Finally some photo’s of my latest obsession… two cross stitch SALs, as usual, I’m miles behind on both, but am enjoying the individual journeys.
First photo is my progress on the Mary Wigham SAL being offered by Needleprint… still haven’t finished Part 1!
Am using a gorgeous Stitches and Spice Sand Storm Belfast 32ct linen and have done by own conversion based on looking at photo’s of original – realised after I’d ordered the threads and checked the DMC equivalent, my colours are a lot different – but am loving what I’ve done so far!
Am using Gentle Arts Sampler Threads, lots of the Shaker Threads… am enjoying the subtle colour variations, haven’t used these threads before.
The other SAL I am working on is the Isabelle Haccourt Vautier Grand Marquoir – again am miles behind, am still working on Part 1 and Part 4 has just been released. Oh, well… never mind!
And been inspired by Jayne’s work on Swiss Topiary that was offered by Crown Stitches, to buy the thread and linen and kit it up and now being very tempted to do the South Seas Laces SAL that Molly and Claire are planning… aargh!
