Stitching: New SALs Part 1

I have two pieces that are in their infancy to share with you. 

The first is a new SAL that I'm so excited to share. It's by the same gal that did the Dragons SAL last year (that I really should finish, instead of starting new things, lol). These are gargoyles, chimeras, whatever you want to call them, modelled off the actually Stone work at the Notre Dame Cathedral. I'm working it on a 28ct fabric that was hand-dyed by a fellow Canadian. Really loving it even if it's weird to stitch on a larger count than usual. 

The second is a start shared earlier this year, the Lakeside SAL Bands of a Sampler. Done up with DMC variegated threads. I'm really impressed with how nice the DMC variegated is and definitely excited to move to the next part. 

We've been quite busy lately so stitching time has been a little scarce. But it's supposed to snow big time tonight so I'm crossing my fingers for a snow day. Lol! 
Too bad my city doesn't seem to ever have snow days. Us darn hardy Canadians and our perserverance. :) 

Happy stitching!

Love the gargoyles and the linen! Where did you get the linen? I am in Michigan which is almost Canada, so I tend to support Canadian artisans. Next to go check out the second SAL!

Both of your stitches are super, Mel. I really like the effect of the DMC variegated thread you are using.

Oh cool! I'll have to check that one out, it looks very interesting with the gargoyles. I love how that thread stitched up as well. I have a project set aside for that same thread colour, awesome!

These both look great - the gargoyle is extremely cool, and I really like the look of the variegated DMC.

I love the gargoyle SAL. The dragons were very cute, but somehow I didn't really feel drawn to them - this, I might have to cave in and buy eventually.

Oh my, that gargoyle is absolutely gorgeous!
