Changing colours

I'm still beavering away on my embroidered hoops.....and still have plenty of my original vintage tablecloth......but thought it might be nice to work with some different colours for a change.
This was a small cloth I found in a charity shop which was already part embroidered.....I've finished off the stitching.
Added buttons and beads......and also die cut some felt flowers for a bit of different texture.

It's so lovely - and I really like the idea of you finishing off a piece if stitching you found in a shop. I wonder who started it?

Kathyk said...

So pretty, like the button additions you've made to bring it smack bang up to date - you plainly have more patience than I do, Jacky!

It's lovely Jacky. Like Sian, I wonder who may have started it. Great that you have given it a new lease of life.

That is a lovely idea Jacky. I love upcycling and giving things a new lease of life. This looks so pretty with your buttons and hoop.

Cheri said...

Awesome idea - and the beading is definitely my favorite bit.

Amy said...

You've done a lovely job Jacky, it is so pretty and delicate.

Wow, what a fab 'recycling' project ... love your buttons and beads too :)

Karen said...

I love the addition of the buttons and beading. This project is making me wonder what happened to my embroidery patterns. I haven't come across them in my purging of the second floor, but they may show up when we hit the basement and the attic. This is beautiful!

These are absolutely gorgeous and will look so beautiful when you have them all hung together.

Jacky x This is really stunning x
I love the fact you have finished the half started embroidery :)

Love this - you are getting better and better at these (as long as that doesn't sound like the first one was rubbish - it wasn't, it was lovely - pass me a spade and I'll dig deeper LOL)

Katie Berberich said...

Oh my word, you are on a roll! These are really amazing, the effort in the detail is inspirational. The colours, again blend beautifully. You need a shop, I'd buy one!
Embroidery is so beautiful.
Well done on another triumph.
