Of course me being me I got things not entirely right as the green 20 cm lace edged linen wasn't as it turned out 20 cm of fabric but about 16 cm of fabric with the lace included in the 20 cm. I'd already stitched the border of the first block by then and having had a few goes at seeing if I could get the 3 blocks in width as I was supposed to but that failed so I decided to go with making the most of the space and leaving the first backstitched block where it was, this will pose a challenge over time as I may need to adjust things to fit the space I have especially as I only have 90 cm of the fabric instead of the 2 metres or so required, which will mean leaving out some weeks of blocks.
The second SAL I'm working on is the Linen and Threads 2017 Mystery Band Sampler Stitch Along. This is a lovely pattern so far and I'm miles behind mostly because I didn't start till the middle of February and my attention is split over 3 SAL's.
The last of the 3 SAL's I have joined in with in the same week is Pamela Kellogg's Never Ending Band Sampler which I found out about last December but hadn't started because of not knowing which fabric to use or which threads. I did finally decide and this is what I came up with:
Jodyri Designs and part of the monthly fabric she creates, this one is from January 2015 and once this is full I'll be moving on to the next one. I've got a whole stock to use as I've been collecting them ever since this first one so I'm not likely to run out even though they are not as long as called for (or as wide but as you can see there is plenty of space). What colours I will use when this runs out I don't know, I'm not planning on making them all tone on tone.
Last of all is the SAL I'm hosting myself - I've been trying to catch up a bit with the ones I've not stitched yet for whatever reason - or not completely finished as the case may be.
The current one I'm working on is the December pattern which I use as my take along project at the moment. I'm using the colours I planned for it on 18ct Aida.
As you can see I'm keeping myself busy, hopefully not too busy but we will see!
