Happy Sunday crafty people! It’s been another very speedy three weeks and here we are again with a SAL Sunday post. It’s been a busy three weeks including a trip to the Download music festival (or brownload as it turned out as it was pretty wet and very muddy!). I’ve not spent very long stitching but I have got some progress to share!
Three weeks ago my tigers were looking like this….
…. Today they are all done and I’m doing a happy dance!
Now since joining this SAL I have made a good dent in my pile of projects that I had started. The one I’ve chosen for my next project is very old and is a bit more of an undertaking! The project is from the Cross Stitcher magazine in 1996! The project was included in several issues of the magazine and I was annoyed to be missing one of them. I thought this meant that I would never get it finished but amazingly I found the missing issue on ebay for a couple of pounds and I am all systems go now! I hope to get it finished off in 2019 and then it’s only taken me 23 years!!!
So I should let you know what it is! It’s a floral alphabet designed by Sheila Hudson and I have 6 of the letters completed….
I’ve got three letters partially done so this time I’m going to focus on the Oriental Poppy which is currently looking like this….
I think I should be able to get it finished off and maybe more! I’ve no idea what I will do with the finished alphabet but it’s so pretty that I will enjoy the stitching and I hope that by the time I have finished the 26 letters I will have a plan for a finished item. Please let me know if you have any thoughts!
In case you haven’t seen one of my SAL posts before I should explain. SAL stands for Stitch Along and this one is organised by the lovely Avis. The idea is to finish off a UFO (or Unfinished Object!) and let me tell you I have lots of those! If you fancy joining in then contact Avis and she will give you all the information you need.
I’m looking forward to catching up with all the other blogs in this SAL group, please give them a visit too, I’ve linked them here so you can easily find them.
