I have a happy dance to share with you . . .
“Unicorn and Maiden” by Joan Elliott is officially finished – yay! I didn’t quite follow all the backstitch detail; leaving off some metallic stitching on the bottom of gown and maiden’s floral wreath, but I think the seed beads give it enough bling.
I really enjoyed stitching this design, and thank SAL members for their encouragements throughout. I couldn’t have done it without you.
A finish means a new start for next time . . . Avis and I started thinking about our next SAL project months ago, and are eager to begin. We’ve decided to work on the same project again (which is how this SAL originally came about) and plumped for another Ink Circles.
We stitched “Cirque des Cercles” together, a few years ago and this time we’re going to stitch “Cirque des Triangles”. You can see my “Cirque des Cercles” here, still not framed. I’ve chosen to stitch CdesT in exactly the same colours. Threadworx “Wild Poppies” on a 25 count Lugana Forest Green evenweave.
If anyone has “Cirque des Triangles” in their chart stash and fancies joining us – please contact Avis. Or if anyone simply wants to join in with a different project – contact Avis who is our co-ordinator.
We are quite a large group of ladies, worldwide, working on different needlecraft projects, and showing updates every 3 weeks to keep us all motivated.
You can admire SAL members’ stitching by clicking on the following links.

Next SAL update will be on 19th February.
