January SAL with Helene – part 2

Here it is! the final steps of the January SAL from Helene-Et-Mahalia. Of course, it’s still missing the back stitches, which actually makes quite a big difference!

Can you guess what it is? (or who it is I should say!)

I will post the back stitches in a little while, once I’ve started making some squares for my  2016 quilt, including all of Helene’s designs for this year! If you want to join, it’s easy, just pop on Helene-Et-Mahalia.com and contact Helene, fees are 10€ for the whole year 🙂

S’more cross stitch

I might have slightly missed Friday’s post 😁 I got very excited because I finished all my Christmas cards and all my bookmarks and I forgot to post before going to bed. 

Oh well! 

So here is my “petit prince” finished 😊 I’m sure my mum will love it, this book is one of her all time favourites and it’s not hard to understand why!

 
From now on I will also be following the lovely Hélène’s mystery SALs. 

I’ve already started the Christmas one, and I was a bit late so I’m allowed to post the first step already.   

From next year onwards, a small fee will be asked to join the SAL (10€ for 24 grids) but if you ask me it’s well worth it. Hélène’s designs are just amazing. The theme for next year is stained glass windows and I can’t wait! 

This weekend will be very busy, it’s my other half’s birthday on Monday and we have a weekend of fun planned (another birthday party tonight, restaurant and games day tomorrow). I doubt I’ll get too much craft done but hopefully I’ll have some party pics to show you on Monday!

Have a great weekend 

😘

Emma
