BFF SAL 15 - Rebel Without a Cause

We're enjoying this little piece,  but it's definitely taking longer than I anticipated,  I think because of the bitty nature, or the spread between sections of the colours.  By that,  I mean that there's more stopping to change colours as I go along.

I even chose to do some of the backstitch as I go,  funny how that always makes me feel something of a rebel!!

BFF SAL 15 - what colour is that grey?

The excitement of starting a new project is often tempered by that initial thread sort stage, particularly with a lot of similar colours.  The pattern calls for 4 purples, and 5 greens.  And there are just 9 shades there. So... before counting all that properly...what was the grey over there?  Very light green apparently LOL!!

A small project to last just a few weeks we think, and give us time to prepare for BFF SAL 16.

BFF SAL 14 - can you believe it?

Firstly that we've been working on our 14th BFF SAL.. and secondly that it's DONE!!

We talked a lot tonight about how amazing it is that we can find so many things to stitch jointly,  most of them from the same patterns.  And how our approach is still often The Same But Different. 

Loads of backstitch completed,  and now to decide on a frame for any FFO. 

I've really enjoyed this stitch,  and will definitely do more from the same book.  And we finished just nicely as the enthusiasm was beginning to wane for me at the end of the project (which is often the case for me).

Looking forward to a small stitch next time for BFF SAL 15, before our next Project, which I remembered during the week.
