SAL Update: Finally, a Finish!

November 27, 2016 at 9:58 am | Posted in Embroidery | 14 Comments

I made a firm plan at the last update to finish my Paisley Pillow this time round, since there was so little work left to do. And yes, it actually happened! I finished the stitching a week ago, and this morning I managed to iron it (was a bit apprehensive about ironing silk, but managed) and to take some pictures for you.

Last time we were here:


And here’s the finished and ironed pillow cover:


A detail shot of the embroidery:


And here it is, with a pillow inside in pride of place at the back of my couch:


I love the shine of the silk!

So, now I’m out of excuses to start with that goldwork project … maybe I can get it at least set up till next time in spite of crazy Christmas season being here already?

Here are the other members of the SAL who are posting today. Make sure to check out their work, it’s amazing: Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, Lucy, Jess, Sue, Kate, Debbie Rose, Christina, SusanP, Kathy, Margaret and Cindy. Helen is joining us for the first time, welcome!
