SAL updates

Last Friday saw the release of the next parts in the SALs I'm participating in; I spent the weekend working on the model, so I'll probably take a day or two this week to get caught up again. The model is a fairly large one; I'm almost a month in and probably only about halfway done, and I'm getting antsy to work on something new--is there such a thing as stitching ADD?!

Anyway, here are parts 1-12 in the Tempting Tangles Welcome SAL:

And parts 1-10 in the Ship's Manor Beautiful Sea SAL:

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!

SALs still going

At this point I'm fairly confident that I'll be able to finish both of the SALs that I'm in in a timely manner (for once!). The one closest to being completed is Tempting Tangles Welcome SAL, which has now had 12 parts released, with four parts yet to come. Here is mine up to part 11 (I'll share a picture with part 12 next week):

I'm looking forward to seeing what develops in the last row of this design.

Deb has another SAL that will start in March, and I think I'm going to try to stitch it as well because I like the motifs that are shown so far. You can find out about the new SAL here.

Ship's Manor Beautiful Sea SAL is now up to 10 parts released, and I'll share a picture of all 10 parts next week. For now, here are parts one through nine:

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!

Rosewood Manor designs

I completed five models for Karen last year, with the Hannah Bacon reproduction sampler being the only one released until now. With Nashville Market right around the corner, three of the five new Rosewood Manor designs are ones I stitched.

The first was Morning Glory Sampler:

Followed by Four and Twenty Blackbirds:

Then Merlins Tulips:

These designs are such a pleasure to stitch, and it's especially nice knowing that I will get them all back someday (even if I am already running out of wall space!).

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
