Busy stitching!

Hello all, hope all are doing well and are enjoying what you are working on. Wanted to post a few pics and inform you of an SAL offered by By the Bay Needlearts. I purchased the floss today but have two options of fabric. See below for pics. This is my first every SAL so amlooking forward to it.

The top pic is of the floss for the SAL on Forget Me Not Blue Aida.

The top pic is of the same floss on Confederate Gray linen...which is the one I am going with...I think!

The one on the right is my latest finish. I had started this one last year and have just finished it. I substituted with HDF, which turned out to be too dark and muted.

The one on the left is Jardin Prive, "Halloween d'Quaker." I added the orange and purple for some color. I should finish this one this week.

Anyway, that's it for me!

Happy stitching, everyone!

Hugs Christina
