Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Two weeks of slow and steady progress on the Linen & Threads Mystery SAL has resulted in this —


This project will not really be framed — it’ll end up as a coffee table runner. I’d originally decided on a single color for the entire project, but then I didn’t like the thought of an entire runner in a single color. On fabric up close (vs. far away on a wall, say), my eye, at least, can only differentiate so many details in a single color. So I’ll use different colors for components wherever possible. The green is new thread (my original color of choice), the green+yellow combo is from old threads, and the thread for the flowers is of a different thickness altogether so its texture is slightly different from the rest of the stitching. Talk about variety! πŸ™‚

I’m getting good cross-stitch practice with this project, and though I’m nowhere near the end of the section for this month, I’m totally enjoying it! When I reach the other end of this section, I’ll work on securing the borders.

    1. Thank you, Ginny! I’m waiting to see next month’s section though it’ll be a while before I can start on it.
      Hope your fabric arrives soon. I’m sure you’ll catch up in no time. ☺


  1. I’ll be interested in how this comes out; I’m collecting the parts, but I won’t be able to take it on right away. I still have last year’s stashed. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m looking forward to your progress on the 2017. I’d loved that one but hadn’t made it. I thought I could make it along with this year’s one, but I don’t think I’ll have the time to fit both of them in. Maybe next year! πŸ˜‰


      1. I have another even more insane project on the frame now. I’ll get a photo in the next few days, once there’s something to look at. I’m pretty sure it’s proof I’ve finally flipped my beanie. πŸ™‚

    1. Hope you get to it someday! At the risk of sounding clichΓ©, I feel like I’ve met a long-lost friend πŸ˜€ and wonder why I didn’t cross stitch for so long.
