I have mentioned before that I was doing a SAL of Jacek Yerka's Autumn (found here). I am stitching this one along with Spices up your Life!. I am starting on page 1 of this design and it the largest pattern I have ever attempted. The total stitch count on this is 349,375 so it may take me a while. This SAL is going to updated once a month on the 15th and I will be making a tab at the top to detail our progress. We would love for anyone who is interested to join in with us. Just drop either of us a mail. There are no goals for this just stitch whatever we can each month and share our progress.
So here is my preparation photo:
For any colours where more than one skein was required I purchased them all together for all other colours I just used what was in my stash. This is page 1 gridded. I am stitching this on 28ct Jobelan evenweave 2 over 1 tent stitch.
I have managed to make a start on this, not a huge start but something:
HAED - Autumn
This is the first 2,500 stitches on page 1, only 346,875 stitches to go :D Unfortunately it doesn't look like much yet just a grey brown blob but if you look closely you can see the start of trees.
