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

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…

Three weeks later I have made some progress….

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?

This SAL is organised by the lovely Avis. and she does a great job of keeping us on track, so a big thanks to you!  We are welcoming back the lovely Helen after a short break, it’s great to have you back in the gang!

SAL Sunday 2020 – 5

Hi crafty people!  It’s time for a SAL (stitch-a-long) update and I have had quite a bit of time for stitching due to being on lockdown!  Three weeks ago this was my project…..

 

20200328_180419.jpg

Currently it’s looking like this….

20200418_182840.jpg

Last time it wasn’t very clear what I was stitching but I hope that it’s now a bit clearer that it’s a cat’s face.  I need to have a look through my threads to find some greens as the eye on the pattern is yellow but I want to make him look more like my late grey cat who had beautiful green eyes.  Maybe that will be done in the next three weeks!

This SAL is organised by the lovely Avis. and she does a great job of keeping us on track, so a big thanks to you!  We have a new member of the SAL this time, so welcome to Sherrie, it’s great to have you with us. Sherrie brings our number up to 30, which is amazing!

SAL Sunday 2020 – 4

It’s only been three weeks since the last SAL (stitch-a-long) but what a lot has changed, we are currently on lock down and thankfully safe and well.  I thought I would have done a lot of stitching but my mind has been so distracted with all the news and changes in daily life.  However I think we are starting to find our routines again and my concentration is starting to improve.  This is where I was last time….

 

20200305_124959.jpg

and this is the progress I’ve made since then…

20200328_180419.jpg

I think there is a bit of progress and hopefully in another three weeks there will be some more!

This SAL 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.

SAL Sunday 2020 – 3

Happy Sunday crafty people! I’m back with another stitch along (SAL) post and I’ve managed to squeeze in a bit of stitching since the last post 3 weeks ago.   I was here last time….

20200216_091331.jpg

…. and I’ve got to this stage now….

I’m making pretty good progress and I’m very thankful for my new glasses as I don’t think I would have managed the subtle shades of grey without them!

SAL Sunday 2020 – 2

Happy Sunday crafty people! I’m back with another stitch along (SAL) post and I’m delighted to say I did a little stitching!  I was here last time….

 

20200126_093752

I’ve made a little progress and definitely feeling  my stitching mojo is coming back!

20200216_091331.jpg

I’m really enjoying this project, although it’s very grey I think it’s a beautiful picture and it reminds me so much of my cat Dudley who is greatly missed, I’ll need to swap the eyes to green as they are yellow in the kit.

SAL Sunday 2020 – 1

Happy Sunday crafty people! I’m back with another stitch along (SAL) post.  I think I’ve missed a couple of these and I’ve not really been feeling like picking up my cross stitch.  I decided to pick up a different project to see if that sparked some stitching enthusiasm.  I’ve had this project for a few years.

20200126_093732

This is the starting point for 2020, I’ll be back in three weeks and hopefully I will have some progress to share!

It’s been a hectic few weeks and I’ve hardly posted to my blog.  I’ve been busy making orders for my Etsy shop and building up stock for some Christmas craft fairs.  I had my first one last weekend and it was a fab day with lots of people visiting us.  Here I am in all ready for the shoppers to arrive.

Three weeks ago I was working on this mystery square….

20191101_105928.jpg

 

There were various guesses for the flower in this square and a Avis and Sunny got it right…..

20191124_092846.jpg

Well done ladies!  I’m not sure that it looks that much like blue bells but it’s quite pretty!  I also managed to complete this square since the last SAL post….

20191124_092916.jpg

I also made a start on this one….

20191124_092950.jpg

So in the tradition of my SAL posts any guesses on what the flower is (remember I’m not working in alphabetical order, I just pick based on my preference!).  I hope that in three weeks time I will have this one finished off so I can reveal the completed square and see if anyone guessed right!

SAL Sunday 14

Happy Sunday crafty people! I’m back with another stitch along (SAL) post.  I was away on holiday for the last one so it’s been 6 weeks since I shared an update.  This SAL 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.

Three weeks ago I was working on my sweet pea square from my floral alphabet.  I haven’t been doing these in any order, just hopping around depending on my mood to pick the next one.

So last time I checked in I was here, (close to finishing):

 

20191013_191838.jpg

This time I have finished off the sweet peas….

20191101_105917.jpg

…and made a start on the next square….. anyone like to make a guess which flower I’m currently stitching?

20191101_105928.jpg

 

I hope that in three weeks time I will have this one finished off so I can reveal the completed square and see if anyone guessed right!

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, we’ve had a couple of stitchers step out this time (sorry to see you go Helen and Clare) and we are welcoming back Connie who has been on a little stitch-along break.
