There are eleven of us joining in so far, but there is still time to sign-up - just head to the bottom of this post before November 5th if you want to stitch along with us! There is a prize on offer for one lucky stitcher at the end of the month.
I have changed the rules slightly as I was a bit late offering this SAL. You now only have to post four times in November to be eligible for the prize draw, not five as previously stated. One observant SALer noticed that you would have to have posted yesterday in order to fit five weekly posts into November. Oops!
I will be emailing all the participants to let them know of this change.
Here's my ninth finish for October...
Decorating the Tree by Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe
stitched on 28 count mystery linen with VMSS threads
My plan for October was to reduce this bag of magazine cover kits...
There were 18 cover kits in there. I've just recounted them and there are still 13! I'm not sure how that happened as I had 9 mini finishes in October...
I've decided that I am only going to stitch the ones I really like and am going to get rid of the rest. The materials included are not of great quality and I don't think I could take another month of stitching under stress, worrying if there will be enough thread included to finish the stitching!
Here's one mini that I will be pleased to finish as I have spent lots of time reverse stitching this one...
Helz Cuppleditch freebie from WOCS magazine
On 14 count white aida with included threads
I also started younger son's Christmas bookmark this week...
Red Dragon Bookmark by Dracolair Creations
Stitched on 28 count Cashel linen Pewter Grey
with recommended DMC threads
I think this is the hardest thing I have ever stitched. It is full of fractionals and blended threads, and it is so difficult to count! The linen is lovely to work on but I'm not sure the final effect will be worth all the effort. It's good to challenge oneself every once in a while though eh?
Look what fell through the letterbox yesterday!
