The start of a new project


There is nothing like the feeling of starting a new project -threading the needle and placing that first stitch. Tonight Danielle and I started our Angel of Tulips SAL. The chart is by The Goode Huswife, one of my most favorite designers. I've had this chart kitted up for a while and when I saw that Danielle had it too, I suggested an SAL. This is my progress at about 45 minutes. I'm doing it over one on some mystery fabric from my stash. It's an even weave in an off white color. I'm using the NPI silks the chart calls for - I LOVE working with NPI silks. I took a close up view as well.

As is typical of an over one project for me, I had to force myself to stop because I'm in the middle of a really good mystery and want to continue with my reading. I don't think this will take us long to stitch - maybe a finish for us both by the weekend? Stay tuned!

Oh I love it! Great progress for it being an "over one" design. I'm working on one from M Designs now and it seems sooo slow going.

You are the queen of over 1! This is going to be so cool when you finish it. Keep posting pictures cause you are wearing my resolve down to start one of these teeny-weenie designs. (You enabler...heehee)!

You are going to zip along with this one! I am working from the bottom up. I worked on it for about 20 minutes this morning. I am juggling it with my redwork that needs to be mailed on Tuesday, so I am not sure I will complete mine by the weekend. I am enjoying stitching on it, though!
