I finished my last Round Robin last week. I am taking a break from Round Robins for a while to do some personal stitching. I can’t post it yet until the recipient receives it, but I will when that happens.
So I picked up my Ella to stitch on for a few nights…stitch and rip, stitch and rip. Then I heard the news that Passione Ricamo was opening a new Stitch-A-Long. It is open now to purchase and, YES, of course I am going to do it! I haven’t finished the last Mermaid SAL, but YES I want to do another one! So I signed up and received my list of materials. We have no idea what it is, but it is to celebrate the designers 20 years designing. I know it will be beautiful. I already have my fabric and threads:
I had purchased this fabric from Stephanie for Lavender & Lace’s Angel of Spring. It is Nantucket Sky in 16ct Aida. But when I was getting ready to start it, I was afraid the wings would not show up well. Passione Ricamo’s Laura, suggested a few of Stephanie’s hand dyed fabrics for the SAL and Nantucket Sky was one of them. And luckily I have a 26 x 36 piece as according to the stitch count, I will need a 25 x 33.5 piece. I can’t wait to see how a PR design looks on Aida. I am so excited about this SAL. If you are interested in joining, you have time. The first section won’t be released until March 25th, so there is still time to go to the Passione Ricamo site and sign up.
So I pulled out the Mermaid SAL last night and decided I need to get that going and hopefully finish as I will need the scroll frame it is on. I will post a picture of my mermaid progress later this week. You can see my original start on this one here. Have you ever done a Stitch A Long?
