This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and I’ve started a new project.
Before we get onto the new project though, look what else I’ve been doing! I finished off Snowflake Serenade. Usually I just bung them in the ‘Waiting for framing’ box once they’re stitched, but I found some pretty fabric at Secret Garden Quilting and managed to use it, instead of adding it to the fabric collection LOL
I put some more poles up in my craft room as they worked so nicely for the Cottage of the month series. I think Snowflake looks rather nice there and I have room for several more on the poles. There’s an incentive to get the sewing machine out!
So, on to the newest project. This is another small one and is by Lizzie*Kate. I’ve had it in my stash for ages. I think I bought it on one of my stash shopping trips in Orlando a few years ago. It caught my eye and I ‘needed’ it LOL I bought the yummy overdyed threads at the same time as the chart and had put a lovely fabric with it so it was ready to go. The fabric is 28 count Cashel linen in vintage dune. It’s two-tone and looks like it would if someone spilt coffee on it, but in a nice way.
Cute, isn’t it. I’m way, way ahead of schedule now. I may sneak an extra project into my plans for this year, and I do have something in mind.
Ooh, and I found some lovely fabric in my stash that’ll be great for framing this. The two greens in the fabric match the threads perfectly. Maybe I’ll get that done before the next update and have it hanging up with Snowflake.
For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:

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.
