Save the Stitches SAL

It's check in time for the SAL hosted by Avis and Claire

I said that I would finish the section I'd started and, much to my own amazement, I did!



There wasn't much metallic stitching in this area at all.



And here's the full sampler so far.



Every time I post this sampler, people ask me the size of the finished item, so I had a look at the instructions.  The answer is, I don't know!  The size of the fabric we were told to cut is 20" x 37", so I'm guessing it will be a bit smaller than that!

Love this project - I would like to try some blackwork myself if I only had the time. :) )As I can't log in with my WP or Open ID I'm trying LJ this time, see if it works.) Jule of From The Boudoir

Your sampler is looking magnificent, I love that some of the squares aren't totally filled in but have space around the central designs.

It's looking great Wendy. There's so much detail in it. If they do another one for 2015 I might be tempted.
