The Summer Magical Mystery SAL 2020 - Part 5

Welcome to the fifth part of the Summer Mystery SAL! Today should be an exciting day for me - oldest and a friend will be digging a pond with a damp soil area around it in the garden next to the fence that was put in 2 years ago and got removed last year because the neighbours added an extension. The area was knee high in weeds and not nice to look at but what with one thing and another it wasn't easy getting to this point this year. In my dry soil making a damp soil area means putting pond liner under the soil to make it retain water better. The idea is to grow nice river bank type plants and create an area for birds and insects to drink/bath as well as have flowing water to help avoid standing water and mosquitoes. Fingers crossed the lads can get the groundwork done!
This is what mine looks like after stitching part four.

Colours used this time:

  • Colour A (DMC 444 on the pattern) 
  • Colour C (DMC 666 on the pattern)
Number of stitches:
  • 60 - in Colour A
  • 48 - in Colour C
For a total of 108 stitches for this part.

You can find the pattern here

See you tomorrow for the next part of the mystery!

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!
