The Spring Magical Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 11

Welcome to part eleven of the Spring Mystery SAL! Having gone to bed with part nine incomplete and a bunch of morning stuff to do before I could sit down to stitch, I'm still not all caught up with stitching - but that's how these high speed SALs go, so don't be too hard on yourself if you aren't 100% up to date - I'm not either!
This is what mine looks like part way into stitching part ten - I rather like the way the variegated thread makes some of the lines look like two colours of threads were used for them even though it's the same thread just a different section of it.

A bunch of parts ago I got fed up with all of the threads on the back so finished them all off and stuck the still threaded needles in a pincushion, one pincushion per colour, and I randomly grab a needle when I need it and use it with no consideration for colour placement at all. Somehow it's working nicely - though admittedly it's not everyone's cup of tea to work like this.

Colours used this time:
  • Colour C (DMC 368 on the pattern)
Number of stitches:
  • 88 - in Colour C
For a total of 88 stitches for this part.

You can find the pattern here

See you for the next part of the mystery in four hours!

I do not expect anyone to be able to be up to date at all times during the SAL - you need to eat and sleep at the very least so expect to be "behind" part - if not all - of the time! It's part of the nature of this type of SAL for this to happen, so being "behind" is the normal state of affairs. If you are a slow stitcher expect to finish "after" the SAL has "finished" - though tbh the SAL is always available and new people find the patterns on a regular basis so it's never really over.

On all social media sites the tag to use is:  #SpringMysterySAL - let's make the world see what we are up to!
