Here is our progress to date on our current SAL ~ Blackbird Designs Autumn Song. Sandra and I are stitching for three hours a week on this one and have just finished week 6.
Here is mine
and here is Sandra's
You can see Sandra has completed a little more in her time than what I have but that is fine. As we both agree, we are supposed to be 'enjoying the journey'.
We are both really enjoying this project and once the stitching is finished we then have the assembling to do which consists of painting the box and applying a crackle finish and lining it which could prove to be quite a challenge. I am also going to attempt to 'antique' my lining fabric which consists of removing the colour and then over-dyeing with tan fabric dye. Sounds interesting!! Watch this space LOL!!
Sandra has some beautiful photos in her album of recent snowfalls at her place on the other side of the world whilst here in Australia, some parts of the country are sweltering in temperatures in the 40's and other parts are having horrific floods. Isn't the weather crazy!!
