~ Another SAL Finish ~

Do you know what a griffin is? I didn't!! Well it is a fictional character with the head of an eagle and the body of a lion and he is winged as well!

So here is our sixth finish for the year.

" Whitman's Griffin Tin"

I didn't add much 'creativity' to my version this time and stitched and finished fairly much as the pattern suggested but Sandra added her own touches and made hers just a little different.

Here is Sandra's...

The fabric we have used to line our tins is once again a piece that Sandra has chosen and it is just the most perfect match for the tin and don't you just love those fat little scissors!!

We are now working on our seventh project and here is a preview of my fabric and threads.

Can you guess what it is? It is a very long skinny piece of linen and lovely autumn coloured threads....hhhhhhmmmmmm, wonder what it might be :))))

  1. Thank you for another lovely stitch along Chrissie, I have enjoyed them all so far this year, and our new one is lovely too, I almost didn't want to stop stitching after my allotted time.

  2. I have a tin like that - Whitmans not the Griffin type - it may still have some chocs in it too..yuk! Love what you did with it.

  3. Love the smalls you and Sandra have made for your tins :)

  4. You and Sandra make a winning team! Beautiful work, both of you.

    Hmmm, on the next project, I'm guessing BBD Autumn Bouquet? I don't know. Hmmm. Can't wait to see the pictures!

  5. Your tins are fabulous! I love them! You both did a great job - what a fun SAL! No idea on your next project but love the colors.

  6. Lovely work by the two of you, as always. I find it interesting to see how your projects are finished off and the different techniques.

    Can't think of what your next one will be. :)

  7. I am thinking a skinny pin pillow maybe by Blackbird?

    I just love this tin, it is way neat! Congrats on the finish!

  8. Lovely tins by both of you - so clever and creative!

    As to your next project, initially I thought maybe PS' Autumn Winds but then I checked your floss and that can't be it! I am thinking Siobhan's guess might be the one since you both have stitched BBD before. Whatever it is I'm sure it will be just lovely!

  9. Chrissie, what you create with your hands is remarkable! Your home must be absolutely lovely!

  10. Both tins are just beautiful. Great finishes

  11. What lovely little tins and full of such beautiful stitched pieces!

  12. Both tins are gorgeous, congratulations

  13. Lovely!!!
