Freedom SAL  Borders stitched
Freedom SAL Borders stitched

The very talented Banu of Seba Designs has released the start to her new blackwork SAL, Freedom, and everyone is welcome to join and stitch along.

We are stitching all of the borders first, and then each week we’ll be given designs to fill the boxes. We can use whichever designs we choose, and place them as we like. Should be lots of fun!

My outline is stitched in variegated gray and blue, but I’m dithering on the rest of the colours, so the ones shown here will probably change at least six more times. I have an order coming in soon, and there’s silk floss… need I say more?!

Although the designer has explained that there will be specialty stitches and recommends stitching on evenweave fabric, I am stitching on aida. This is a very loosely woven fabric though – it starts to fringe itself the moment you pick it up – and I’m hopeful that it will be fine.

I’ll let you know how that turns out!
