The Autumn Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 28

Welcome to the 28th part of the Autumn Mystery SAL 2020! Just two more parts to go after today! I don't know about you but I'm really keen to have mine finished because I can't wait to see how the next few days make mine - and yours - look. So exciting!

NFSAL 2020 - November

Welcome to the eleventh part of this year's NFSAL posts! Yesterday I was thinking happily that I was on top of all the things and didn't have any SAL stuff left today - and then I saw the NFSAL post was still due today... talk about a yikes moment. I didn't get the backstitched part complete this month but I did do the cross stitch (not that it's all that much).

The Autumn Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 27

Welcome to the 27th part of the Autumn Mystery SAL 2020! Today we are again using a colour you haven't seen for a while - it's that time of the SAL apparently! Since it was previously only used in the border you may have been wondering if you'd see it elsewhere - the answer is yes, you will!

The Autumn Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 26

Welcome to the 26th part of the Autumn Mystery SAL 2020! We have now entered what I usually consider the end days of a Mystery SAL (or hours in one that posts every four hours) the time when t's get crossed and i's get dotted and I'm sure you are dying to use more DMC 022 - however for today I have to disappoint you as we aren't using it today - maybe tomorrow... who knows...

The Autumn Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 25

Welcome to the 25th part of the Autumn Mystery SAL 2020! As you probably realised when you saw part 24 you have now finished the border! From now on it's centre all the way, though I'm sure you might be wondering where I'm going to put the remaining stitches that you get today and the final five days. You don't have to wait for today's stitches but do for the rest hehe.

A Blackwork Christmas - November

Welcome to the eleventh edition of A Blackwork Christmas SAL! Today I'm running late again - It's been quite the day what with one thing and another and I was rather distracted from my stitching as a result. I did manage to finish the stocking though as I'd planned - with the amount of work planned there just isn't space left to not finish something before the post.

The Autumn Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 24

Welcome to the 24th part of the Autumn Mystery SAL 2020! Today you are getting to use the beloved DMC 022 - I know you loved using it yesterday so I thought I'd give you some more today! I'm certain you will be surprised where it's used too!

News: Update and More - November Edition

After the extra health issues earlier this year and getting far behind with far too many things I think I can say I'm more or less caught up with everything. In the end I sent a mass email with everyone as BCC to those of you who donated by PayPal and hadn't been emailed a reward yet. If you haven't received one yet please check your spam folder of the email listed with PayPal. If you still can't find it please let me know!

The Autumn Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 23

Welcome to the 23rd part of the Autumn Mystery SAL 2020! Today you are getting to stitch two colours! Not something I've done very often but today it was unavoidable. There is some more 007 to stitch and you will be overjoyed to hear that 022 is back too! Take care with stitch placement today, you wouldn't want to have to rip!

The Autumn Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 22

Welcome to the 22nd part of the Autumn Mystery SAL 2020! I'm afraid that after your brief respite in the centre I'm sending you back to the work camps in the border. You knew it was too good to be true to be working in the centre... and it was...
