Last year I participated in the smalls SAL hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus. But I was not regular in posting each month. So this year I have decided to stitch the Lucie heaton fairies and at last I will be framing it. So here is the January fairy.
I have stitched this on 14ct aida with two strands of anchor embroidery threads. Back stitches are done with 1 strand. It took nearly 4 hrs to finish this fairy. The border looks plain. so I thought of adding some more stitches to make it fancier. Will show it in my next months SAL.
Also I am stitching the rainbow sal . It is an interesting one for those who love mono color cross stitch. Borders are worked in two colors and each blocks in different colors. you can finish a block in one or two sittings. Here is my block1.
I am linking this post to smalls SAL -January check in here. You can find so many interesting smalls stitched by other cross stitchers.
I have done with a set of pillow cases and my granny stripe blanket is growing nicely. I will come up with pillow cases in my next post. Till then happy cross stitching.
