Linen and Threads SAL 2018

January section of the Linen and Threads SAL is complete! I took some time off the cross-stitch part to make a hem stitch lined, fringed edge, for which I used scrap yarn from my earlier knitting projects. I’m much happier working on the project now, since I don’t run into runaway threads from the edges. πŸ˜‰

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - January

The color difference between left and right is due to a shadow. The embroidery thread is evenly colored.

Here’s a closeup of the hem stitch border. Excuse the color difference – I clicked the pictures on different days.

I’m pretty excited to start on February. I just discovered long-armed cross stitch, and I’m using it for the border of the February section. I’ll obviously post a picture later that shows its fabulous texture. πŸ™‚

This section is smaller when compared to last month’s, so I’m hoping to catch up. (Not keeping my fingers crossed though, since February is also shorter, making it a bit hectic so far.)

    • Thank you, Kat! Everyone seems to agree it’s some medieval scene. There are apparently gonna be animals next, so I guess that’ll make it a little clearer? Whatever it is, as long as it’s interesting to work on, I don’t mind guessing and waiting. πŸ˜‰
