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:

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?
