New SAL: An Emblem of Love

Tonight was the start of a new Monday night SAL. This time it is An Emblem of Love by Ellen Chester of With My Needle. I am stitching this along with Karen. Carissa quit blogging and then dropped out of our SAL... :-( I really had a lot of fun starting this one tonight. It is so tiny and so delicate. I am stitching it on Lakeside Linens 40 ct Vintage Bittersweet using the DMC, Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Olde Willow Stitching floss as charted. I can't wait to see Karen's! I also can't wait until next Monday so I can work on this again. I know I will miss this one before then :-)

I just have to show my pretty new TOTM from Mindy of Sugar Maple Fabrics. This just arrived today, and it is Sun Dappled Glade belfast linen. I just adore this - I cannot wait to stitch something on it. What glorious colors! Thanks Mindy

Now, I have been getting quite a few emails about the email subscription service on my blog not working. Yes, it is true, it is not working. I visited Bloglet and my site shows as enabled, but the emails are not going through. I know the person who administrates that site was talking about quitting at some point. The hobby was becoming too much of a job. I think that is what has happened now. He probably quit, so I cannot guarantee that you will get any more emails in the future. Please bookmark me, though, and stick around! I would hate to lose you!
Daylily: Bandit Man (well... this may be Holiday Delight. Mike took the photos, so I don't know for sure where this one was taken. It looks a little too deep orange to be Bandit Man... just not sure, but it is one or the other)

Oooh, that's going to be lovely :)

I've lost track of which SALs you're doing and when by the way!

Von said...

Wow, Carol! You always have so many projects going. :)

Do you keep a calendar to schedule your projects on. And then you're so good to keep on top of them! Amazing. :D

KarenV said...

You made a great start Carol! It's looking lovely :)

I really enjoyed stitching this one yesterday and wanted to keep going with it LOL. It's so delicate and I love the colours. Will share a pic later.

An Emblem of Love looks so pretty. Very delicate. The fabric is pretty that Mindy sent.

Barbara said...

Your new SAL is off to a beautiful start!

And "Bandit Man" is such a terrific name for a flower - I love it! ;>

Kiwi Jo said...

sooo pretty! Bittersweet is one of my favourite fabbies!

Michelle said...

What a great start and a beautiful piece. Your fabric you received is gorgeous too - can't wait to see what you stitch on it!

Jenna said...

I love Vintage Bittersweet! It's just such a lovely, delicate color. I'm sorry that Carissa dropped out of your SAL. I would hazard a guess that she has some serious things going on in her life to force her to quit blogging and potentially even stitching. Poor gal!

Great start on the SAL, though!

Hi Carol, that fabric is gorgeous!
I left off using Bloglet several months ago... It simply wasn't working anymore. I'm using Feedblitz now (especially for my French blog, as quite a few French people don't use newsfeed readers...). It's been very reliable so far.
Enjoy your day! :)

Your new SAL looks great, I shall enjoy watching that one grow. :)
Take care.

Kath said...

Another SAL... very pretty.

Ahh, I did wonder why I was not getting your updates by email. Have had a shortcut on my desktop for awhile though so check up on you anyway!!

The Teahouse piese for the RR is lovely too....

Love that sugar maple fabric, so pretty. That is too bad Carissa isn't blogging or doing the SAL. Is everything okay with her? Ann.

Katrina said...

ooh another great start- look forward to seeing more of this one Carol. Lovely fabbie too :)

I live a 10 min. drive away from Mindy's house. Two years ago we visited her. What fun! What an impressive amount of stash she has acquired in a very short time. The fabric looks wonderful.

Great start. It looks like a very pretty piece. I also love the TOTM you got from Sugar Maple. It has a lovely mottling to it.

Stitch Wizard said...

Your Emblem of Love looks just beautiful! I am glad that you are using multi colors instead of just one color of blue. I will enjoy watching your progress!! Really pretty!!

Carol, that's a lovely start. When you stitch over 2 on 40 ct do you still use two strands of floss or one?

I really like that fabbie you got from Mindy!
