New SAL and Elliot

I'm not really sure how it happened - I asked if my Prairie Schooler project fitted into one of the SALs on Needlecraft Haven and have ended up hosting my first SAL lol

The SAL is open to anyone stitching any design by The Prairie Schooler - and if you're not already a member of Needlecraft Haven just apply and I'll authorise it. On the SAL page you just need to keep your own post to show your progress.

I'm doing 'S' from the alphabet series - it's for Mum on Mother's Day and hopefully I'll then do 'Q' for her birthday in May

and this is my progress from last night
Fabric: 32ct evenweave in Ivory
Thread: DMC stranded cotton
I am busy stitching Elliot for DD's birthday which is on Thursday - not long I know and she keeps sitting downstairs at night so I can't do it LOL I have just about finished the stitching so just have the backstitch to do and then to frame it.

And finally I have finished my square on Chris' RR - Needlecraft Haven 2011 RR. I stitched the strawberries on Chris' RR last year so chose to do the strawberries again - mmmmmm french knots, lovely. I'm pleased with it though, it was a nice design to do (from The World of Cross Stitching magazine)

Wow that's a lot of stitching for me - looks like my mojo has definately returned after a very quiet year last year. Thanks for popping by, happy stitching.

Lovely stitching. Enjoy your SAL.

Sally said...

Lovely stitching Clare. You've made a lovely start on the PS.

Nicola said...

Funnily enough Clare, I'd been thinking about asking you about a Prairie Schooler SAL, so I'll be joing in on NH. Your WIP's are coming along well.

That's a riot that you ended up being the host, I would love to do a SAL but I don't own one Prairie Schooler chart.

Love the RR you're working on.
