Woodland Sal

Update on Woodland Sal – Otters are ready. They are so cute, aren’t they? Can’t wait to stitch the next part. But the main rule of each Sal is that you get each part separately, once a month, and you don’t know what will happen next. You can only guess – whether it’s going to be a fox or a wolf, or maybe… well, what animal will be next?

I’ve completed this stitching at last! It was 2019 year Sal arranged by Lakesideneedlecraft by Lucie Heaton pattern. It was a real adventure, especially backstitch, which made me crazy sometimes, but each cross and french knot, and even couching were worth it! If you ask me, which part is my favourite, I don’t know the answer. Each part became a favourite as it was finished. Well, maybe a big Wave, or a Crane, or maybe a Carp, and so on, and so on…there is no answer! It was an excellent pattern, thank you, Lucie!

Stitched on Murano Pearl Evenweave 32 count, DMC thread. Techniques used: whole cross stitch, french knots, backstitch, couching.

Not so long ago I started one more Sal, although I promised myself that I would not start any new work until I had finished all the work I had started. But how could I help myself when Kate Worthington announced she was organizing a new Woodland Sal by  Durene Jones pattern? And so, I can show you two parts of this Sal anyway: an Owl and a Rare.

The thread I used is DMC as always but the fabric was speciał created for this Sal.  I use evenweave 32 count.

Update on this beautiful Sal by Lucie┬áHeaton┬ápattern. Now I’ve got seven parts made, today I started on the 8th. In the previous, 7 part, we stitched a beautiful sea wave according to the famous Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter, and printmaker of the Edo period Katsushika Hokusai. The artist┬áis best known as the author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount┬áFuji which┬áincludes the internationally iconic print,┬áThe Great Wave off Kanagawa Lucie’s interpretation looks like this:
