Thanks to my little stash sale, I have been indulging in the other joy of stitching: planning and stashing for future projects! I have the majority of my projects for next year planned out and I'm very excited about them, some of them I have wanted to stitch for years so I am looking forward to 2017!
On to the matter at hand - Solo September! This is a SAL being officially hosted by Justine and you can join in the fun here. The idea being that you stitch on one project for the entire month, or until you finish it then you may start another but only stitch on that one! I was quite successful in April and July with this idea so figured it couldn't hurt for September. Now I could have chosen one of the samplers above to stitch on for September, however I felt a new start was necessary to get me stitching again after such a drought this month. So here are my materials for my new start tomorrow:
Looks quite autumnal doesn't it! The design is by an Italian designer and is based on a classic English children's book, I think the (Disney) thread colours of the main character laid on top in the picture above give it away.......... any guesses?
I'll put you out of your misery, this is what I will be stitching for Solo September, one of four new starts that I hope to squeeze in before the end of the year:
|Alice in Wonderland by The Little Stitcher|
I'll be stitching Alice on 40ct Vintage Country Mocha linen with a selection of Nina's lovelies, silks and cottons probably knowing me :).
I look forward to seeing what everyone else will be stitching in September!
