A Year in Stitch

My son’s Mother-in-law sent me a couple of nice wooden spools, so I just had to make another scroll. This one is 4″ across and a yard long.

The fabrics are polyesters silk and upholstery scraps and not in a color scheme I thought I would work in but sometimes the fabrics on your table make the decision for you. I’ve added old and new laces, yoyo’s, and hexagons. The buttons and charms are from my collection. The stitching is with Perle Cotton using Chain Stitch, Straight Stitch, and Running Stitch. I put a ribbon doubled through the spool for hanging.
