SAL Update

Stitching:

This year I am determined and it at least sits on my coffee table now. This is where I was at three weeks ago.

Unfortunately I am still at this point. The past three weeks have been full of work stress in the form of year end and report cards which has kept me from stitching. I am hopeful that starting after Friday I will have lots of stitching time:)

Be sure to check out everyone else’s progress as there are some amazing projects!

And this is where I am now:

I hope you can see the change in the curtain this time. I have made myself sit and do an hour of stitching each day after I finish my work day. I do find the curtain tough because the colours are so similar to the colour of the Aida cloth! It makes it very difficult to find the holes!

My weekend:

I had an awesome weekend with my mom. I glued myself to her side for the weekend, well except for my 10.75km run in the rain this morning with Dennis.

We didn’t do anything super exciting as we’re both still not going around in public a lot. We watched several Hallmark movies and did a puzzle. The puzzle was a lot more difficult than we were expecting! A very low key weekend, but it was awesome to have company!

Have fun!

I am sorry this is so late!

And this is where I am now:

Can you see the change in the curtain?

At first I counted how many stitches I did each three weeks, but these last two I made goals for what to work on. Last time I had decided it needed to be either back stitching or the curtain and I went with the curtain, but didn’t get as much done as I wanted to:(. I just find the curtain tough because the colours are so similar that I’m continuously afraid that I’m going to mess it up:(

Wow three weeks can go fast!

I’m sorry for the poor lighting!

This is what it looks like now:

I changed how I did it this time. I didn’t keep track of my stitches but just made the goal to finish the basket before this update. I am counting this as success because the brown basket is actually finished- it is cut off by fabric, which I haven’t quite finished yet.

I have not yet made a goal for next time as it will either be to do some back stitching (my Leary favourite so I better not leave it all for the end) or to finish the curtain. This is another part I avoid as the colours are all so similar!

This is 203 stitches later. I feel like it should be more since I was on Spring Break, but I just haven’t been motivated to do anything. I did force myself on our bright, sunny days to get some stitches put in some stitches. This is actually my record for stitches so far!

I have found that I do not have a couple of the colours called for, but that will have to wait until I can leave the house again.

And this is where I am now:

It still doesn’t seem to look like much. I have put 188 stitches in since the last update. I have finished the columns that I had left undone (yes I try to work evenly across the columns and rows, but I did purposely try to do some more of the green as I figured that would at least. I think you may still have to take my word for it that I’ve done some stitching on this.🤣 Kathy’s suggestion to keep track of my stitches definitely inspires me, though we will see how far I can keep increasing to. Oh well, it’s still better than the eleven previous years!

SAL Update

I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks!

Stitching:

This is a picture of the project that has set on my shelf for the past eleven years. (And I’m sorry I didn’t realize I had it upside down on the last update). This year I am determined and it at least sits on my coffee table now. This is where I was at three weeks ago.

And this is where I am now:

It still doesn’t seem to look like much. I have filled in the curtain a bit more and started on the work basket contents. Kathy you will laugh as I did keep track of my stitches again and I put in 135 stitches this time which beat my 125 from the last update. I find I can only stitch on really bright days so that can be difficult when we have so many grey, rainy days. Oh well, it’s still better than the eleven previous years!

I wanted to do this separately so that people who don’t want to know about my life don’t have to wade through that!

Stitching:

I know it’s not a ton of progress, but that tie back wasn’t there before! I just counted and I put in 125 stitches over the past three weeks. I know I can do better, but it is more progress than I’ve made in the past eleven years:)

My First SAL update

Note: I’m sorry for no blog post last night. I went for my first iron infusion and landed myself in the ER when I reacted adversely. I didn’t get home until 1am:(. I promise I’ll get back to telling you about my life tonight.

Stitching:

Last year I had as one of my goals, to finish a cross stitch project I had started many years ago. Well it didn’t even move off the shelf. So this year I joined a Stitch a Long to get my butt in motion and get it done. Today is my first post. Here is where I am at. This was all done many years ago as I have to admit that I haven’t even touched this project in the past eleven years!! I have to admit the first picture I took was actually sideways and I didn’t even realize it. Boy is that embarrassing to admit!

This SAL has already worked as the project has at least moved from my shelf to the coffee table! I will definitely want to do something on it before our next post in three weeks.
