Just thought I'd drop in really quickly and do an update on my attempt at SAL #4 "Puppy Love".
I had intended to finish these little cuties before the end of 2013... but time and tide wait for no man and certainly not for me! Even though I was stitching right up to midnight on 31st December 2013, I didn't actually put the final back stitch in until a couple of days later.
May I present Margaret Sherry's "Puppy Love"
I really did enjoy stitching these gorgeous puppies and I am a little bit sad to have finished them... but while they may be packed away safe and sound at the moment, I will bring them out in a couple of weeks to do the final finish on them. Still trying to work out what to do but I suspect they will be made into a hanging for either the craft room or one of the spare rooms.
You may notice that I didn't do all the french knots on the lettering. While I don't mind french knots normally, trying to do them on the lettering was driving me spare... so I decided that life was short enough without stressing over french knots! In the end I have only stitched them for the punctuation - I don't think they are missed as the design looks just as nice without them!
I am looking forward to starting the next SAL especially the Spring Bouquet kitty. Hopefully the lovely Margaret Sherry will have some more gorgeous designs out this year in our favourite mags that we can drool over and stitch.
See you again real soon when I come back to show you all the "making up" that I have been doing on my other SAL's that we have stitched over the last few years.
