Happy St Patrick's Day

And to honor Patrick I am stitching something Green! I have finally begun Gazette 94's Mystery Stitch Along (SAL) called Grand Abecedere. I am using GAST Pine and Shutter Green. I think that the more subtle color difference is very calming. This is only part one which I just finished. There are four parts available as of today.But it is not the only SAL I am currintly working on. Below is Swiss Topiary, a Mystery SAL from last year. For come reason, I waited until I had 8/12 parts. I am stitching on parts 7 and 8 right now.And not to be omitted, is Pelin Tezer's Alla Turca. Three parts have been released so far and I have finished all three...have to wait for April 1 for the next installment.
The three pieces are rotated by where I am and the date....on the first of the month I pick up Alla Turca, when on the road, Swiss Topiary is the order of the day, and when home, like now, I will work on Grand Abecedere until I catch up.
Back to stitching!

Edy your WIPs are gorgeous! Aren't online SALs so much fun? I am stitching two at the moment, but I have all three of these printed out and want to stitch them. Beautiful greens on the Grand Abc. . .

The swiss topiary looks fascinating. I am amzed at the way monchrome looks. Never thought a single colour could look so beautiful.

I love your Swiss Topiary, I have been thinking of doing that pattern too, and having seen yours I am going to have to do it.

Beautiful stitching.
