A Brand New SAL

I was totally a bad girl (because it means a new start) and joined the Bothy Cut-Thru SAL that's hosted by Linda and Debbie (click on their names for the SAL pages).

I always liked these - the whole series is super cute! - but I resisted.  When I saw them being stitched up though - my feeble, fragile self-control snapped.  I got me a kit and away I go!

I chose the Cut-Thru Princess Palace - this one:

And here's my wee tiny start - a throne!

And really, part of another throne - that bit of lonely brown at the top is the toilet seat, lol!  I started in the middle, instead of the top left, because... I'm not sure why.  To make a change?  I think I'll work my way up first - I want to stitch that gigantic frog in the bathroom.

I will be working on this on Mondays only, so it may take me a while - so absolutely no different than my other projects!  Once I finish this one up, I want to start the Lighthouse.  It's my favorite, but when I was looking for one to start, I couldn't find a place to buy it at a price I could justify spending my stash money on.  I found the chart really cheap on eBay last week, though, thanks to Linda's sharp eyes!  But it's on its way from Belgium, so who knows when I will actually get it?

I'll have a crochet update soon - and something really, really, REALLY cute to go with it!


  1. I love that chart. Can't wait to watch it progress:)

  2. What a great chart. Looking forward to your progress.

  3. Oh what a cute one, there are so many nice cut thru kits aren't they. I am mid way through the lighthouse, having done the camper in the past but in a fit of yellow at the minute doing the light rays! ! ! !

    Great progress, look forward to seeing more next week.

  4. What a cute project! I love it!

  5. That is so colourful it's going to be a lot of fun

  6. What a fantastic start, Tama! That's a great throne and I can't wait to see the frog!

    I added your pic to the SAL page:

  7. What a great start Tama. I love all these designs so much that its hard to pick a favorite. The throne looks great. I also added your pic to our SAL page.


  8. LOL!! Gives a whole new meaning to "Game of Thrones". I love this one if I had to choose a BOthy cut thru I would pick it too. But then again what else would a Crafty Princess choose?

    Great start, it's nice to start amongst the thick of it sometimes.
