SAL Sunday – 7

Happy Sunday crafty people!  It’s three weeks since my last SAL post and I’ve got a confession to make…. I’ve not picked up my cross stitch project once!  However I thought I would share the project that I am going to start next as last time I had finished off my ginger cat cross stitch.  This time I’m working on another cat theme but these kitties are slightly larger!

This is how I left it when I last picked it up and I wouldn’t like to guess how many years have passed since then!  Let’s hope that there will be progress to share in 3 weeks time.

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.

SAL Sunday – 6

Happy Sunday crafty people!  How is your weekend going?  We’re having a quietish weekend at home, pottering about in the house and garden apart from seeing the new Avengers film last night.  As always three weeks has whizzed past at break neck speed and it’s time for another SAL post.

Three weeks ago this is where I was…..

SAL Sunday – 5

Happy Sunday crafty people, it’s a dreich  (Scottish word to describe a grey dreary wet day!) day here in Midlothian.  Perfect weather for stitching!  I can’t believe it’s been three weeks since my last SAL post and I’m still not finished my cat project!

Three weeks ago this is where I was…..

And today I am here…..

I’m really close to finishing but I just couldn’t quite finish it off before today.  I’m enjoying it but I must admit I’m looking forward to being done with those pink flowers and picking out my next UFO to work on!

SAL Sunday – 4

Happy Sunday crafty people!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  We are having a quiet recovery day after lots of rugby, eating and drinking yesterday for the last day of the six nations.  We were supporting Scotland and Ireland and although neither won, the Scottish result felt like a victory after the amazing improvement in the second half and the fact we got to keep the Calcutta Cup!

The dishwasher is taking care of the last of the dishes and I think the afternoon plan will involve me stitching while the hubby catches up with the Australian Grand Prix!

But enough of that…. this is a SAL post.  If you haven’t seen one of these posts, SAL stands for Stitch Along and this one is organised by the lovely Avis.  The idea is to finish off a UFO (or Unfinished Objects!) and let me tell you I have lots of those! Three weeks ago this is where I was…..

I had hoped to be finished but I’m not!  So this is where I am now….

20190317_102252

I’m getting there and I’m enjoying this cute kitty cross stitch.  Maybe in three weeks time I will have it all done and be ready for another UFO!

SAL Sunday – 3

Hi crafty people, I can’t believe that it’s been three weeks since my last SAL (stitch along) post but it must be as it’s time for another!  The SAL is organised by Ava and includes a lovely group of stitchers.  All of their links are at the end of this blog post so you can pop over and give them some love. I also want to say a big welcome to Sharon who has joined us and will be posting her first SAL post, it’s great to have you in the group and I can’t wait to see what you are working on.

The idea of the SAL is to work on our unfinished objects (or UFOs) and post an update every 3 weeks.  If you fancy joining us please contact Avis (you’ll find her blog link at the bottom of this post).  It’s a lovely friendly group and it’s a great reminder to pick up your stitching projects.

Last time I had just picked up this cross stitch which I had started many years ago!  This is where I was 3 weeks ago……

Three weeks later I’m here….

20190223_210323

I’ve not done that much but it’s better than nothing and I’m enjoying it.  Hopefully I will get it finished before the next SAL in 3 weeks!

SAL Sunday – 2

Hi crafty people, I’m back with my second SAL (stitch along) post organised by Ava and including a lovely group of stitchers. All of their links are at the end of this blog post so you can pop over and give them some love. I also want to say a big welcome to Jocelyn and Carmela who joins us for the first time, it’s great to have you in the group and I can’t wait to see what you are working on.

So 3 weeks ago I was here…..

20190112_153106

and I can do a little happy dance because I got it finished! It’s far from perfect (hello crooked whiskers I am talking to you!) but I am pretty pleased with it as it’s a long time since I did any cross stitch! I’ve not decided what to do with it yet so it’s staying as is at the moment!

20190124_131244

So I got to pick another UFO to work on. Let me tell you I have a lot to choose from and some are very nearly finished so I picked this one …..

20190124_131735

It really didn’t need all that much done and so…. happy dance number 2…..

20190202_181107

So I picked out another project which I will be working on in the next three weeks. Here is the starting point.

SAL Sunday – 1

Happy Sunday crafty people!  Today is a new kind of blog post for me as I’ve joined a group of lovely crafty bloggers for a stitch-a-long (SAL).  As one of my goals this year was to pick up some of my cross stitch projects this has been a great encouragement to get started and so every 3 weeks I will share the progress I’ve made.  The idea is to work on one project at a time until it is finished, I’ve got a box with quite a few works in progress so I started the month by selecting one.  I chose this cat, although I had only made a small start, I was drawn to it so it made the cut!

I’ve really enjoyed working on it in the evenings when we are sitting watching television and it’s kept my hands busy to get out of the habit of having a treat or three of an evening so hopefully will help the waistline too!  So without further ado here is my progress so far….

20190112_153106

It’s a wee bit messy and I’m fairly sure I’ve miscounted here and there but I’m just going to keep on going and not let perfectionism stop me enjoying the process.  I hope you are finding time in 2019 to do things you enjoy without the pressure for it to be perfect!

I’m looking forward to visiting 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.
