SAL 64: A little progress

So I this is the post that I thought I had scheduled to post three weeks ago whilst I was on holiday – but unfortunately I must have done something wrong and when I got home it was still in my drafts posts! So I am using it this time around as I have not progressed any further. The little peacock sewing etui below is designed by Jenny Adin-Christie and this was where I was up to the last time you saw it….

I had completed all the padding on the tail section and just started to apply satin stich to the central panel. This is where I am up to now….

As you can see I have stitched the inside middle panel and added spangles with gold thread. Then a chenille thread has been used to outline the central semi circle. I have also started to stich the background in a sparkly metallic thread. Here is a closer look…

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.

Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

    I feel like I say this every time, but your stitching takes my breath away. I love all the textures and stitches — it’s like I’m plunking away at Chopsticks and you’re playing Rachmaninov! Beautiful, beautiful work.
