SAL Update

I’ve just a quick update for the stitch a longs I’ve been working on this week.

Monday is the CCN Cottages series. I’m doing mine on one piece of 40ct lambswool..oh boy is 40ct tiny! I didn’t make as good progress as I’d wanted as when I got to the white I found it hard so I think this is a slow and steady kind of project lol

Tuesdays is the turn of the LHN Elizabeth Hancock sampler. This I’m stitching on 32 count light mocha, I love this shade of linen and combine this with the silks of the sampler and its turning out to be a lovely stitch.

Wednesdays is the turn of Prarie Schooler’s ABC’s. I’m stitching these on the recommended 32ct lambswool linen with DMC threads.

Thursdays is my SAL with Linda over at Stitchin with my Furbabies together we are stitching Robin Hood. Its a Little House Needleworks piece. I need this done by the end of February for Alan’s birthday so I think I need to get my skates on with this piece. Linda is also having a wonderful blogoversary giveaway over on her blog so head on over and check it out.

    Oh wow, you are coming along nicely with all of the SALs and I am sure you will have Robin Hood done in plenty of time – you have done lots already! Good luck with the 40ct!

  4. Linda says:

    Wow Ruth. Everything looks great and you got alot done on each one. Robin Hood is fantastic and I need to get with it. Are you stitching the Prairie Schoolers separately or on one piece. I have these and started the X several years ago.Linda
