6-17-17 Mira March SAL & General Year Long SAL updates 2017

                                                      Hello my Stitching Friends!

 I hope this finds everyone doing well. It's time for a past due update. Things are still busy at work so I am trying to stitch while I can. So where I left off with Deepest Love , I have moved the scroll frame up and am continuing to work on the outer ribbon...Not much else done on this one yet. It's coming up in my rotation.
Up next is a finish! x happy stitchy dance/wiggle x Crimson Cardinal's Yuletide Song by Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles Designs
The pattern suggest using Gloriana Silks but also has conversions for Dinky Dyes and DMC. I used DMC Threads and personalized it a little with a MH seed bead(62032) for the eye and added some sparkle to the border using Kreinik Blending Filament 007 in the border and added  sparkle to the snow on the branches using Kreinik Blending Filament 032. This will be finished as a wall hanging later on.
Next up happy mail.. To be stitched at a much later date. 

We have some SALs going on and another coming up August 1st. Be sure to subscribe to the blog to see all of the updates from the members of Cross Stitchers/Bloggers/Youtube Community (private community)

Until next time... Happy Stitching and may you have smokin' needles xxx

And last but not least Nora Corbett's Deepest Love ( Mirabilia), working on the middle ribbon up to scroll frame top then back to the body and working up..

Mirabilia progress and a finish

Hello my fellow SAL friends!

I thought it was about time I shared some progress again.  So here we go!

Deepest Love is coming along.  I don't know why but each time it comes up in my rotation it seems like I always have a busy day and am lucky to add one length of thread to it.  But while I may not be adding much to it I am enjoying every stitch!

For the General Year Long SAL I am hoping to finish the rest of the Brookes' Books Advent Animals.  This proud looking fellow is Hamilton Horse.  

Hope you all are getting lots of stitching in!
