Stitch-a-longs galore

It's Tuesday so it's time to post the first of my Toccata II SAL pictures. Tash suggested a Tuesday post - Toccata II-sday! A great idea! Here it is - we're doing one motif a week and I started in the top left corner.


My other SAL is of course Strawberry Garden with Lina. And here that one is. I've turned the corner at the top and I'm working down the other side now - well over half way there!


And finally, just because I need to show you, here's Pompeii Garden. This is part 4 finished on one of the four sides and a tiny start on part 5. I'm going to do both together as there's some backstitching on part 4 I don't want to do until part 5 is done (which fills in the two central bits and adds a roof on either side). Lots and lots to do but it's lovely. The amphora in the middle has come out so well.
