A little finish


Thought I would share this little finish I have done, it was a freebie from DanyBrod published quite a while ago now. I have stitched it on 40ct white linen using Kaallund silk thread (the same colour as I used for the Valentine Exchange and made it into a little ornament, the edging I used some 1/8 inch satin ribbon and the hanger is the 1/2 inch satin ribbon the same colour.
I was asked where I got my Kaallund silk thread from - well it was from Jaynes Attic who unfortunately is no longer trading I bought the whole range of colours a few years ago when she first stocked it, but unfortunately I too have no idea where to get it from now and its such a lovely thread to use too and the colours are so beautiful.

Thankyou for all your lovely comments about my progress, I have almost finished the EEF and am thinking about starting another of them if I can decide which one to so next.

Tonight was driving lesson time and I had a good lesson again, they seem to be getting better so maybe I am improving!!

A really sweet finish Su!

My grandson Jack (just turned 17) had his first driving lesson last weekend - he says 'he's lovin' it'! Sounds like you are too.

Su hi,
This is such a dainty little design. I love the colour and the way you have trimmed it with the pretty ribbon.
So glad the lessons are continuing to go well.

I LOVE your little bird with the heart Su! Your work is just beautiful! Don't you just love Dany's patterns? I have a few of her little samplers I want to stitch soon.

Good work on the driving! You will be doing it like a pro in no time.

Pretty little finish

Jane said...

Cute little finish, Su.

As your driving improves so will your confidence, or is that the other way around? Anyway, both will improve with time and soon enough you'll be whizzing through those streets (not speeding though!).

I've just had a quick search for those threads you mentioned and they may be an Australian brand (though I haven't heard of them). Here's a link to stockists -

Have been in lurkdom with you and several other blogs, but have finally had time to enjoy my blogging so I thought I would be a follower - hope you don't mind!

Oh I do love this - such a sweet little piece. :0)
I had a feeling you were going to say it was JA you got the threads from. I'd only just started collecting them when she stopped trading. :0(
