Take Two

The Monthly Challenge, restitched, on pre-stained fabric, without the colour runs. 
The chart is from Pineberry Lane and can be found here
Finished in a deliberately primitive style (I can do blanket stitch neater than that, honest), with tea stained lace, a twine bow and a rusty bell

Mind you, the final placement of one of the tea stains is a bit dubious


Rudolf!
 I nearly trod in that! I ought to rub your stupid red nose in it!

It's so much safer to stitch on pre.stained fabric. Your finishing is just gorgeous. I was doing this sewing on years ago and had forgotten about this way of finishing. I have to remember it when my finishing mojo comes back.

still very pretty. no one but you will notice.

Bea said...

The finished pillow is lovely and your comment made me giggle. Well done!

Preeti said...

You stitched again so quickly! It's looking very nice :) I guess even the earlier one was good, why can't tea spill on thread area and cause color bleed, why should it only stain the fabric area? I would have hung on to whatever happened with that excuse for stitching only once;)
You are a perfectionist!! No one will notice the dubious placement of stain until you mention.
