Symphony SAL

I stitched part 2 of the Symphony SAL over the last two nights and also frogged the large speciality stitches in the first part and restitched those as I wasn't happy with them. I think this is really pretty so far and I am so pleased I chose this colourway for it. The fabric I am using is Silkweaver 28 count cashel linen in Tuttie Fruitie.

I think I have the charts picked out that I want to use for my MM&I SAL I am not sure just how I'm going to place each house/cottage as yet, or what else I will have on it, and will have a play around once I get all the charts together. I do have a couple of ideas ( one of those thanks to Marianne!) so planning should be fun! Lol!

I picked my new reading glasses up from Specsavers this morning. They feel really strange at the moment as I have a slightly stronger prescription again this time and my left eye needed more than my right! Hopefully I won't be too long before I get used to them.

Just a short post today! Have a fantastic weekend everyone. Hope the weather is something like where you are. It's warm here but dull and misty.

Hugs

That's lovely Sally, love the fabric you are using.

I hate it when I have to change my glasses, it take ages to get used to the new prescription doesn't it....hopefully you are getting used to yours now.

Hope you are getting the fine weather there this weekend......it was fabulous here yesterday and looks like it's another nice day today, well so far!! lol

Happy stitching and Hugs to you.....

I'm quite behind in reading, but in looking through your posts you've been quite busy. Your new SAL is looking lovely, fun fabric you chose for it too. Quaker Christmas is so pretty, and Sea Stars is looking awesome. You almost have the large motif done, that will be such a feeling of accomplishment to have that one done. Can't wait to see a bit more of the serpent too.
Sorry to hear that you've been feeling so off. It is so hard when kids leave, I had a terrible time when my DD first moved away from home to college, it just seemed so empty. Hopefully their schedules are all straigtened out now and you'll start to feel like you have a bit more balance in your life soon too.

Hope you're getting on well with your glasses and that you won't get anymore headaches now.

My left eye is weaker than my right too, but I don't need mine for reading, I need them for watching TV and driving, but I tend to just wear them all day now.

Love the fabric your new WIP is on.

Thats so pretty Sally.

I am so looking forward to seeing these neighbourhoods take place but I think mine is going to be a long project as Ive got rather carried away with the idea.
