So many bright colours coming to life as Avis and I put the last stitches to our “Kokeshi Friends” stitching.
“Kokeshi Friends” a design by Joan Elliott is a project we began stitching in November. One little doll every 3 weeks, and it’s amazing how quickly a design can grow.
I have not only been happy dancing because of finishing the cross stitch . . . I have also been having a happy dance because I immediately set to work with my Juki, and voilà
Lots of colourful scraps which were perfect for the bright colours of this design . . . a bit of stippling
And hey presto . . . the perfect cushion to go with the rather bright sofa in my sewing room.
I love it ^^
After all those bright photos . . . don’t forget to do some blog-hopping and see what other SAL members have been up to these past 3 weeks. Avis has finished her “Kokeshi Friends” too . . . and other ladies are busy busy busy: Kate, Carole, Gun, Wendy, Lucyann, Jess, Cathy, Sue and Constanze.
Next SAL update will be on 22nd May. Avis and I will be starting something completely different.
