First of all, thanks to everyone who left a comment to my last entry. I can tell you that my thumb is a lot better and apart from the precautionary plaster feels back to normal, even though it doesn’t look too pretty.
I did manage to get some stitching done on Sunday, although it is surprising how hard it is to thread a needle without the use of your thumb lol
Here’s Masquerade as at the end of Sunday
You can see Sheila’s progress on our SAL on her blog, she’s a little further ahead than me, at the moment 😉
Last night was the Carriage House Samplings SAL on Needlecraft Haven. Molly now has a face, albeit very pale, and the first thing I will stitch next Tuesday will be her eyes, as she looks rather spooky at the moment LOL
As you might have guessed I am a sucker for a Stitch A Long. After planning to work only on my WIPs this year, I have already started three SAL’s, and am now planning to join in a fourth! I really do have very little willpower!
Another Needlecraft Haven SAL, this is a Jardin Prive design called Sampler aux Bouquets. I stitched my first Jardin Prive design last year (Eiffel Quaker) and really enjoyed it, so am looking forward to stitching another.
Here’s a pic of parts 1 and 2, part 3 will be released soon. I am stitching this on 40 count linen using DMC threads, and the SAL is to start on 15th March. I will probably stitch this on the nights I am not working on one of my other SALs.
