SAL 49: Making a start…

Hi everyone, another 3 weeks has flown by and the summer holidays are here! So, I have finally made a start on my little ballerina mouse embroidery, designed by Jenny McWhinney.

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.
