Done with the purple numbers

Done with the purple numbers, originally uploaded by lille-ursus.

Now I need to embroider the yellow numbers on another piece of Gingham linen.

In Denmark 7-9-13 is an old saying if you are superstitious. A bit like "knock on wood".

I'm going to use this one for a pillow, and the same thing is going to happen to the one with the yellow numbers. When it's done...


  1. Are they made with french nods? If they are: I take my hat off to your patience. Woaw.

    I love the font you use, how the nr. 1 is smaller than nr. 3

  2. Hvor er det blevet fint.

  3. It is looking great and I agree with "life in yonder", your patience is amazing!

  4. Sadly they aren't, Anne. I'm so miserable at that particular stitch! I used to be able to make it, but all of a sudden I can't seem to get it right...

    And thanks a lot...I love that font too - now I can't remember what it's called. :))


    1000 tak, Hanne. :)) Tallene var rigtig sjove at sy. Faktisk blev det tilfældigt udseende sting meget planlagt at lave. Jeg tænkte hele tiden over at vende hvert sting forskelligt og de måtte ikke røre hinanden. :))


    Thanks a lot, Nina. :)) I loved making those numbers. The stitches were a blast to make. I'm sure I will try that again.

    I'm usually very patient as a person, but not as much as I used to be. But with this work it was definitely needed! ;))

    Have a lovely Tuesday,
    happy thoughts,

  5. yay i've learned something new !!

    i just LOVE your embroidery work !!!

  6. Thank you so much, Valerie. :)) It was really great fun making it. It's just a lot of tiny stitches within the shape of a number.
