Linen and Threads SAL 2018

I completed June-July of the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL without too many hassles. This section is not as 'wow' for me as some of the other ones, but since it is not 'argh' either, I'll take it. 🙂 If you recall, I cobbled together the vine at the center from bits and pieces … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Linen and Threads SAL 2018

What do you know, this is apparently my 100th post here. It's just a number, I know, and I discovered this fact accidentally since I don't usually bother with stats. I'm pleasantly surprised that my slow blogging has continued long enough to churn out this many posts, and to make some friends along the way. … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

L&T SAL - April finish

April band of the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL - am I glad that it's a small section, the smallest so far? I sure am, I'd still be toiling away on the project otherwise.

If I end up keeping the border, … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

L&T SAL - February finish

This section was nowhere as tedious as last month's, because it has repeating patterns, which means I wasn't looking at the chart every few stitches. (I still ended up frogging a few stitches here and there though. … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

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. … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018

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 … Continue reading Linen and Threads SAL 2018
