SAL Update

This week I received part 2 of Niky's Creations Mystery Sampler.  I quickly stitched it up in order to keep up with the rest of the 200 stitchers working on this little sampler.  I can't wait to see what she turns it into.  If you haven't visited her blog you must.  She has so many creative ideas for decorating your stitching items and creative pincushions and so much more.

I joined another SAL which started last friday. It is a summer design provided by Donna at By the Bay Needlearts.  I love the color palette.  I have started stitching it on LSL pearled barley 28ct.  I chose the same count fabric she used because it will fit into a 5x7 frame Yay!  I will be able to frame it myself.
I haven't filled in the background stitching.  She used GAST Oatmeal but I haven't decided if it will need that yet so I will wait until I finish stitching part 2 to decide.  Donna also used french knots for the center of the flowers but I may use beads instead.  I will wait until part 2 is stitched to decide. 
Off to do some stitching.  Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stitching!!

Nataly your SAL are looking good. I wanted to do the By the Bay one. Went to my friend house yesterday to print the chart and we got blank papers with by the bay at the top. Tried about 15 times and it started to print and she started to freak out. So I guess I won't be able to stitch this one. I think I will email Donna and see if she will mail to me. But I look forward to your progress.

I love the color palette of the second SAL. It's lovely. And I love the flower color of the first SAL. (I noticed they both have pink flowers, lol. It's one of my fave colors.) Grats on the progress Nataly.
