Get Set, Ready, SAL!

9 April marks the start of our 6 Fat Man SAL. Unfortunately, it was that time of the month and I had a roaring migraine the whole of that day. So, I started mine a day late. Thankfully, I'm feeling much better now.
I finished the bird house that was included with the border instructions in the middle of the design. Aren't the birds adorable?
I'm loving my HDF conversion so far and PTP's Tarnish Belfast is a joy to stitch on. I can't wait till next Monday. I'm having a ball with this design.
I'll be dropping by to see everyone's progress.
Happy Stitching!

What a beautiful SAL Veronica, I just love birds and bird house's. Look forward to see the next one, hugs.
Hope your Migraine is better I had it for about 10 years, had to cut out cheese and chocolate (10yrs) but I am ok now and can eat both of them.

Super cute start!! :)

Margit said...

Now I see that you use your own conversation. It looks sooo much nicer than the original colors. Very good decision!!! I guess I will change my colors also and hopefully mine turns out half as pretty as yours. ☺
