Stitch-a-long

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….

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

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.

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 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….

…. 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!

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!

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):

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?

Happy Sunday crafty people! It’s time for another stitch along posts or SAL and I have to admit I haven’t done any stitching in the last 3 weeks!  Sorry to not have an update but I thought I would pop in to say let you know the answer to the question I left you with last time re what flower this square represents…..

20190811_115912.jpg

A couple of people guessed right….

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 ….

20190630_132530.jpg

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!
