SAL

Im excited to post that Jamie and I started our SAL on Tuesday. We are stitching "Coffee Menu" by Little House Needleworks. We will be stitching on it on a Tuesday evening as we both work full time. Here's what it will look like one day

and here's my start so far


I am stitching it on 28 Ct Raw Cashel Linen with the recommended floss. Looking forward to seeing Jamie's progress! I thought i would get more done but i needed to measure and cut my fabric which took time and then i went to bed early as well!

Tonight i am off to a big award ceremony in Glasgow with a young person i work with. I'm very excited about it as there will be a lot of famous people there!! So i have the morning off but will techinically be "working" until about 1am. It's formal wear so i have my dress looked out already. I hope my young person finds something to wear, if in doubt i told him just to wear his school uniform. I work with quite disadvantaged young people so things like this event are a BIG deal.

Oh have a great night! Events like that are so rewarding - no pun intended. Great job on Coffee Menu. I started in a completely different place!!! It should be on my blog!

Coffee menu will be fun to do, and you got a nice start. I only recently discovered LHN patterns and am in love with them now. Hope your outing goes well, it sounds like it will be very exciting.

This is one of my favourites and very nearly bought it during my recent stash purchase.
