Days 7 to 16

I am keeping up the pace of one number per day and it's looking good so far.

I love the image of St. Lucy for day 13.


Days 1 to 6 completed

This is stitched over 1 on 32count Belfast Vintage Grain using the DMC conversion.
By the way, what do you think the animal in number 4 is?  A hare or a dog maybe?

I am trusting the colour choices in this one, on the ring they are all shades of brown/sludge but once on the fabric they take on coloured hues, the little woman in 6 is a great example.  She is stitched in 3021, 433 and 3782 but they look more like red and blue together.


I have made a Start!

I first saw these designs on Carin's Blog.  I adore her photography and the way she presents her stitching and to be absolutely honest her blog sold the design to me!

Then I saw this SAL and knew it was the motivation to actually stitch them.  I wasn't intending to stitch over 1, I got out my stash of neutral 32 counts and found I had 32 count in Vintage Grain which was close enough.  The main thing I wanted to check was that Winter White would show up enough.  Then I looked at the little designs and thought "these would look cute over 1" forgetting it's 32 not 28!  Anyway, they have come out about the size of a postage stamp.  So I'm thinking of brown luggage tags and a small tree to display them on.  Here's 1, 2 and 3:

That's a one pence coin for scale.

The design calls for DMC flosses in colors below: 

The ornaments were stitched on 32 ct Zweigart Vintage Country Mocha, you'll need a fat quarter (17x24" - 50x70 cm) of it. 

Label suggestion for this design: 'Advent Calendar', feel free to use this in the future when posting.
  • The aim is to finish this SAL till 30th November 2013, no problem if you couldn't manage to stitch it until then, but after the deadline we'll starting a new one, please take it into consideration.
