A new start & Papillon SAL Part 1 finished!

As promised here is the new start I was talking about last week, it's a Rubber Ducky for my friend's bathroom.
Here is a picture of the pattern (sorry it's kinda brutal to see).


And here is my start on it. I am not going to stitch all the light blue water as in the pattern, but instead have chosen a 28ct linen Weeks Dye Works to stitch just the duck on.


I also had an exciting accomplishment last night and finished the first part of the Papillon SAL! I am excited about this as I frogged alot on this piece and am still not sure about my counting. But there it is... and I will try to start Part 2 soon. I fear I will fall behind on this SAL for sure because of my commitments to other projects but as its not another person (and most of my others are) I think I will just have to live with it.
Here's my picture of it:


Coming up tomorrow: I have joined a stitching blog about UFO's and will post what I am going to try and finish because of it.

Makes sense not to have to stitch all that blue and that material is really lovely! Love the SAL, I may be talked into it yet.....

Mel said...

Nancy - you should join us! It is a pretty SAL so far and I'm sure it will be lovely... and I mean come on, you have time to give up two years for it right? lol. :)

I like your material so much better for your Duck picture than I do on the Original one.. I love that color of Blue. That is going to be so pretty when you get it done.

Your Papillion project is just beautiful. I love the colors in that one too.

Beautiful Progress on both...keep it up.

Take care & Happy Stitching
