7th April "F" Post
"Faces of Joan Elliott Mystery SAL"
Welcome to 7th April and posting Day 6 of the "Blogging from A to Z April 2015 Challenge". I am back at work today after a wonderful 4 days off.... during the time off I managed to get quite a bit of stitching done so I am feeling pretty pleased with myself!
Day 6 is "F" day....
"F" - "Faces of Joan Elliott Mystery SAL"
Mystery: Anything that is kept secret or remains unexplained or unknown
SAL: Stitch A Long refers to a group of stitchers all stitching on the same design
I love SAL's - which you may have realised considering the number that I have listed on my side bar!! Mystery SAL's are something that I don't join in with very often... even though I do love a good mystery.... I am not always sure that I will like the final design so I generally prefer to wait to see how things start to appear before joining.
But having said that... there are certain designers that I know I will love whatever they design no matter what, so I just jump right in.... this Mystery SAL is the perfect example of me doing just!
With this SAL each month or so a new face is released to fill in the boxes that we have already stitched. Of course I am languishing way behind again... there is one final face to be released and I am still stitching on the first face!
This is what my first face looked like the last time you saw her in February:
During a "Battlestar Galactica" Series 2 marathon on Sunday afternoon I managed to get some stitching done on her right wing. Monday saw me do a number of hours on her face as I was determined to finish this one before the long weekend was over.... but sadly I didn't quite make that final hurdle! Oh well... there will always be another stitching weekend somewhere in the near future!
So here she is today - almost ready for her bling to be added!
The next time I show you an update on this one, our lovely angel will be all blinged up and hopefully Block #2 will be almost done as well - but no promises as the "over 1" stitching that I foolishly decided to do for her skin is taking so loonngg.......
So that's it for today's "F" post... tomorrow is "G" Day and there can only be one "G" - Grumpy Cat!
Til next time.... Happy Stitching and Happy Blogging!
