    February Friday - Monday SAL

    Good morning everyone! Oops, I'm a day late announcing our current SAL, and I also see that I put our last one in January rather than starting a February thread. All straightened out now! This week's SAL will be for GK charts and I'll be continuing on with David. Will anybody be joining in?

    I will hopefully be joining in with Potions around chicken sitting for a coworker and also snowblowing his super long driveway and getting out a truck stuck in the middle of it.

    If you can do all of that, Tamara, you must be totally recovered from your cold!

    Here is my progress on David. I've always tried to take close-up photos so just the fabric was showing, but they aren't good at all, so I've also taken one from a distance and think it is much better - the colours are more true. I managed to cover those incorrect stitches rather than trying to take them out.

    Good morning everybody (anybody?)! This week is our SAL for both GK and non-GK charts and I'll be continuing on with David. I do hope that someone else will be joining me. Any interest?

    I am in this weekend. Probably a bit of Magic Potion and a bit of my Harry Potter stitch-a-long too.

    Wendy David looks fantastic. Thank you for that photo from farther out to show us. It sure helps to step back to see what the finished project might become.

    Sorry I am a bit late with my photos from last time. I was out in the bush the past couple of days learning yet another new thing. This page is coming along nicely for me. Only on my fourth colour so far and the one had about 10 stitches.

    Thank you Tamara! I'm going to continue to take the photos from a distance, now that I can see the difference.

    Beautiful progress on your Potion! You must be getting big runs of the same colour if you've only stitched four colours so far. This page should stitch up quickly if it is all like this section! I'm glad that you'll be joining in this week - our numbers have dropped drastically. what with home renovations, house guests and earlier working hours that some of our ladies have. Hopefully things will soon be back to normal.

    Here's my progress on David. I'm liking the photo quality much better when taken from a distance, but I'm still playing around with it. Hopefully it will soon be perfected!

    Wendy your David is coming along nicely. Love the shoulder and how you can see how smooth the stone is. The photos up close show how nice the stitches are, but out farther you can see the whole picture and how it works together.

    I got a bit done on Magic Potion in between watching some of the olympics. Of course I just have the closer up photos of my one page until it gets done. Then I will do another overview.

    Thank you Tamara!

    Oohh, your page on Potion is filling in rapidly! I'm loving the contrasts between the three major colours, and eagerly awaiting the page finish so that we can see the whole piece again!
