Pretty Little SAL
I'm doing a SAL with Linda and Kate for the Satsuma Street Pretty Little Cities designs. I bought three European ones last year and started Pretty Little London last month. I stitch on it once a week and here is three weeks' progress:
Stitched on 32 count Antique White Linen
This week I stitched the triangular blocks at the base of the towers of Tower Bridge and filled in some windows.
It's very addictive and I want to carry on beyond the one day a week. I guess this is why I am not a daily rotator! Luckily I have another addictive piece I can work on each day. Mostly because there is a deadline of the end of the month.
This is for the Stitching Out Stigma project. My piece is doesn't have a title yet but it's on the theme of the Parents' Point of View, specifically the maze of acronyms which surround mental health problems. Here is the current piece:
I can't fit it all on the scanner!
I am stitching this on 28count white Jobelan using Anchor threads. So far we have Violet, Indigo and Blue, moving on to Green next. I will be listing all the acronyms on my Happy Dance blog post when I have finished but if you are interested now please feel free to ask.
Finally, I am taking names for the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop. If you would like to be part of this as a picture poster please email me and I will add you to the list. All you have to do is post a photo of something you have stitched or otherwise crafted on an Easter/Spring theme along with a letter I will allocate you. The letters will spell out a seasonal phrase when people hop round in the right order. If you prefer an anagram challenge please hop round in a random order!
