SAL Sunday 2020 – 15

Happy Sunday crafty people and welcome to the latest SAL post. I’ve been doing quite a bit of stitching this last 3 weeks but most of it has been on some Christmas gifts which are top secret at the moment! All will be revealed after the big day but I’ve got some fun designs that I purchased from Etsy and my hubby requested one for a friend which is very funny and also from a fellow Etsy seller. I did do a little stitching on my sunflowers too just to keep making some progress. Last time I shared this photo of my stitching….

Three weeks later and I’ve got a little bit done…..

I also treated myself to a little needle minder from Etsy, I absolutely love it, it’s from the Dinky Trinket Co shop and everytime I pick up my cross stitch it makes me smile!

SAL Sunday 2020 – 14

Happy Sunday crafty people and welcome to the latest SAL post. It’s a windy day in Scotland and over the last three weeks we’ve had some more restrictions as the covid numbers are increasing again. There are so many loud voices complaining on social media and people who seem to be angry at the changes in our daily lives. Maybe it’s easier to be angry than scared, but I suspect there are more of us just trying to get on the best we can and follow the rules, we’re just not making as much noise about it! I think our Scottish Government is doing a good job with the limited powers they have and they are having to make really difficult decisions to try to save lives and minimise the harm which this pandemic is causing to people’s health and wellbeing and the economics of the country. I don’t envy them but I am grateful for their efforts. Anyway, I have strayed far off the topic of cross stitch! So I have enjoyed doing some stitching in the dark evenings and made some good progress. Last time I shared this photo of my stitching….

This is the progress I’ve made this time:

Happy Sunday crafty people and welcome to the latest SAL post. Three weeks ago I had no progress to report so I’m pleased that I’ve done some stitching and made some progress! Tthis is where I was last time…..

I seem to have gained some stitched as well as some creases!

Hi crafty people, I hope you are all having a good weekend. Can you believe it’s been 3 weeks since the last SAL post? Well I’ve made some good progress and the garden has too! First another sunflower pic from my garden….

SAL Sunday 2020 – 10

Hi crafty people, I hope you are all having a good weekend. It’s another overcast day here but the first of my sunflowers made an appearance this morning (perfect SAL timing!) so here it is….

I don’t really know where the time has gone in the last three weeks but I only managed a little bit of stitching. So here is where I was last time….

This what it looks like now…

SAL Sunday 2020 – 9

Hi crafty people, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!  We are having a bit of sunshine in Scotland (it’s been a rare occurrence in recent weeks!) but my sunflowers are still growing with no sign of a flower yet.  It’s just as well I have these stitched ones to keep me going!  This is where I was 3 weeks ago…..

Three weeks later and I’ve made some progress…..

Hi crafty people, just a quick update today for the Stitchalong.

This is where I was 3 weeks ago…

Unfortunately some of my stitches had to come out as I had miscounted so this is where I am now…

SAL Sunday 2020 – 7

Hi crafty people!  How are you all doing?  It’s a gorgeous sunny weekend here in Scotland and we have started our phase 1 out of lockdown!  It’s a very gradual process which personally I find reassuring as I do worry that the numbers will spike again if things go back too quickly.  However it’s lovely to have little freedoms, my husband had a socially distanced game of golf yesterday and I met a friend and her kids for a socially distanced walk!  Simple things that used to be taken for granted but it was so good to enjoy them again.  Anyway…. that’s not what I’m here for today!  It’s been three weeks since my last SAL (stitch along) post so it’s time for an update.  I had started a new project which many of you correctly guessed was sunflowers!

This is where I was 3 weeks ago…

SAL Sunday 2020 – 6

Hi crafty people!  It’s time for a SAL (stitch-a-long) update and it’s been another three weeks in lockdown so I’ve been very grateful for crafty hobbies to keep me busy!  This is where I left off three weeks ago……

 

20200418_182840.jpg

And now…..

20200510_075712.jpg

I am really pleased with it although it is a bit creased but that will (eventually!) get sorted.  I picked this project because it reminded me of my lovely old boy, Dudley who passed away several years ago.

Now it’s confession time!  The aim of the SAL is to finish off UFO (Unfinished Objects) in our stitching stash but I was feeling a bit fed up being in lockdown so I did a little online shopping and bought myself a new project for the SAL.  It’s unusual for me as it is stitched with wool rather than embroidery threads (I must admit I didn’t realise that until it came!!)  This is how far I’ve got so far…..

Can you guess what it is?
