I've been working on the buttonhole embroidery stitch these days, using it on one of the wool kits I picked up on the Elmira Mystery Bus Tour. I still have the willow tree leaves to embroider & the window panes to be done in all the windows. With the wee scraps of wool left over from this Primitive Gatherings Saltbox Table Mat 22"x 22"... I used them to make this Bareroots #165 House's Candle Mat 8"x8"
And together - I really like the look! So the two shall work as one & when I've something to place in the center of the large circle, I'll just remove the small center House Candle Mat.
For now I have to take a time out from hand sewing, all the embroidery has done my finger in, I must find that thimble! I wish my middle finger was tougher!! The layering project was a pleasant surprise, with the use of the scraps --- everything has harmony, from the scene of houses & trees to the same colour palette such fun!
