Mary Garry

I have been sorting thru my projects & this Mary Garry flatfold was (has been) on the bottom of the stack in my basket, since 2005! Sigh.
The idea was to stitch the flatfold [DONE] hemstitch the outer edge [DONE], and make a small pocket for the inside [NOT DONE] ... select some nice fabric & add thread rings [NOT DONE]
I just got a darling freebie & thought it might be a great motif for the pocket. Then, went thru the patterns I own & think I liked all of these darling maidens.

This one is from She Who Sews c.1995 Mary Garry
I used suggested Anchor floss

This motif, (c.1995 Mary Garry She Who Sews) is nearly identical to the FREEBIE (last picture in this post). The colors are different.
I used suggested Anchor floss.

This is from a Mary Garry FREEBIE, Sew & Sew and I used both DMC and Anchor floss colors: dmc 931,and rest anchor per suggested on pattern.

Last, but not least, Mary Garry FREEBIE called She Who Sews


OK, I like all of them : )
and I'm thinking, if I want to be consistent, I should probably use the left over Milkpaint Silks which came with the kit!! and use the same linen as I started with.
The cute maiden motifs won't go to waste, they were totally fun to stitch & would be cute sewing smalls

The more I see them stitched up the more I can't wait to stitch them myself! You're doing a beautiful job with them! ;-)

Your flatfold is precious and I can't wait to see your "finish" finish. The colors are so wonderful - are they the Kreinik Milkpaint silks that came with the kit or that are called for on the chart? Thanks, Barbie
