Smalls SAL - July and Tusal check-in

It´s time to check in for the Smalls SAL which is hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus.  This month has passed so quickly and I have made a bookmark for a friend of mine who is going through a rough patch in her life and this gift is to mark, not only the pages of a book, but also a turn in her life.


The pattern was amongst all my needlework papers and paraphernalia but I can´t find reference to the designer.


I embroidered the initial of my friend´s name.


 and backed the bookmark with a silky blue fabric and added a couple of beads and tassel



I love bookmarks and have quite a few, mainly bought years ago as souvenirs from visits to museums and zoos etc.  Now I enjoy embroidering them as small gifts.
If you are interested in stitching a little item each month or finishing one already started ages ago, just click on the sidebar image which will take you to Heather´s blog where all the information is.

TUSAL Check-in.

A few days late but here are the threads in my ORT´s jar nearing the top.  All my stitching this month has been mainly with red threads used on the Randje per Week SAL sampler and mixed coloured threads from the above bookmark.


If anyone is interested in joining `The Totally Useless Stitch A Long´ which involves, not stitching, but saving threads in a jar and showing them each month when there is a new moon, you will find all the information clicking on the sidebar button which will take you to It´s Daffycat.
