The Green Santa, some fabric and a new SAL

This week progress on the Green Santa has been so much better than the last time he was on the rotation.

The Green Santa
I think this one isn't going to take as long as the others as his coat is short and not the trailing on the floor variety the others are wearing.

A few weeks ago I was sent some samples of fabric by a company called Dovestitch. They specialise in hand dyed fabric, Aida, evenweave, linen in a number of different counts. You can also ask for a number of different finishes, for example, opalescent. Further enquiries revealed that these fabrics are also colourfast.

This is a picture of the sample I was sent.

This week I came across a new SAL. Called My Little Heart it can be found on Sylvia's blog. The link to the post with the charts is here. I have made a small start, not really enough to show. This weekend it is back to the Timeless Elegance ornaments and, as Mary Wigham Sundays are no more, it's time to get my last UFO out of the Stash Room where it has been festering for about eighteen months!

I've seen that SAL as well. I downloaded the patterns, but am choosing to stitch it on my own (of course giving her the credit for the design whenever I do start it).

Your new fabric samples are gorgeous!

You have made great progress with your Santa. Fabrics look interesting. We do not have many hand dyed fabris available in the UK so the website is worth a look.
