I know we are almost halfway through January but....HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I'm running a little behind with everything at present, for some reason it always takes me a lot longer to get in gear after Christmas and get back to my normal routine. It doesn't help that OH keeps working from home and disrupting my routine too!
Well.....I said this year I would be forgoing all the SAL's and just doing my own thing without any pressure and just enjoying myself.....and I've already gone back on that. I knew that I was joining in the HAED 2013 SAL and I've already blogged about that, but nothing else but a couple of friends of mine are doing a Lizzie*Kate SAL using the cat/dog lessons for people charts. I was very kindly given this chart by a friend and have wanted to stitch it for a long while so I've decided to join too.
I've got some lovely 32ct Raw Floba (bit like linen) to stitch it on and I ordered the speciality threads. I'm really excited! It's only a 4 hours commitment each week so it shouldn't have an impact on what else I choose to stitch.
I have a very small update on my HAED SAL piece to share:
It's stitched on 18ct Pewter Aida and should turn out at just under 8"x8" when finished, which I thought was a nice size for framing. It's very confetti heavy, but that should mean lots of great detail too.
I'll try and get through everyone's blogs, but I might not get chance to leave comments as there are a lot to catch up with, I will try though!
