SAL – A whole lotta latte #9


This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and A whole lotta latte is on page two now.

This is how it looked last time.

I’d finished page one and I was ready to scroll round to start page two. I decided to try to finish the purple cup, with its saucer for this update and this is how it looks now.

I even finished the backstitch on it so I’m rather pleased with that. There’s a lot more of the stripes cup to do than there was of the purple one but I’m hoping to complete that before the next update. Wish me luck!

For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:

Look how many of us there are now! Do allow for people being in different time zones, so not posting all at the same time, but it’s well worth doing a bit of blog hopping to see all the lovely projects that are being worked on.
