Quite a bit of stitching achieved here this week, the January challenge is complete but no reveal of this one till next weekend when the album will be open for us all to admire each others work. This month the choice was any design from Papillon Creations freebies, a tough choice which one to do, but i am pleased with the finished result.
Here's my first WIP pic of the Beatrix Potter Quaker SAL. I started this Friday evening, then spent a lovely afternoon yesterday when everyone was out stitching away. Just to make it more exciting i watched Miss Potter at the same time and got lots achieved. I decided to stitch it 1x1 and even then the finished size will be approx 12"x10" Fabric i finally chose is 25ct laguna in potato (i liked the flecks in it), thread choice is Carries Creations in Wedgewood. There are 100 ladies on the SAL blog joining in with this. Thank you Hazel for allowing me to join you all.
Earlier in the week i did my evening on The Tea Room, the SAL with Karen. My winter tree has now grown and i added the street lamp as i am having to put the light on here in the day to see anything and we cant possibly drink tea in the dark can we! 2 tubs with plants and the leaves need to emerge and also a bit of greenery under the words still to do before i have a happy dance wth this one.
Weatherwise, its been really horrid here. We've had gale force winds and lashing rain, wellington boots are needed if i go into the shed as we are under water in there, guess where by boots are... no, not in the shed, they're at the allotment LOL
