SAL update

Here we are again! Time is flying. Since the last update I have made good progress with the SAL – the black cross-stitch diamonds with a touch of colour. These Connie Gee designs are really pretty and she already started a mini SAL again, but at this stage I want to finish all my projects, instead of starting with another new one

This is where I was with the previous update:

And this is where I am now:

cross stitch

I am considering adding a fabric border (quite wide) and backing so that I can use it on my lounge coffee table. As it is it is just too small. And I do like the black with a little bit of colour. If I use fabric I will try to find blue-ish fabric, to go with the blue wall in my lounge. Might make a couple of cushions too (and here I go again, just when I decided NO MORE new projects!!!!!!). But I don’t feel very attached to this piece yet, not sure whether I want to keep it – I liked it until I saw the updated photo and now I’m not sure. It looks better in real life 🙂

Please hop over to the other SAL members – there are very pretty needlework happening on their blogs:
