First, a couple of WIPs to show you. Sorry the pics are all so dark - I took them outside but it was really misty first thing this morning.
There's a lovely new mystery Quaker freebie out, and I really, really wanted to start it. So, I'm doing one length of thread a day. I reckon this will keep it going without interfering too much with everything else. This is as far as I've got on day 4. It's such fun to do!
I'm stitching it on 40ct Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens (my first time on 40ct and I'm really enjoying it) with Dinky Dyes Midnight (yummy!). I want to do the smaller motifs in a coffee colour but haven't found the right thread yet.
In between doing that, I've been working on Dawn's RR. Here's my bit so far:
And here's the whole thing:
And lastly, here's Alpine at the start of my Olympic SAL.
I have some work I have to do first, but I'm going to get started later today. I have four goals, and I hope to get two done, and possibly three. The fourth is just there for something to aim at!
1. Finish part 8
2. Bead part 8
3. Stitch the inside border for part 9 (with all the speciality stitches)
4. Finish half of part 9
Watch this space!
