SAL Progress

I thought I would post my progress on the SAL that I am doing with the LHN yahoo group. It's coming along good. I am really getting hooked on Little House Needleworks. I have two other charts waiting to do. One is already kitted up, so maybe before I finish this SAL, I may start it.

Totally Useless SAL

I came across Yoyo's blog- and she had started this SAL. I thought it was a good idea, I had wondered what others did with the little bits left over thread. So I decided to join in.

Little House Needleworks SAL

I'm starting a SAL today with the LHNS yahoo group. It runs thru Sept. The theme is women, and I choose "Curly Q Ewe". I'm doing it on Water Lily jobelan. I goofed and forgot to buy the crescent colors for it, but I can start and get those this week.


I have gotten addicted to making biscornu's and have wanted to make a 15 sided one, so when saw this one by Just Nan I had to have it. It's going a little slow because I have too many projects started.

I'm doing this on 28ct. Antique White and Mint Green Linen.

This is new to me, I'm not a writer so I don't know how often I will be posting. Maybe I'll get the hang of this. I enjoy all forms of needlework even though I don't know how to do every stitch there is. It would be nice one day to learn more. Right now I do counted cross stich, redwork embroidery, beadwork and a little sewing. I will try to post some pics at a later time.
