Snowdrop SAL – Step 1


I may have said something a little while ago about not join in any more SALs because I have so many projects to work on. Well, about that…

I decided to join in on the Snowdrops SAL from Esther over at Brodeuse Bressane. It is just a little design, 88×88 stitches and should work up pretty quickly. Sadly, the SAL has closed to new members, but the final design (along with a larger outside border) will eventually be available on her etsy shop.

Keeping in mind my desire to not buy any more stash than I need to complete projects already started, I decided to do a deep drive into my fabric collection to see what I had that would work. I ultimately decided on a piece of Sky from Enchanting Lair. I think it is 28 count Lugana, but I could be wrong.

For my fibres, I am using DMC blanc and some unknown silk that comes from my big mess of silk thread odds and ends (some came from Dinky Dyes oops packs, some from HDF, and some from other sources, so I really have no idea what it is).

And here is step 1 complete:

I think it looks delicate and lovely. I can’t wait to get started on step 2!

If you are stitching along with the Snowdrops SAL too I would love to know. Be sure to leave a comment below.

    I decided to forgo on this SAL. It looks really cute thought. By the way, if you are a member of Brodeuse Bressane’s Facebook page, you can get the pattern even if you hadn’t registered for the SAL.

  2. OH PRETTY! I love that you are using those “whatevertheyare” threads and scraps…it’s amazing what can be stitched on some random piece of fabric.

    Instead of following the SAL, I think I’ll just watch your progress…it’s beautiful and random 😀

    Beautiful. I am so glad I missed the discussions of this SAL or I would have been in the middle of it too and I so need to concentrate on what I have started and my commitment stitching this year.
