I had the bright idea that, since I was home, I would get a start on the Grand Abecedaire SAL. (Ha ha!) Three unsuccessful starts later (grrr), I've dropped the linen floss and have decided to go with regular DMC (grey and pink). On the other hand, my jar for the Totally Useless SAL, is nice and packed...
Do Halls wrappers count... ; -)
Nothing too interesting in here - mostly thread bits (lots of linen thread bits, though!), bits of aida and fabric scraps from the mini heart cushion and "Time for tea -with Max and me" (which I still haven't stuffed - eek!), some floss wrappers - oh, and a bent needle (I'm very hard on needles...) I wonder what next month will look like...? ;-)
One down, one to go...
Design: free pattern from Gazette94
Fabric: 18-count ecru aida from DMC
Floss: DMC 4200 (red/pink variegated)
Dimensions: 2.5" x 2.5 "
I finished up, except for a bit of backstitching, the NOEL ornament. I've never used the variegated floss before, but I'm nevertheless quite happy with how this one turned out. I'm planning to stitch a second one in green variegated floss, and then stitch the two of them together, maybe with some Christmas fabric as a small border? I haven't quite thought out all the logistics yet, I still have to pick up some green floss - and since I'm stuck at home with this bug, that's not going to happen any time soon...
