Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /6

I'm done with the May section of my Linen and Threads MSAL, and it was a pleasant experience when it comes to experiments. I didn't want to fill up the 'feathery' parts with a single block of color, so I tried out some gradients in this section - I moved from one color to another … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /6

Well, I seem to have gravitated towards blue for the April section of my Linen and Threads MSAL... I'd thought of adding more colors to the light blue sections, but in the end, I went with a single color. The newly-revealed May section also has similar huge components, and this time around, I think I'll … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /5

I eventually completed the March section of the Linen and Threads MSAL, after I worked on the border of the April section as a kind of a break. For the March section's flowers, I stuck with my idea of a 'scribbly' version, with one strand each of yellow and red held together. This resulted in … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /4

Oh the March section of the Linen and Threads MSAL! I'm still plodding through it since March turned out to be a busy month. I seem to have finished about 3/4th of the section so far. There are flowers in the gaps between the greens, which I will get to next. I'd kept the flowers … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /3

I've completed the February section of the Linen and Threads MSAL! I love that the SAL fulfills my expectations of using a lot of colors this year - the sections are not too large, and that means I can use a variety of colors spread across small areas. Aren't the flowers cute? 🙂 The section's … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /2

I'm joining the Linen and Threads Mystery Stitch Along for 2021 - yay! This year, the mystery sampler is inspired by the Talavera pottery tradition of Mexico and Spain. The pottery is decorated with an ensemble of colors, and I thought it's the perfect use for the various bits of colored embroidery floss I own. … Continue reading Linen and Threads MSAL 2021 /1

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 Haubergeon Blouse

After completing the forever sleeve(s) of the Haubergeon Sweater-based blouse that I was making for my mom, the body knitted up quickly. Blocking soon followed, and my mom has already worn it a few times now! (Mornings are finally a bit colder here...) I can definitely say that I loved the knit, even if the … Continue reading The Haubergeon Blouse

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

November's Linen and Threads SAL section was pretty intriguing due to the intricacy of the intersecting motifs in the design. I love how it turned out! I enjoyed the time I spent picking my colors. The little bit of blue that I used does not really stand out. I didn't think it would blend in … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Stitching in October was more fun than I'd thought it'd be, because mermaids! I decided on my colors pretty quickly, but I could see an element in this section that might be a problem. 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
