Mamluk Cross Stitch SAL - Part 3

Welcome to the third part of the Mamluk SAL! This month we are going to do the third odd shaped part that completes the full height of the left hand side - you can now see the full width and height of the finished embroidery.

This time there is no photo of my work... not because I haven't stitched it but because I forgot to take a photo when doing the sample stitch for this part and have already stitched more than I can show at this stage so can't actually show you the stitched version - sorry about that!

Instead you can see the amazing work that my friend Carla Eldridge did in less than half an hour when I asked for her assistance! Go check out her blog - she blogs almost every day!

Please note that the patterns show the entire pattern area every month - as time goes by the space will become covered in stitches. So what shows as the middle this month IS the middle of the pattern.

This month there are 92 stitches for the original version and 92 stitches for the restored.

As of next month all the parts will be the same shape, though as always the stitch count will vary.

You can find the original pattern here
You can find the restored pattern here

If you are stitching this too and want to join us on Facebook just go to the Facebook group and apply!

If you want to (also) join in on Instagram or Twitter all you need to do is use the tag #MamlukSAL and/or my name @Magical525 and I'll be sure to look in on your work and possibly even re-tweet it if it's on Twitter!

I'll see you Friday with the second 25 x 25 for 2019.
