I have been working on yet another new start, the new Blackbird Loose Feathers.
I could not resist it! :)
So now I have 4 (yikes!?) projects in rotation.
I feel like i am having a round robin with myself! LOL
So after a while on Mary Ann Blackburn I switched back to Rachel Hyde.
With this SAL there are specific sections to do each month so it doesn't seem so overwhelming. This month was the large alphabet, which has rice and eyelet stitches. I made a few alterations of which letters were rice and which were eyelet, and also put the U and V in their proper places.
It wasn't until late last night when I realized that there was no Z???
I guess Rachel must have run out of room!
I am enjoying this one a lot, can't wait for what is next in May.
I have also decided to join in the new Papillon SAL,
Around the World in 80 stitches!
It is a 24 month SAL so it will be a really loooooooong stitch, but I am enjoying the specialty stitches in Rachel and would love to learn some more. So I am working on picking colors and fabric, which takes me too much time. It is so hard picking colors for something that is a mystery!
If you are interested in more information, here is the link to Yvonne's site Papillon Creations. Here you can sign up for her newsletter which gives the info about the SAL. The cost is a one-time fee of 2 euros. How can you beat that?? I am looking forward to seeing everyone's choice of colors.
And take a look at this gorgeous new wallet I got from Natalia!
She does beautiful sewing and I just love this black and white bird design.
It is just perfect for a project!
So that's all for now :D
I am going to get back to Mary Wigham for a bit and into the IHSW weekend.
I will be traveling this weekend but I hope to get some stitching in too!
Thanks so much for visiting and commenting!!
Have an awesome week and Happy Stitchings!!!
