Eight Love Letters to Sally London at Rainbow Gallery

Cosmopolitan Sally, Stitched by Me

The newest series from Leigh Designs is called "Sassy Sallys" and it is a love letter to Sally London, the general manager of Rainbow Gallery.  Each of the eight Sallys are stitched entirely with Rainbow Gallery threads and each has a stitch guide.

You can check out Pat's Sallys on her blog.  She did the Ugly Christmas Sweater and the Car Hop Sallys.  Of course if you want to stitch yourself a blonde Sassy or you want a redhead, it's easy to change the hair color.

These are for you, Sally!  Thanks for everything….
