Stitch-a-thon weekend

It was the Stitch-a-thon weekend over on the Friends Gather board, so I pulled out Spring Snapperland and worked towards a finish. I forgot to take a before photo, but here's the after:


Not much more to do! I changed the brown flowers round the edge to the two shades of purple used elsewhere - I didn't think brown was very spring-like. And I must have forgotten to pack two of the GAST threads needed for the third block. I know I have them so they must be in the sea container. Good thing it turns up soon! I also need buttons. I've decided to use little buttons instead of the snappers.

Today is supposed to be my SAL on Evening in the Park but Lina isn't well so I think I'll try to finish this off as much as I can instead...

  1. This looks great, not far to go now. I have this in my stash sharing the charts half each with my Mum. Neither of us have got round to doing it though but seeing yours one of us will have to!

    \Have a nice week :)
