APRIL YOTA SAL UPDATE - Bothy Threads Cut Thru SAL



I joined another SAL last month.  It is YOTA (year of the acronym).  You pick one UFO and work on it during the month and post a before and after picture on the first Saturday of the month.  You can read all about it HERE.

The Library by Little House Needleworks


Only worked a couple hours on it one day.  I did the two green bushy things on the lower left.


Sharon and I decided to do a Monday Bothy Thread Cut-Thru SAL.  Debbie very excitedly joined us.  Debbie and I posted about it on our blogs and we now have 8 SALongers doing 7 different cut thru's.  They look kinda scary, but their not.  All full stitches, backstitches and a few french knots.
Please look at the Bothy Threads Cut Thru Monday SAL page at the top of my blog.  (copied from Debbie)
There are pictures of what each person will be stitching and links to their blogs.  There are also links to shops where you can get the kits or just the charts.  Several gals don't have their kits yet.
PLEASE come and join us.  The choices are endless.

I'll leave you with a pic of Mocha and Midnight.


Thanks for looking.     Linda

Love the library piece - I am enjoying watching this grow. Give Mocha and Midnight a hug for me. I may "steal" your Cut through invite once my pattern arrives and I get started.
hugs, Kaye
