Easter SAL Finished!


I received the final part of the Easter SAL late yesterday afternoon. So....after finishing up our supper & dishes, I sat down to stitch. I had a goal in mind! Finish the final part of the SAL & also finish the book I was reading. I was able to accomplish both!!!
I stitched my SAL on a piece of 14 ct. aida, that I hand dyed myself. It is a much prettier green than the pictures show. I am very happy with the finish. This is my 21st finish for the year.
Earlier in the week, I stitched two different scissor fobs. I cannot show pictures yet, because it is for an exchange. I was not happy with the first one, so I stitched another one...it is better. I am going to send both to my exchange partner. If she wants to throw the first one away, I won't care, but I thought I would let her make the decision.
I was kind of in a stitching slump this week....don't know for sure why! I think part of it was that I pulled out a WIP of an airplane I am doing for my husband & I just can't get into it.....
Now, I am stitching something for my dad....we shall see how it works...
Have a great week & thanks for stopping by!!!!

Very cute finish!

Congratulations on your finish, Shari--the Easter SAL is very pretty. Love those little chicks :)

I don't think I could get in to stitching an airplane piece either. At this time of year, I really need bright, springy colors to stitch with.

I love the way your Easter SAL turned out. I was going to do it, but I knew I couldn't get it done, so I didn't try.

Seeing yours makes me wish I had put out the effort!

Love the Easter SAL - I don't think I've ever done any Easter stitching, just a couple of cards last year.
