Still keeping up

I think this has to be a record for me, keeping up with not only one, but two, SALs. I'm starting to think that I might be able to go all the way with these!

Here is the Tempting Tangles Welcome SAL, parts 1-9:

Now that the word "welcome" is finished (except for some bits at the bottom), I'm looking forward to seeing the parts that come next.

This is The Beautiful Sea by Ship's Manor, parts 1-7:

It will be half way to completion after the next part, and I'm hoping for more little sea critters.

I spent a day getting caught up with those pieces, and another day working on one of the designs in Sue Hillis' Dark Shadows leaflet:

This is stitched over-1 on 20ct Peoria Purple linen from WDW, and I used petite black beads for the dangling bits at the bottom. There are six charts in this leaflet, and I want to stitch them all; I bought the WDW linen in Aztec Red and Blue Jeans as well, so I think I'll stitch two on each color. Maybe I'll have them all completed by Halloween...

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!


  1. Both of your SAL projects are looking good as does your Halloween piece. Have a great week!

  2. Congrats on keeping up with the SALs, they both look fantastic! And I love that first finish. I think I need to add that leaflet to my wish list.
