Papillon SAL completed

At last, the plan i had for my stitching this weekend actually happened, not very often i say that! This weekend i finally finished Part 12 of the Papillon Creations SAL 'How Does Your Garden Grow' DH has decided he really likes this one so we will be keeping it, bless the dear man and there was me thinking he wouldn't like it as it was so bright.

I paid £1 for the new one and have received Part 1, although i think i'll wait and see a few in the gallery before i decide on colours to get an idea of how others look.

The card i made for DS's Birthday. His present this year was an actual VERY OLD landrover vehicle the same as this, although it has more holes in it than a tea strainer and needs a lot of work done to it, and most people would have had it crushed!! For the past 7 years he has been on a mechanics full apprenticeship so the repairs should be a doddle to him and it should soon be on the road. I couldn't find a chart, but a friend found one in an old mag and DH made a few alterations so that it looked the same, a true family effort :-)

I've also done a bit on the Travelling Stitcher, but i'll save a pic of that for next time. Tuesday again and Mr Stick is out and about looking for his UFO ladies. Happy and frog-free stitching to you all.

  8. Congratulations on your finish Julie. It is beautiful:) I wasn't going to bother with the new SAL but then I saw the screenshot for the first part and love it so decided I'd get it. Not sure yet whether I'll stitch the whole thing so may well wait and see what part two looks like before I decide.
