Su came to visit at the weekend and we all went to the Creative Crafts show in Newcastle. We all had a good time and even though there was not really that much even there for us stitchers we still managed to find plenty to buy :-) I bought a couple of charts and some threads and mainly fabric as one stall had some lovely silk fabrics that I will use for finishing. One thing we did buy... all of us...was a heart shaped frame that came with a free mini chart, we bought a charm and button. We decided as we were all together to do it as a mini SAL on Saturday night at my Mums.
I stitched mine on 32ct lambswool, the writing is 1/1 in black DMC 310, I had a large pair of scissors in my stash and decided to use them as I liked the contrast of the big frame, big scissors and the tiny writing. I put my button onto the stitched piece as well which is a dull red.
Su stitched hers on white evenweave with one of her new silk threads called 'Bushfire' it is a lovely colour. Su used her button to decorate her frame and she tied a bow onto the hanger. Su's scissors were tarnished gold.
Mum's is also stitched on white evenweave with the 'Bushfire' silk thread and used her button and charm on the stitched piece and wanted to keep hers quite plain and simple. Mums scissors are bright gold on hers and her heart button is bright red.
Our results are all a bit different even though we all used the same chart, we all had a bit of a different idea of how we wanted it to look :-) We enjoyed doing these all together for a bit of fun and a nice memory when we look at our own :-))
