SAL 58: Back on track

Hi everyone, so I think that I am finally back on track with everything and have made a little (very little) progress on my little mouse design by Jenny McWhinney. This is where I was up to last time …..

And this is where I am up to now……………..

As you can see I have added the little blue birds and made a start on the bullion roses. Bullion knot is not my favourite stitch and I have been putting it off for a while!

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.


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.

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.

    Oh I love that little blue bird! Your bulliion roses are beautiful. Frankly they intimidate me.

  4. You’re brave to tackle those roses. What a beautiful result!

    Your satin stitch is fabulous! The bluebird looks so sweet!

  6. I agree about bullion knots, but the roses are looking so charming that it was worth the effort!

    what a ‘tweet’ bird and those tiny roses are beautiful 🙂

  8. The little mouse’s smile seems even wider now she has the bird to look at. I have only done the odd bullion knots but each time I struggle wiwth them, they are certainly not an easy stitch, so well done as yours are very neat. x
