I posed this question in my last post, for having 8 projects going at the same time. The consensus was that I was not. So there you have it. I am having so much fun stitching the mystery SAL. Over on the forum About.com Cross-Stitch we have going on what we like to call a SWAT (Stitch Week-A-Thon), it started this past Saturday and will last until next Saturday. The rules are to stitch all day like the IHSW on one of the two Saturdays and as much or as little as you want or can during the week between. You can share beginning photos, progress photos during the week or wait until the last day and then share it’s up to you. The main thing is to have fun, fun and more fun stitching and drooling over everybody's work. For this SWAT I'm working on Around the World in 80 Stitches, I know there are several others that indicated that they were going to join this SAL. Like I said I actually started mine last Friday and this is a few of my progress photos.
My colors I showed in my last post were chosen randomly even before I got the first chart, in addition to the 8 floral colors and the 3 greens there is to be a metallic. Instead I chose a Light Effect from DMC E130, I think it was a great choice. There are 2 beads that I haven’t got yet, I will be going to stitch night this evening so I’ll be in search for the perfect colors.
I hope you’ve signed up for this month’s IHSW it begins this coming Saturday, if you haven’t go on over to Joysze’s blog and sign up. I know what I’ll be working on, how about you? As always thank you to all of my followers new and old for stopping by and sharing your thoughts and comments. Now I’m off to make some wonderful little xxs (well not all xxs this time).
