SAL Updates

Last night I stayed up late (2:30am) to finish up Afternoon in Paris by Country Cottage Needleworks. A couple of weeks ago I had decided to make it into a pillow so I went online to find an appropriate fabric to use with it.

I found this on Esty (I actually ended up ordering it from a Canadian online fabric store - cheaper shipping.) The fabrics are part of Robert Kaufman's City Chic 2 collection by Anne Tavoletti.

(It doesn't show properly in the photos but the background is actually white.)

This morning I put this together.

I am rather pleased with the results.   I have now completed Day Twenty-Nine of the DUCJFC2016 and the Walk in the City with My Lady SAL. 

I will be working on the following in March for my other SALs.
