When I was a teenager I loved the work of Paula Vaughn and my grandma very kindly bought me the Paula Vaughn cross stitch book “A Quilt for All Seasons”. I immediately started on the January one. I’m not sure when exactly this was, but the project then languished on a shelf in my spare room for twelve years after I moved into my condo. Last year I heard about this SAL and decided it may help me actually get this project finished.

Here is where I was last update:

Here is where I am now:

I really had plans to finish the first page by this update, but unfortunately I’ve had quite the three weeks! I’ve had Covid, three of my appliances broke, and then to top it off I’ve had problems with my visa due to the appliances. I am really ready for life to go back to quiet and boring so I can spend more time stitching!

Make sure you check out all the other members of this SAL as the projects are truly spectacular!!!

    1. Yes I think it will too! I meant to pick it up yesterday but then my Visa card was declined at the grocery store and I ended up coming straight home to figure that out!

  1. You’ve had a rough three weeks, with more than your share of unexpected happenings! I think you have done well to get anything done. I am pleased to hear that you have recovered from Covid….that must be a real relief for you.

    1. I actually think I’m noticing the lack of lung capacity more now that I’m moving around than I did when I was actually home sick

  2. Hope you’re feeling better — and that things get sorted out with Visa! It’s probably one of those things — they look at your purchase history and think, who buys three appliances in a three week stretch? We’d better shut this down. Hopefully things will return to normal and you’ll have more time to stitch.

  3. This is a hobby something to relax and enjoy so do not worry if its slow progress. Every stitch is one less to do next time, and as long as you enjoy what you are doing that is all that matters. Some people make wonderful progress and others not so much but no one is judging so enjoy x
