“Au coeur de la nuit” beginnings of a new SAL

I mentionned the other day that I had signed up to follow a new SAL . . . stitching an Isabelle Vautier design that I’ve had in my stash for a while: “Au coeur de la nuit”.  Corinne, the lady organising the SAL doesn’t really have an idea exactly how long it’s going to take us . . . we are just going to stitch along, at the pace she sets, with a new objective every fortnight. Here is the photo of my first stage

SAL IV Claire01

I am stitching on a 28 count  Zweigart Trento ‘natural”  fabric, using DMC 902 and B5200.  This is the first time I’ve used this particular fabric – I bought myself a huge wad of it last year and had been waiting for the perfect design . . . and when I decided to join this SAL I knew it was the ideal fabric to use.
