With 1st February, I was busy with another new project . . . beginning the Mystery SAL of the month with Hélène & Mahélia. Yep, no sooner does one SAL end than Hélène has already concocted a new mystery for us to stitch and solve.
This design is going to be 58 by 74 stitches, and there are 13 colours. I decided to break away from the usual aida (which I usually prefer for mystery SALs as it’s easier for counting) and cut myself a piece of “natural” Trento evenweave.
Stage one looked like this
hmmmm . . . I thought I could see the outline of a dragon, or at least the beginnings of something with wings.
Then came stage two
and that looks more like hair . . . maybe we’re stitching a cupid? It is the February SAL after all ^^ Stay tuned for next updates.
