Summer Mystery SAL - Free


Donna of "By The Bay Needleart" is having a free Mystery SAL on her blog. If you scroll to her May 23, 2012 post, that's were you will find the list of supplies and info regarding her SAL.
Every Friday she posts another part. I'm just done stitching part 2 and she already posted part 3. Part 4 is this Friday. I am behind but that's fine by me. I love this SAL design the summer colors and theme. I have other projects going on, but when we have company and nurses come over, I don't want to be working on a large project (only for that time). This project is perfect for picking up and having to set it down. I can still get some stitching done.
So far I'm using the suggested colors, except I didn't have enough of DMC #159, I'm using DMC 3747. Fabric is 28ct and I think its Lambswool. Yes I'm pretty sure it is. Donna is on the East Coast and I'm sure she designed it with the bay near her in mind. Well this reminds me of Monterey California. That tree on left reminds me of a Cypress Tree. I do believe the whole design when finished will be around 4x6 to fit a 5x7 frame. Just TO SWEET! I've seen some of you have her Stitch an Inch Summer, Spring or Fall. But I haven't seen any completed. I think I was researching and that's how I found out Donna had a blog. And she had this wonderful free Mystery SAL going on. I wanted to share with you....
Okay this was just a fast post.

Annette! Hooray! You changed your commenting format around. I don't know why, but with the way you had it, I had to leave Firefox every time and go to Internet Explorer and then comment using open ID. I think it might have to do with me being a follower using open ID before I set up my own blog?! I don't know don't care. This is way easier. But I still jump through the hoops for everyone else so I can comment.
I was going to say that your SAL is very pretty. I was tempted, I just am not doing it. I have a very, very long list in front of me to do. I just can't seem to stitch as fast as others. And I want so desperately to get these things done.
I am still praying for you and your mother and sister.♥ http://astitchersstory.blogspot.com/
