SAL 62: A new start…

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. I have decided to go with a completely new project for the SAL – it includes lots of different elements and the 3D aspect that I have been missing. The little peacock sewing etui below is designed by Jenny Adin-Christie. As you can see…. there are lots of new and interesting techniques to learn.

So I have actually made a start on this little fellow – albeit I haven’t got that far… I have just started to add some padding to the tail feathers.

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.
