New SAL

Here is a quick couple of pics.  I have been busy with some model stitching and finishing projects but had to jump on board this wonderful SAL.  It is A La Belle Etoile by C Mon Monde.  The SAL is being hosted by Valerie at the Threadbasket.  I loved this design the moment I saw it and jumped on board Round 2.  I am stitching it on 36ct Woodsmoke by Lakeside Linens and I had to change I thread color to do so.  I tried many different threads but they didn't give the same softness as the original design so I switched them back.  Above is the picture of Part 1.  I had to do some turbo stitching on Sunday in order to finish it by the deadline.  I, then received Part 2 Monday and put the final stitches in it last night.  Below is the picture of Part 2 finished.  I love it!  I stitched the berries in a smyrna cross to give them a little texture and I will be adding a charm or button to the house.  I am on the hunt for a holly button but it will depend greatly on what I can find.

We are headed into a cold snap and there is nothing better to do than cozy up in my warmest sweater and stitch the afternoon away!  Happy Stitching and thanks for visiting!

Nataly, Your C Mon Monde stitching is beautiful! C Mon Monde is one of my favorite designers. I too would have signed up for the SAL, if I had known. Great idea to use symrna stitches for texture. Your stitching is, as always, gorgeous.
