During all the years I have been doing
cross stitch I finished a lot of projects, some quite big and another really
tiny. In the next posts series I will show the most important project I have
finished, divided in to Small Projects, Medium Size and Large Projects and
Other Crafts Projects.
Today I want to write about my small
projects. I have done really a lot of small projects, some for myself and other
for sending in the swaps I have participated. I am going to show you only those
ones which have a special significance for me (all my jobs have significance for
me obviously; the ones I will show are special for some reason or another).
Even if I was doing cross stitch from very
early stages of my life, I had never finished any of my projects before 2011
and that is the reason why I mark that date as my real embroidery starting
point. The first job I finished was a small design called Petit Coeur de Amis.
I did in green Aida 14 count with greenish threads and I did as a door handle
I was amazed with the small Petit Coeurs
and I decide to continue working in that line. I have always like more the,
let’s say, 3D embroideries than the flat ones, even I have also done plenty. I
did a simple FOB with a very easy design but which served me to learn the
“biscornu joining” technique, as I call it.
After making few FOBs and similar projects
it was time to try my first biscornu. I choose a gourmand design and I joined
it using the technique I was training with the FOBs. The result wasn’t so bad
to be the first…..
When Christmas time came I decided to make
a pinkeep ornament. The design was the obvious for that time of the year, a
Christmas tree. I will prepare a tutorial about pinkeep making in the next
future to share with you.
To finish with the small projects with a
special significance for me, I will show this small cushion and sachet. They
are part of a collection of 5 cushions and 5 sachets. The design and finishing
were very simple but they are special for me because that was the first Stich A
Long (SAL) project I organized for a huge quantity of people
That is all for the moment. In my next post
I will talk about the medium size projects I have done from 2011. See you soon
and have a good embroidery time. Comments are welcome.
