Hello folks – week 6 in our SAL which means it’s time to unveil the last part . . . not very difficult to guess what to do this week . . . it’s the blackwork stars on our chequered background. I actually have TWO versions to show you this week ^^ yep, I stitched once on a 16 count aida (which is the one I’ve been showing you) but also stitched on a 14 count white. So here are my two squares
Now, the idea behind stitching small designs, is to then finish them off (and not just add the pile of unfinished projects in the drawer) . . . so I immediately set to my finishings . . .
Aida trimmed and then laced to cardboard with wadding and two more squares with wadding and a backing fabric
Then some whip-stitching, ribbons and pins . . . and I have pinkeeps to add to my pressie drawer.
I am now looking forward to seeing how fellow SALers finish off their stitching. Everyone always seems to have such wonderful ideas, and it’ll be interesting to see the variety.
If you’ve never made a pinkeep and you want to try, I did a tutorial a few years ago which you can find here PINKEEP TUTORIAL
