WIP Wednesday: The SAL's
The pattern given by Vakje per Week was great fun this week so I decided to make a box that is half of the available space for it, so the contents had more space to play. As it happens the box is 42 stitches square and I decided to go with the ochre yellow/orange/beige this week and used DMC Color Variations 4126 for the birds and made some a little bit different as well as slightly playing with the placement of one of the birds - just for a bit of fun.
Linen and Threads 2017 Mystery Band Sampler Stitch Along. This week I am able to show the completed embroidery so far! It didn't take long after last week's post I'd made to finish the embroidery, and then choose the beads to use for this as I wanted the birds to have some eyes and the flowers to have a spot in the middle of the + shapes.
The Never Ending Band Sampler Stitch-Along. It was barely started when you last saw this but I've made quite a bit of progress on this over the last week - in fact I completely finished stitching this panel - in as far as it fits anyway as my panels are smaller than the ones called for, However I had decided to use my stash for this so that's what I'm doing - even though sometimes it's hard going as the pattern is made for 14ct Aida or 28 count even weave so sometimes things are harder work than they could have been.
Jodyri January 2015 Limited Edition: Winter Sunset. With this panel done it was time to start the next Panel which is the February 2015 Limited Edition: Lonely Hearts.
That's all for this week - see you Friday when I'll have another Mucha Princess inspired free fob pattern!
