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!

  1. London is coming along really well, especially if you're only doing 1 day a week. Have you ever been there? Every time I look at your piece it brings back some great memories.

    Excellent progress on the SOS piece - it's looking good!

  10. Oooh so you are doing a rainbow! :D Or inverted rainbow! Are you going to fill in the child with your markers?

    Tower Bridge looks lovely, though I feel it should be blueish green!

  11. I'm not a daily rotator either, for the same reason. Two or three days on one project is a must, then my passionate stitching on it is satisfied until the next time. BUt the best for me is a week, after a week I can easily wander on to the next project.
    Very nice progress on your SOS project.

  12. Great progress! I need to post mine. It is hard to stitch on that only once a week. I get excited when it's Tuesday and I can work on my New York. Great progress on Stitching Out Stigma.
