HAED SAL challenge

This weekend was the first weekend in the year-long Stitch-a-long Challenge over on the Heaven and Earth Designs bulletin board. The idea is to commit to stitch every month on the same piece and so make good progress! Afer much decision I chose Tomboy as my piece - so here are the before and after photos.




I actually stopped stitching yesterday afternoon as it was so hot and humid - 27 degrees in the coolest room of the house. I was stitching with off-white thread on off-white fabric, and that and a large bit of fabric meant it was all too much! There's actually a block of wall done that's hard to see as it's all white and sparkly thread.

On to Strawberry Garden today and then back to Coffee Menu, which should be finished by the end of the week!
