SAL 46: Sew close…..

Another three weeks has shot past and I have managed to get all the elements of my little mossy bank, for my blue wren to sit on, finished – but not mounted.

Happy stitching.

We are a small group of crafters using a variety of different techniques. Please check out the fabulous stitching by all the other members of the SAL. If you are interested in joining us you can contact Avis for details.
