A couple of updates

I've finally finished Part 5 of Fleur et Papillon, just in time for Part 6 to come out, and that will be the final part and so the pressure will be off!

I've also completed Part 2 of Confetti of Hardanger by Abi Gurden of Bee's Needleworks.  This is a SAL on The Stitch Specialists Yahoo Group.  Part 2 was the cable stitch and double backstitch around the motifs.  I enjoyed doing the cable stitch but not the double backstitch so much.  It was done from the reverse side of the fabric and that felt really weird!  I'm not sure I've got it done right now but it's going to stay the way it is!

Now to catch up with the Many Years Ago sampler and Tribute to Ackworth, and then get back to Around the World in 80 Stitches, I'm still on Part 3 and I think Part 6 is due.  Also, so many new projects I want to much to stitch, so little time!

I have just finished part 3 of the Confetti of Hardanger but must confess that Around the World in 80 Stitches has gone into hibernation for a while. I found the colour selection too hard and want to see how others do theirs. A friend in Christchurch, NZ is trying to encourage me so I may relent and start it again. You are certainly a keen stitcher of SALs! Well done.
