Well.. thanks to all those who commented on my SAL suggestion blog...I can announce that I subscribed to the 'abc' and the Frosted Pumpkin 'Passport Pals' and the hardanger stitch along.
I am also pleased to say that I have started the abc and passport pals...I wanted to start the hardanger but I need to order the fabric so that is on the to-do list.
I started the 'abc' first whilst I waited for the first part of passport pals to be published, and I don't know what i was thinking!
I chose the fabric based on it looking the right colour (I have no idea of count or where I purchased it from) and began to stitch...2 over 1...thats right...2 over 1...I don't know what I was thinking...it is actually quite nice but very small and I am debating redoing this 2 over 2...I might as well as its not quite finished...but here is how far I have gotten.
Then whilst I waited for passport pals...I opened the christmas kit taht I was given, its a design based on the artits Lowry, he painted street scenes of Manchester, and i like their simplicity. Such is it that the stitching has no confetti or dithering and if I dedicate some more time to it, I am hoping that it should stitch up quickly.
Here is what it should look like finished:
And here is my progress...its the left side of the yellow house...
The photo colour isn't so great!
Then finally the passport pals....
I still have the border and the text and to finish London but its not far off being done..I did change the skin colour as my niece wanted it to be the same as her and also...I used a fabric I had sitting in my stash bag and not that which was suggested...this fabric I do know is whatever was recommended to stitch a mirabilia on...which i hadn't gotten around to!
I can see how having a rotation can help you to get more done, it stops you getting bored, or at least thats the idea!
SO....I wrote this on Monday...and I also wrote my Top 10 but on paper...I thought yesterday I would have time but...I went to a course that I have just started in London and it was awesome but...a really long day...so this is for now and Top 10 Tuesday will follow tonight!
