Lakeside Needlecraft have been keeping quite a few stitchers busy with their stitch-alongs (SAL). They teamed up with Durene Jones to provide those in the Facebook group with a free mini SAL. Here is my start on the Tea and Cake SAL.
For the border, I decided to use one of the variegated silk threads I had in my stash. The silk is Honeysuckle by Thread Pickerz and I originally bought it to use on a blackwork piece which I still need to stitch at some point. At the moment, I’m planning to use the recommended DMC threads for the rest of the sections but maybe I can squeeze in another Thread Pickerz silk at some point. I have plenty of white aida lying around so I decided to use some of that.
