A little stitching update

Good afternoon to you all.   It is a wet day here but very humid.
Last night I completed the back of this fan pinkeep.   There are a biscornu, scissor keep and pin holder in the set and I intend to make a drawstring bag to hold them all.    The whole thing is stitched on 30 count antique white linen with DMC threads  -  sorry for the dull photos: it's a dull day here!

Which of the two Japanese decorations do you think would look best at the base of the fan?   I can't decide.
The front of this fan has a stylised cherry blossom pattern which should be fun to stitch.   I can't remember the name of the designer at the moment but I know I bought it from The Silver Needle.
Have a good day everyone.


  1. Oh, how pretty I like the one that looks like a bird. CJ in OK ;-)

  2. Hi

    Just found your blog and had a little look around.

    You have some beautiful stitched peices.

    Your WIP is lovely and I like the feathery one too.

  3. I think the little doll would look perfect because the colours are similar!! What a cute fan!!

  4. Lovely design Margaret. I agree with Anne, the colour of the little doll matches nicely.

  5. I like the little red figure as it matches. Looks like a neat design.
