Seasonal Breezes SAL is finally complete.....

Yippie, this SAL is finally complete. I received the final part early this month and completed the stitching on Feb 13th. Now, to decide, should I stitch a border? What color? I welcome any suggestions/comments.

In my last post, I mentioned that I had joined another SAL, the Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler SAL hosted by Hazel. I started late and had just posted my first picture on the SAL blog. I use DMC variations 4210 on 32ct Belfast linen. Here is a picture of my first progress. We are supposed to post monthly progress pictures to the Blog. I am enjoying this SAL.

I had an exchange to share. I received my HoE LK exchange from Rita. She stitched an Alphabet Sampler and finished it as a flatfold. It is beautiful and I love it. Rita also sent me some goodies, thanks Rita for a lovely exchange.

I am meeting my monthly goals, here is my February ornament. This is a freebie by Valerie @ Bonheur de Brodeuses. I am now rotating my stitchings among 3 big wips, ie, A Quaker Christmas, BP Quaker Sampler and LK Flip-It Blocks. Will post progress pictures in my next update.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Take care until the next update.

I love that SAL piece. It's so airy and whimsical. I think I would make it into a cushion. I'd trim with fabric rather than stitch a border.
