Claire, Sally and I started the Chocolate Shoppe by LHN as a SAL on Wednesday. I am stitching it on 28ct Cashel linen in Antique Ivory using the called for DMC threads. I had a bit of a trying start with my thread knotting, never to come undone, after about four stitches. I had to restart and would you believe it the thread knotted up again! I was all set to throw this across the room, but did get the knot out and after that things went a little better. As you can see I didn't get too much done, well I am a slooooooooooooow stitcher and also wasn't feeling the greatest. I am looking forward to next Wednesday when hopefully I'll make more progress. I do hope Claire and Sally are enjoying this SAL.
I've also made several cards but unfortunately can't show you them all. Some, although they have been received, I forgot to take photo's of, and one has not yet been sent. However, I can show you this one as it's for a school friend of mine who now lives in Canada, and who doesn't read my blog. BTW we haven't seen each other for thirty three years! I like to try and make Gina a card, whether it be a stitched one or a card craft one.
Unfortunately I didn't do too well with my ornament for January's Christmas ornament SAL. I started it on the Friday but we were out over most of the SAL weekend, and so didn't get any more stitched. I think I'm going to have to call this February's now and work on it during the week as weekends are normally busy one for me.
