Since I posted last night, several people have asked if we can do a Mystery SAL here in the community. I would be happy to run it if we can have one.
I don't want to start one without permission from bekscilla
So can we?Here is an explenation on how it would work.
Well.... Did you all see the picture of the MSAL that I posted last night?
Lets say that the pattern is 100 x 100 stitches. Then you would grid a fabric big enough for the design with either a water erasable pen or thread to 10x10 stitches squares.
I will tell you before we start what fabric colors I think would look good with the design and give the floss numbers so everyone can be ready.
You have to have Pattern Maker Viewer set up on your computer (free to download at www.hobbyware.com) as I send out the patterns as PM files. They do not open with PC Stitch or any other cross stitch software.
I send out one color a week on say, wednesdays, and you stitch that color/part of the design, on the fabric, corresponding to the grid lines. It is almost like a puzzle.This is week 4 as it looks like on Pattern Maker Viewer:And here you can see it stitched, along with weeks 1-3:
That is how it goes until all the parts have been sent out and stitched. And you can all guess what design you are stitching.EDITED WITH PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
