I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. I have so much to show you.... I definitely shouldn't have taken so long to post.
As I mentioned in my last post I am participating in 2 SAL's this year. One is currently going and the other one is from a couple years ago and I decided to join them together. Since my last post I was working on nothing but them so I could get caught up....Big mistake by the time the April block was released I had no interest in stitching it LOL so I took a week break from it and worked on other projects, but I did return to the SAL and am now all caught up and waiting for the new blocks in May.....
Here are the first 4 blocks from Postcards of the World by Cloudsfactory
|January - Venice|
|February - Paris|
|March - London|
|April - Moscow|
Now the second SAL is Once upon a time sampler from The Frosted Pumpkin, which was released in 2014. I currently have a love hate relationship with it. I chose rustic/oatmeal colored fabric and the white in the pattern just isn't showing up that great in photos, it's not bad in real life but none of my photos are doing it justice, I have actually tried 3 different types of thread hoping to make it pop more I have settled on DMC satin thread.
|January - Snow white|
|February - Frog Prince|
|March - Three little pigs|
|April - Goldilocks & 3 bears|

Then I started working on Peter Pan by Bothy Threads. I have quite a few of these fairy tale kits and I really love them. This is going to be a really fun project.

I am still working on my train projects but I have also been reading a bit more so not as much progress was made. I have decided to give them some love on Friday just in case I didn't get anything done on them during the week.
