|Stitched on 40-count Vintage Autumn Gold with Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe threads|
This photo is the closest to the actual fabric color of any of my previous photos. Now that I have the cards and all the other paper-crafting items for Christmas finished, I should be able to sit down and work on this. I am aiming for a finish in the next couple of weeks. Heather has said she is going to continue the SAL for 2017 and will have sign-up information sometime around the 5th of December. I have a bunch of smalls lined up for next year, so I was very happy to read that she will be continuing the SAL.
The next SAL is . TUSAL is hosted by It's Daffycat. It doesn't help you finish anything or stitch a piece, or work through a problem, but it does give you a SAL that is super easy to participate in and if you stitch, quilt, sew or do anything that requires trimming, you have all the materials you need. Save all those little bits of thread that you would normally
Most people are a bit more artistic with their photos, but I'm just so thrilled to be almost on time with my post that I took a picture in my jar's natural setting.
And one last picture. We had a weather front roll through a week or so ago and it got very cloudy and dark; however, there was a brief moment when the sun poked through the clouds and I snapped this:
We live in a bit of a gully, so the setting sun only hit the tops of the trees, but against the dark cloud backdrop they glowed. No filters or retouching - just right place at the right time. I did about break my leg tripping over the cats trying to get outside to take the picture, but I am so glad I did as just a few minutes later and the clouds closed up and it was dark again.
