It's finally reveal day for the S&S/JA monthly SAL challenge and the photo album is up on the MB so I can show my finish! The design chosen for January was With My Needle Eliza's Pyn Pillow. I chose to stitch mine on 32 count linen ( can't remember the colour) but over two instead of over one. I used GAST and Ozark Sampler threads. I decided to make this up into a bourse and I am pleased with the way it turned out:) It was lovely to see all the different fabrics and threads the other girls had chosen and how they'd finished them off. We are now voting on February's challenge.
Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting up with Chris again. We spent a few hours chatting and showing each other some stitching and Chris handed over her Quaker RR to me for me to stitch on:) I don't think she could quite believe the amount of stitched pieces I have on my walls!!! Looking forward to seeing you again, Chris, in a few weeks:)
I'm not doing bad with HAED quick stitch Girly Gothic this week. I'm hoping to get the first page finished but it very much depends upon how soon I get stitching this evening and tomorrow evening! I must admit I was feeling a little despondant again with my HAEDs as they just don't grow fast enough. The first few I stitched I got a lot of satisfaction from but now I just feel I can't get on fast enough with them. Anyway I went through the charts I have and have a few more for sale. I've still got more than I will ever stitch though!
Still in two minds about this year's Loose Feathers Club but I know I will cave eventually. There's no way I want to miss out but I'm unsure of where the best place to buy from would be.
