Stitching Saturday: Fox and Rabbit MSAL March Pt.2

It’s taking me a while to do this whole MSAL so far because it’s so big. I’m watching Flosstube while I stitch, and I have to laugh when I hear creatives referring to pieces that are less than 200 stitches wide and tall as “big”. This MSAL has an outer frame that is over 300 stitches long and just as many wide. I just shake my head and keep on working. Here is my progress so far:

I can see a light at the end of the tunnel now, so I should have this part finished by my next post.

I am curious to see what will be done with the big spaces between the flowers and the squares. I wouldn’t mind seeing some beading or embroidery stitches added, but I’m not the designer. I just have to be more patient and wait to see what comes up. 🙂

If you’re stitching this along with Anita(my(mis?)adventureswithyarn) and myself, feel free to share pictures, comments, suggestions or whatever else you might like.

If you’re not stitching this along with us, feel free to still share pictures of stitching projects, comment, suggest or whatever else you might like. I enjoy reading all comments and seeing what others are working on!

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

  1. If you do have some beading or embroidery in mind that you would like to use in a future section of this project, I say go for it! I’ve fallen behind on my stitching again, but I’m hoping I’ll catch up as the month ends.


  2. Both sound like they’d be good additions actually! In the group on Facebook I’m only seeing floss being used so far. I’m not the only one using metallic thread, but most are using gradients. I’m not ready to do that much with them.

    I really can’t wait to see what April brings so I can maybe work some embroidery into it 🙂

    You’ve got some great ideas, and I’m eager to see what you’re doing on your piece!

  3. Your SAL is beautiful with all of those colors. I recently received fabric for mine. I ended up buying a yard of fabric, so I am hoping to get it cut down and surged this weekend so I can get started on this SAL. The designs in this one look like they will be good to add beads on so I am hoping to add some beads to mine. Since I use a scroll frame, the beading will have to wait until the end, but I will be making notes as I go.


  4. I am doing beading at the end myself but just because I want to map out where they’re going to go before I actually do them.

    The next four sections are season specific, and I’ve joined several others from the Sal’s FB group in using a set of three colors for each one from DMC. Spring is first, and the colors will be 972,744 and 3841. I’m adding 699 for the stems and leaves.

    I’ve seen some of your own work, and I can’t wait to see what you do with this SAL.

    In addition to the cross stitching and beading, I’m thinking of doing a little bit of embroidery. The little leaves look like they could use some satin stitches. 🙂
