SAL Sunday 11

Happy Sunday crafty people!  I hope you are all safe and dry on this stormy Sunday!  It’s perfect stitching weather here today and that’s lucky as it’s time for another stitch along posts or SAL.   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.

So three weeks ago I was just waiting for one thread to arrive so I could complete this…

SAL Sunday 10

Happy Sunday crafty people!  I hope you are having a fab weekend.  We managed to get our patio finished off yesterday, the last of the big garden jobs for 2019!  Now we can just enjoy the space and focus on the fun gardening jobs.  Anyway, that’s not why I’m here today, it’s time for another SAL post!  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.

So three weeks ago I was picking up this ….

Three weeks later I have finished off the oriental poppy….

20190721_083844.jpg

and almost finished off the crocus (just waiting for one thread to arrive so I can complete it!)

20190721_083858.jpg

and I made a small start on the daffodil….

20190721_083915.jpg

 

These are such a nice size to work on.  Now the patio is finished I’m hoping I can sit outside and work on these over the next 3 weeks!  Fingers crossed the Scottish weather allows!

SAL Sunday – 9 – happy dance!

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….

20190609_121447.jpg

…. Today they are all done and I’m doing a happy dance!

20190630_132351.jpg

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….

20190630_132512.jpg

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….

20190630_132530.jpg

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!

SAL Sunday – 8

Happy Sunday crafty people!  It’s been three weeks since my last confession…. oops no SAL post!  Last time I hadn’t been stitching but as you will see I’ve got quite a bit done this time.  I had picked up a project which had been started several years ago and this is how it was ….

20190519_124612.jpg

Three weeks later and it’s looking like this….

20190609_121447.jpg

Just a few leaves to finish off, the tiger face needs filled in and some back stitching and it will be done.  The pattern has “the tiger” stitched at the bottom but I think I will leave that off as I don’t really think it looks good.  I’m fairly confident that these two cuties will be finished off before the next SAL post in three weeks but who knows!

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!

20190519_124612.jpg

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.

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.

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!

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.  It’s a really friendly group and it’s really helping me to be motivated to keep stitching (although not as fast as I would like!)

Three weeks ago this is where I was…..

20190317_102252

And today I am here…..

20190407_103346.jpg

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…..

20190223_210323

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.
