SAL- Autumn House #2

Even with all of my canning and preserving, I worked on multiple WIPs the last three weeks!Autumn house got the most done on it out of all the projects. Here is where I left off last time:

And here is where I am now:

Here is a short video of me stitching the Autumn House.

I also started a project, which for the first time I designed myself and it even has some embroidery elements. I also used a 32 count linen which I have never been brave enough to use before. It took me a bit to get used to stitching over 2 squares but I got it!

I have some tweaking to do. Still not sure about the red hearts.And the most exciting project I worked on the last three weeks is big project #1 out of two I have as a goal this year for my 20 for ’20…Fraktur Hex by Modern Folkart Embroidery

You’ll see more on this next time.Thanks for checking in with me and I will see you in October!I belong to a group of fine stitchers in this SAL. We all stitch different things during our check-ins so please go visit their links below to see what we are all up to! I would like to welcome Susan and Anne to the group!

SAL – Autumn House #1

I am sorry for such a late update. I didn’t forget. I had to work a full day today and then had to get 7 pints of pickled beets canned. Lots to do to catch up since we got back from our trip to Ireland on Thursday night.

I decided that I needed a bit of a “palette cleanser” after such a difficult last project so I started on the “Autumn House” which was a free download from designer Brooke Nolan.

Super cute isn’t it? I have worked on the Spring House in the past but have not finished it yet.

With a 7 hour flight to Ireland and a 7 hour flight back with lots of time to wait in the airport I got a lot accomplished on this piece.

Here is where I ended on Thursday night so far:

I promise a better photo next time.

This group of stitchers are working on some pretty fantastic pieces. Please visit their blogs to see what they are up to.

I look forward to posting my progress on this project in three weeks. See you then! -MM
