects too. Your wings are gorgeous and I am so excited to see this all come together 🙂

    My goodness, what a project! I don’t like to hear about Christmas too early but I do understand that we crafters have to get started well ahead of the event. 😀

    This project is coming along nicely! I don’t think you need to worry about the speed anything happens at this year.
