Quaker SAL

Yuko and I decided to do a private SAL with Midnight Stitching's Quaker Faith Hope Love and the above photo shows the fabric and threads I decided to use for mine. The fabric is 36ct Edinburgh linen in flax and the silks are Au Ver a Soie in Creme, 1424 (blue) and 4624 (red). I made a small start on this over the weekend and will post a WIP photo shortly. 

I finished a exchange gift over the weekend too but of course I cannot show this yet so I will be putting my package together shortly so I can get it in the mail to the recipient. Suffice it to say that I like it and I really hope she does too! 

Now for those of you who complain that their husbands do not buy them flowers - look away now. Ken buys me flowers every weekend and has done so right through our marriage. These are the beautiful red roses that I received on Saturday and I could not resist taking a picture with the sunlight catching them - aren't they gorgeous?

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Looking forward to seeing your Quaker SAL with Yuko.

    What a sweet DH! I have only had flowers from my OH once, and if I remember correctly he said he was sending his Mum some so thought he'd send me some too. Charming! LOL
