New Project

I was distracted again! Dorothy was put on temporary hold as I started another big project ha ha!  I found Sara's blog, she is doing a SAL. This current SAL is coming to an end in March and the new one will commence on April 1. Love her designs so I started Summer, a big design 280w x 263h stitches! Here is my new start!

Design: Summer by Sara Guermani
Fabric: 40ct Lakeside Linen Lentil
Thread: DMC

Another closer look, don't you just love that button?

I plan to rotate my two big projects, Dorothy and Summer, with a lot of smalls in between!

An update on my Hardanger SAL. I have one more filler to do, the  Edelweiss, a beautiful white flower!  I enjoy doing Hardanger in between cross stitch projects!

I love small projects as well, here is my recent collection of small pincushions/fob.

This piece was done on 22ct hardanger fabric many years ago, I don't stitch on Aida anymore.

I finished By The Bay Needleart's Autumn SAL. Now, I must find time to finish it into a big pincushion for my box!

Love the colors of the big leaves! I used DMC variations 4130.

I am stitching for exchange now, will show pictures later. Hope to show Dorothy's progress in my next update!

Thank you for your visits and comments, they are greatly appreciated!

Happy Stitching!
