The Summer Magical Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 3

Welcome to the third part of the Summer Mystery SAL! I hope you saw my message in the Facebook group - if not or if you don't use Facebook it will be news to you that somehow the fourth green "moustache" shape of the part two pattern was missing from the PDF file. I'm not sure how as the pattern still had it in place and all I had to do was redo the pdf to make it show up again. I replaced the pattern immediately upon finding out. If your pattern shows four "moustache" shapes then you downloaded the pattern after the fix. If you only have three and you don't want to re-print it just start with that bit with today's pattern. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!
It turned out to be one of those days as I also discovered, when almost finished with stitching part two, that I'd made a mistake in the bottom section of part one. The left hand arch shape was one stitch too close to the first green dash.
Once I'd ripped out all of the incorrectly placed stitches it looked like this. I'm just glad I was able to avoid ripping more out as I'd counted for the next section from the corner rather than the stitches I'd done before.
And here it is looking like it should have to start with! I hope you are having better luck stitching!

Colours used this time:
  • Colour F (DMC 700 on the pattern)
Number of stitches:
  • 104 - in Colour F
For a total of 104 stitches for this part.

You can find the pattern here

Have fun and I'll see you tomorrow for the next part of the mystery and the next part of the Easy Christmas Cards SAL!

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:  #MagicalMysterySAL - let's make the world see what we are up to!
