November SALs November 10, 2011

Posted by totallythreadup in Uncategorized.

On the 1st November I started two new SALs – First Snow by The Drawn thread, a great freebie, which is being run by Claire’s daughter Lindashee, with weekly updates.

There are a few speciality stitches in the design and this will be a first for me but I am enjoying the challenge of learning something new. It’s my intention at sometime in the future to stitch either The Tree of Stitches or The Great Escape, or maybe both, which have been designed by Abi Gurden and are available for members of the Yahoo Group The Stitch Specialists. It’s a very active group with almost 500 members which is simple to join – just complete a short questionnaire (update – the Tree of Stitches has now been retired). I’ve been following a few stitchers who are participating in the Great Escape SAL but haven’t got the time to participate at the moment. My challenge for 2012 maybe?

The Great Escape – isn’t this cute

Here is my pic of week one and two stitched on 32 count silver linen, the tree stitched in DMC 3787 gray brown and the pine stitches in Weeks Dye Works Juniper which I had left over from a recent LHN finish.

I have to wait patiently until the 14th to find out what we will be stitching in week 3.

My second “stitch at your own pace ” SAL is with Shio and was such a quick and easy design I completed it over the weekend!

Stitched on White Aida fabric (not sure of the count, possibly 16) using DMC 310 and 815 ( left over from my Sampler Aux Chats)
