The start of a new SAL challenge

New year, new SAL challenge over on the HAED board. I decided to swap the chart I was doing this year in the hope of actually finishing something. So here's a long-standing WIP - Earth by Sara Butcher - before and after my weekend.

Before


After


I did about 1000 stitches, which I was pleased with. The chart is far more detailed than my other HAEDs, so it's very, very slow progress!

  5. Great work, Nicki. She's looking lovely.

    I've still got today to go on the SAL as I'm stitching to US time this weekend. Isn't it nice to get back to a neglected project and make a whole lot of progress.
