I am so glad this update landed at the start of my holiday so that I will have a clear picture of how much stitching I get done over the holiday:)
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 three weeks ago:
Here is where I am now:
I know it doesn’t look like much but with getting all the white at the bottom filled in, it felt like a lot. I think it’s because it finished off a whole area, but unfortunately not the whole first page
My goal is to finish the first page before the next update. I have holidays, I have an OTT light now and I have motivation because I am quite close. Let’s hope all goes according to plan!
Make sure you check out everyone’s projects as there are some truly outstanding projects being done and a very wide variety!

It is always satisfying to get those broad areas finished. Enjoy your holidays. As a retired teacher I know how precious holidays are!
Oh I am hoping to enjoy every moment!
Your progress gets you closer to a page completion! Great job 😊
Yes I am feeling like I might actually make it to the end of page one now:)
Well done, I abet you make it to the end of the page!
I hope so! Maybe 15 minutes a day?
I used to stitch one thread at lunch time, and I was amazed at how much I got done, by just committing to one thread.
Ok that is a good idea!
here’s to hoping to find lots of time for more progress ^^ Enjoy your holidays!
I hope so too!
White isn´t the funniest color to work with in an embroidery! You´ve done great progress!
Thank you. With this Aida cloth I actually find the creams and wife’s the worst to do. At least there is a little bit of contrast with the white.
Enjoy the break and you could enjoy an end of page happy dance next time if you like 🙂
I sure hope I can!
This is not a race it is your hobby AJ, so take you time and enjoy. Its a beautiful project from what I see but I have learnt from experience that if you are not enjoying stitching then you will be more likely to put it down. I have a cupboard full of unfinished projects because I was in to much of a rush to actually slow down and enjoy the journey. This group is so great and supportive so make the most of it. xx
That is great advice and I will keep it in mind. Thank you!
