Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018

My Linen and Threads SAL project is now a wall hanging! I added decorative crochet edgings to the top and bottom of the piece, a dowel at the top, and a fringe at the bottom. The fringe is still wonky, and I'm hoping to find methods to straighten it. If all else fails, I'll just … Continue reading Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Hurrah! I did manage to finish the December section of the Mystery SAL from Linen and Threads. And that means the year-long project is now complete! I'd altered the section to shorten the dress of the human in this section, and I like that it turned out not too bad. I did make a mistake … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

The mermaids here appear the way they probably would if they were real - with uncovered chests. On a coffee table … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

I experimented with a cardboard sheet, some reclaimed yarn from a UFO, and a tapestry needle. I cut notches into the cardboard to use as … Continue reading Something New…

Looks like I forgot to talk about my completion of the September section of the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL! The single noteworthy event that happened this month was that I ran out of the pink thread. I stitched half of this section's pink part, and the skein ended, but when I rummaged through … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

August's Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL section was again a difficult one to color in, but I think I can grow to like how it turned out. 🙂 The coloring decision did involve some to and fro. The edges were a breeze, but the birds... Well, unless I made the tail feathers multicolored, which … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018
