Fantasy Sal

As promised, I’d like to present you all completed annual Fantasy Sal. It was my first Sal ever, organized by https://www.lakesideneedlecraft.co.uk/ by Durene Jones Pattern https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DureneJones

This Sal was the first and on the Lakeside Needlecraft site, there was an amazing atmosphere in this group, everyone was enjoying the success of the others. We were getting a part of this Sal once a month and immediately started guessing what the next part would be. We had so much fun stitching the mystical creatures that were designed by Durene Jones. I think I didn’t finish the job for so long because I didn’t want to forget the atmosphere that we had throughout the year. But I was wrong, it’s impossible to forget it and every time I look at this stitching, I smile and remember those wonderful times.

And now – separate characters by month: January Unicorn, February March Phoenix, April Gnomes, May Dragon, June Elf, July Fairy, August Pegasus, September Wizard, October Witch, November Goblin, and December Winter Fairy.

Finally some more fragments from this Sal:

Garden Sal

After finishing this great Garden Sal by Durene Jones design, I was looking for a suitable square frame for a long time and could not find it. Since I really wanted to have this stitching on my desktop in front of me, I decided to frame it i a hoop until I could find a suitable frame for it. What do you think about this way of finishing cross stitch projects?
