SAL – A whole lotta latte #11


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 getting closer to a finish.

This is how it looked last time.

My plan was to do the saucer for the latest cup and I’ve done that, plus all the backstitch that I can, and a couple of drops of coffee on the side.

The fabric has been rolled around the frame a bit more so the top has vanished now. It won’t be seen again until the project is finished, which hopefully won’t be too long now. The last cup and saucer don’t look too fiddly so I’m hoping to get them done for the next update.

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.
