SAL #4 Stitching ABC – D is for …..

D is for Darling Debbierose Darning, Ha ha Darning is something I never do.  Once upon a time we mended socks, now they seem to get tossed. The only darning I do, which is rare would be on a hand knit or crochet piece to darn the ends in.   If you do partake in the ancitne art of darning?  DO you use a Darning Egg, I have seen a few in antique posts and find them very interesting.  At great way to not stab yourself during repairs.

Please hop on over and follow the wonerful SAL members, their blogs and posts will not disappoint.    Now if you pop over to my fellow SAL members, I know you wil not be dissappointed.

SAL #2 Stitching ABC – B is for …..

B is for Button.  This is a cute one, as I am fond of buttons.  Plus I have started the border of the surrounding ones as I will go round.   My MOTH had a chuckle as he also noticed I am a friend of the Victorian Button Collectors on Face Book.  They have a brilliant display.  I recall playing in the Nana’s button box as a child.  We would choose our favourite and substitute it for the playing pieces on the Monopoly Board.

Memories  – gotta love them, makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

Another project on the go – LOL.  This one is a lot of fun and while I have made loads of progress in the first 3 weeks, don’t hold me to that schedule.  A few of the letters are large/stitch intense.   Here is the letter A.  I wonder what other craft items you can add to the list for A is for applique – can you add to the list …

SAL#3 Birth Record (growing) & SAL#15 Save the Stitches (no progress)

As the end of the financial year looms I have been toiling away on one item only.  Mainly as the baby is due soon – therefore my number one priority in the crafting arena.

I am enjoying this little cross stitch especially as the back stitch makes it come to life.

Hi Everyone.

Unfortunately no progress on my SAL as I had a little segue for a birthday Biscornu.  I decided to put a line backing on this one for a change and it was awkward to stitch.

Do pop over to the other wonderful members in our group, they always have such wonderful progress.  See you all in 3 weeks.
