For the past twelve plus years, this cross stitch project sat on a shelf in my spare room. This year I was determined to make progress and this SAL is definitely helping!

Here is where I was three weeks ago:.

Here is where I am now:

I am just trying to slowly make my way through this section where it appears I am out on every row:(. I finally realized my mistake. Instead of trying to do as many stitches as possible at one time in one colour, I need to go row by row and just do the one or two stitches of each colour at a time. It is a pain, but I think I’ll make less mistakes.

I had a request from a reader that I share all my progress pictures from this year, so here goes:

Wow this actually did make me feel better about this project as I can actually see a difference between the first and last picture. I hope I get to keep doing this next year!

Make sure you check out everyone else’s progress as there are some amazing projects in this SAL!

  1. so pleased you decided to join us in the SAL . . . those 3-weekly updates certainly helped you make good progress this year, and it’ll just keep on growing if you can stick with it next year!

    1. I will definitely be sticking with it as I was just given another cross stitch project for when I finish this one in about ten years

    1. I am hoping to finish this first page of the pattern before the new year. Unfortunately I also have a test sweater due that day too😳

  2. Such good progress! It is a shame that you have to work row by row and stitch by stitch, as you must be wanting to just power on. However, it will be finished, and every stitch takes you closer.

  3. You got this! Great progress ~ love the SAL, it really helps push you along and its fun too! I use to have curtains just like that on all my windows in a home we owned 🙂
