On your mark, get set, SAL!

Just a quickie post today.  Monday's SAL of Lizzie Kate's 6 Fat Men started last night.  I had started it out on Violet Mist, but I didn't think that the white popped out as much as I wanted it too.  Colonial Blue was my second choice, so I frogged and started it again. I love it on this fabric. Don't you love that "O"?

It's going to be a fun stitch!  Don't know how fast my progress is going to be on it though, cause Monday's I don't have a lot of stitching time.  About an hour, sometimes two...I'm usually tired on Monday's cause it's such a busy day at work.  But I'll plug along.

Great start! Too bad about the violet mist, but your second choice fabric is very pretty too! Colonial blue us such a nice blue!

So pretty!!! Yours looks soooooo much better than mine!! It is my first time on such a small count fabric, and I didn't get an evenweave, so that is making it even harder!! I haven't pulled it back out since my first attempt!! So what are the rules on the SAL? Care if I join?

You got farther than I did. I do love your fabric color also. Mine is pretty close to the same color. I was going to use the first piece I bought but it was so tighly woven (it was a really nice piece of fabric) that I couldn't ssee the holes to stitch into. It was 28 count Monaco.

You've done a great job in such a short time. It will be fun seeing how everyone gets on with it each week. It's already interesting to see where everyone is starting from.

Great new start, Barbi! I love the blue fabric.

Lovely start, Barbi. Oh yes, that O is just perfect ^.^ Too bad about Violet Mist but I think your second choice is a wonderful one.

Hugs,
Veronica.

I love the fabric colour, it's gorgeous! I couldn't start mine as I'm waiting for fabric to arrive. Lovely progress.

I'll look forward to your progress on this one. I've already stitched it and I never thought of doing it on blue material. I'm sure it will look much different than mine.
