Lots of SAL pics

Apologies for the delay in posting my SAL pictures, but here they all are in one go.

First up, the weekend SAL with Karen on the CHS alphabet. It was M for Mermaid for me this time round. You'll have to trust me that she's holding a comb and mirror as the GAST Slate thread doesn't show up well on my fabric or in the photo. It's good enough in real life for me not to bother changing it though.


Next was Monday's SAL with Lina on Mystery VIII (for me, and Winter's Eve for Lina). I had a great day and finished the snowflakes for part 3 and a whole swan for part 4.


And last, but certainly not least, it's back to two motifs a week on Toccata II with Tash. I did the peacock and 'h' this week. I've been dying to do that peacock but saved it for now when I'd be without a frame. And it makes such a difference to the colours of the piece. I love it!


And here's a close-up...

  15. They all look great!

    I have a small confession to make - I did stitch on Z last weekend but I couldn't get motivated to finish it. I did spend quite a bit of time on it today though so hopefully it'll be finished *this* weekend! ;)
