First, anyone remember this? It was a birthday exchange I made last year. It's Little House Needlework's Miniature Home Gameboard on Silkweaver's Cocoa linen. I entered it in the Silkweaver Showcase and I was a finalist (well spotted Cathy!) No prize, but as it was the first and only thing I've ever entered I'm really pleased! I knew it worked well - I even bought a second piece of Cocoa to do it again myself. Congratulations to the other finalists and the winners!
On to the regular Tuesday posting - Toccata II with Tash. I did C and that gold square this week. I really struggled with the Japan thread and I'm not too happy about the end effect of the square. Hopefully I'll get more experienced using it as I go along.
Then yesterday was the start of my Winter's Eve SAL with Lina. This is where it was when I last stitched on it - way back in May last year. And I think I only worked on it once last year too! I finally got that metallic thread done and some of the satin stitching too.
I'm quite a long way along on this already but when I finish it I'll work on Mystery VIII as Lina's ahead of me on that one. Hopefully it'll balance out and we'll both have two finished Chatelaines at about the same time!
