SALs and Queen Lily May 6, 2011Posted by totallythreadup in Uncategorized.

A quick update on the two SALs I am doing, firstly Masquerade. As I went to Swansea for a family visit on Sunday I missed out on stitching so this is my progress as at 24 April. Still waiting to see Sandra’s progress!!! – BUT I did get to see her new craft room – absolutely stunning, the pictures don’t really do it justice – it really is fabulous and she already done some beautiful quilting which I am sure she will share with you soon
Even though I have been religiously stitching each Thursday on this SAL last week I didn’t get around to taking a pic so this is a combination of weeks three and four. I am using some old thread for the gray cat and he’s looking a little tabby!
And Queen Lily finally framed. I’ve used Ian’s camera to try and take a better pic but I must say it looks much better in real life but at least it is now hanging on the wall in a room I use during the daytime so it almost feels like Lily is back home
….and here is the real Lily – can you see the resemblance??
Whilst collecting Queen Lily from the Nimble Thimble I picked up a few charts which were on sale (I’ll post these another time). Ian thought this one looked very much like Lily’s brother Alfie so I am thinking of stitching this to go alongside Queen Lily. The only think that is putting me off is that there is a huge block of stitching in 310 on the right hand side – YUK!!!!
