Papillon SAL and update Lulu la belle

First things first. Here's my update on Lulu la Belle which I'm working on in a SAL. You can find everything about it at Inès 
It's so nice to work on, but I had to frog everything out last week as I worked with two threads and the fabric is too small. I started again with one thread and it's much more beautiful this way.

This week I got my threads from Nina I had ordered a few more so I could choose when I got them. I did make a choice based on the pictures Nina sent of the colors, but wasn't sure about one or two colors. So now I'm all ready to start working on all these specialty stitches, which I'm going to do this evening and tomorrow. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Hugs

Het belangrijkste eerst. Hier zijn de vorderingen met Lula la Belle, een SAL waaraan ik deelneem. Je kan alles erover vinden bij Inès 
Het is heel leuk om aan te werken, maar ik moest vorige week alles uithalen. Ik werkte namelijk met twee draden en de stof was veel te fijn. Opnieuw begonnen dus met één draad en het is zo veel mooier.

Ik heb deze week ook mijn garen van Nina gekregen. I had er wat meer besteld om te kunnen kiezen als ze aankwamen. Ik had namelijk gekozen op basis van de foto's die Nina gestuurd had van de kleuren tesamen, maar ik was niet zeker van één of twee kleuren. Dus nu ben ik helemaal klaar om al die speciale steekjes te borduren, en daar begin ik vanavond mee en morgen doe ik voort. Ik wens jullie allemaal een schitterend weekend! Knuffel
This is Lulu la Belle. It's sometimes challenging to work on this fine fabric, but she will be so lovely. We agreed to work only on wednesdays on her and she has to be ready in september..
These are the hand dyed threads I choose. I loved all the colors but wanted to make a further selection.
This is a gift Nina added and I know exactly what to do with the little bobbin. Thank you ever so much Nina, I was really happy with these threads and the bobbin!
These are the colors and the fabric I finally choose for my Papillon Sal. However, if it doesn't work out the way I want to, I still have alternatives.
