I believe I mentioned in my Theme-a-licious post that my EGA chapter is having a year-long SAL (Stitch-A-Long) with the theme being "Gardens". At the same time, they are also having a 2014 Stitching Challenge where finishes that you declare at the beginning of the year get you entries into a raffle. So, I decided to combine the two and try to finish three garden pieces.
First off, I would like to finish the Jane Nicholas stumpwork class piece (hereafter known as Medieval Floral):
Next up: Shakespeare's Garden
A couple of friends and I are going to try to get Spring Garden Gate done. I had a wee bit started already, but this is where I was after picking it up on the 1st:
The same two friends and I are going to start a Rosewood Manor Quakers piece. Two of us are doing Spring and the other is doing Summer.
And here's another random garden-themed piece that might get some work done on it..Sanctuary by The Drawn Thread.
I'll be participating in the Just Nan Stitch Along with Lady Scarlet's Journey, which seems to be awfully shy. I can't find a single picture I've taken of it, and it seems to have avoided my camera today as well...hmmm.... I have plenty of other Just Nan pieces to carry on with (Barnabee's Quest, for one).
I did not do so well with the ornament SAL last year, so this year, I'm trying to pick the smallest possible smalls for this year's SAL. Bonnie kindly sent me the 12 Dragonlets of 2012 (with the designer's permission), since I'm not on Facecrook. I think I can get one of these done a month.
Now I just need to attack that finished pile of ornaments that need to become three-dimensional....
|Gardens all year long...and I plan to finish at least three!|
