SAL – Los gatos – 04


This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and Los Gatos is almost done.

I’m still doing just one colour at a time. This is what it looked like last time with all of the yellow and dark grey done.I’d already made a good start on the pale grey when I posted last time and finished it off quite easily. Then I got started on the orange/yellow. I love how it adds a layer of richness to the design. That’s 4/5 colours done now so I should have a finish for the next update.

I’m already thinking of what to stitch next and having seen several of my fellow bloggers doing other types of embroidery, I’m tempted to try to finish one of the projects that have been sitting in the WIPs box for some time. I just need to find one that doesn’t need the large scroll frame as the Hooties are sitting on that and I don’t want to have to keep swapping them over.

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

Avis, Claire, GunConstanze, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, CindyHeidi, Jackie, SunnyMegan, DeborahMary Margaret, ReneeCarmelaSharon, Daisy, Anne, Connie, AJ, Jenny, Laura, Cathie, Linda, Helen

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.
