SAL ….Hi everyone!

Hello everyone and thank you for letting me join in with the sew along. I have been watching some of your progress for quite a long time now and finally decided to take the plunge and join in. I have a few projects on the go at the moment and lots of unfinished and un-started kits stashed away, but often get distracted by daily life – so thought the SAL might focus my mind a little.

But what to choose? I thought at first that I would post progress on the Wren Etui project by Jenny Adin-Christie that I have been working on – but then thought I would like to start at the beginning and see something through to the end. So I got out my kits and found a lovely goldwork project by Kate Barlow that I had bought last year and intended to complete by Christmas – it didn’t happen – so maybe I can finish it by this Christmas.


This is what is inside the box….


Now I just need to get started….. See you all next time!

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school.

I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....
