Catching up on SAL’s

Afternoon bloggers,

Stitching on the SAL’s was good this week, some days better than others but overall progress has been good.

I seem to be at this boat forever lol, this coming week I’m hoping will finish most of the brown on it off .

Thursdays : Robin Hood by LHN a SAL with Linda over at Stitchin with my Furbabies
Stitched on 28ct Light Mocha with the recommended DMC threads.
This needs to be ready for Alan’s birthday on the 6th of March so I really need to knuckle down with this on Thursdays. 

Robin Hood-Before

Robin Hood-After

That’s it so far for the week. I did order the frame for Robin Hood and the Mrs Darcy Sampler during the week so I can frame them when I have them done. I also ordered threads for my Mr Darcy letter piece I’m wanting to do and as there are so few colours in it, I changed the colours to silks to what I think will blend so I’m looking forward to those arriving.

This weekend I’ll be working more on the hunting picture and Mrs Darcy of course and I’ll start another ornament.

Sunday will be a blog YOP update.

Happy stitching,
