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!
