"Spring" Bell-pull

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Eventually finishing it! It was unfinished for many years and I picked it up and did a bit now and then at long spaced-out intervals until I finally got around to completing the embroidery and constructing the bell-pull, comparatively recently, many years later. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even though I bought this kit in the '70s (but only finished recently), it's still available via the internet. Start in the middle and keep going - you'll get there in the end!

What you will need

  • Evenweave linen
  • DMC embroidery floss
  • interfacing
  • cotton backing fabric
  • furnishing cord
  • metal hangers.

It may have taken you a long time to finish but I bet you think it was worth it now! It's gorgeous.

Thank you. I'm just a bit worried about it fading now ,,, Can't win!
