Totally Useless SAL / A New Start
I pondered for days trying to find a nice jar/bowl to do the Totally Useless SAL. Firstly I decided on a long tall jar and the other morning I used the last Coffee in the Jar and I thought why not use this as you can put orts in the lid too. So here is my stitching orts for last month. A couple of DMC wrappers in there too. There looks more than what there really is as I haven't squashed them down.
Here is my new start Roosters. I discarded the aweful Aida and have gone for a beautiful 28 count green dyed Silkweaver linen.
It is a Permin Kit so there was no floss to pull and it was already organised on the card. I have had this kit for quiet a while. I was sitting there looking at the fabric when I noticed that I needed to add white to the threads as the chooks on this piece aren't stitched and so I would end up with green ones. It started me off giggling at the thought of green chooks.
My surprise stitch this week is "Oh Holy Night" a Christmas ornament from Gift of Stitching magazine and it is a new start and as it is only small I could possibly finished it. I have another new start coming up so keep tuned.
I still have DH home with his arm so I am not getting as much stitching done as I would have normally. We have finally heard from DD in South America. The managed to do the Inca Trail and they have been out to Lake Tittacu (sp?) I am too lazy to look it up.
We have a Bible Study group tonight and tomorrow at church we are having a themed luncheon - teenage food - so it will be full of junk.......LOL.
