This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs and I have a new start.
This is a design by Country Cottage Needleworks. I’ve done a couple of the other ‘menu’ designs by CCN and they’re great fun to stitch, and fairly quick too. So far I’ve done Coffee menu and Pie menu. I may add Cake menu to my stash at some point as I think they’ll look lovely on the wall all together.
I’m using a lovely fabric. It’s 28ct cashel linen in light mocha. It feels really nice and is easy to stitch on.
As I mentioned last time, I’ve marked the squares out for ease of counting, and I’m finding it really useful again. I’m hoping to finish this in two updates and I’ve made a good start on it. I’m exactly halfway down it so I’m bang on schedule.It’s making me hungry for ice cream while I’m stitching it. I could just fancy that banana split. Wonder if I’ll manage to finish this without succumbing to temptation LOL
For the stitch-a-long I’m linking up to these lovely blogs:
Avis, Claire, Gun, Sue, Constanze, Christina, Kathy, Margaret,
Cindy, Helen, Linda, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Megan,
Deborah, Clare, Mary Margaret, Renee, Jenny, Carmela, Jocelyn, Sharon
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.
