Country Cottage SAL - Part two


It's time for an update of the Country Cottage SAL, I am doing with Val at Val Spires Sews, As I've said before I have only done bits of embroidery before. I treated myself to a lightbox but even with the use of that the tracing took longer than I thought it would, thank goodness for Fixon pens, the magic of being able to iron away anything I wasn't happy with was just that magic! I am sure it will get easier in time.


This is the picture will go on the front of the needle case, it's waiting for the fabric house, the embroidery isn't quite finished, there are some french knots to add, it isn't perfect but I'm quite pleased at my first attempt. Next time I am aiming to have the needle case finished, so watch this space as they say.

Bye for now

Yay, I can still comment so far! The stitching is looking lovely! Looking forward to seeing this come together, and it's bound to be quicker than mine!

It's looking really good Shirley, your stitching is so much neater than mine, it's going to be one very lovely needlecase.
