SAL 50: ballet shoes

I have had more time to sew in the last few weeks, as it is the school holidays, Yay! That said, I have been carrying on with other projects as well as my SAL project. But here is where I was at our last session… the project is a ballerina mouse embroidery, designed by Jenny McWhinney.

And here is where I have got up to…..

As you can see I have managed to finish off the ballet shoes – which were worked in stem stitch outline and filled in with long and short. Using wools means that they come together very quickly. I hope to have the flower completed next time and maybe a bit of the mouse.

Many thanks for popping in and look forward to catching up in three weeks time.

Happy stitching.

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.
