SAL Progress

Today I am sharing with you two new starts that were started last month.  It seems that I get a little spurt of stitching mojo when I have a couple of days off from work and then life gets in the way and I lose my mojo.  I hope to work on this over the holiday break and get a couple more finishes in this year.
 
 
This SAL was offered by The Threadbasket and designed by Tournicoton.  I am using the recommended DMC floss and stitching it on 30ct WDW Cocoa. ( a personal favorite)
If you haven't visited the Threadbasket it is a great place to get European charts.  The owner will also translate french charts for you if you need her to.  Great service!!

The next SAL was offered by Donna at By The Bay Needlearts.  It is darling.  I am stitching it on 32 ct Light mocha and using assorted DMC threads.  The overdyed the is a Color Variations thread by DMC.  Not too shabby.   I love Donna's designs because she takes into consideration standard frame size and this will fit into a 5x7 frame which means I can do it myself!  Yippee! 
Have any of you laid your eyes on anything new that you MUST stitch??  There is soooo much inspiration out there.  I love the new winter design by By The Bay and I have to have the new release by Blackbird Designs.  It's full of lovely little projects to finish.  Can't wait to get my hands on it.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!  Happy Stitching!

Both new starts look fantastic. I love the designers very much but haven't stitched anything by By the Bay so far. But next year I will. I have seen her new winter design and it's so beautiful.
