SAL 25: Big letters

Travelling has meant a whole lot less sewing time this month, but I’ve managed a few stitches in spite of everything!

Here’s where I was last time:

Sampler 7 Feb

And here’s where I am now:

Sampler start of top left

For those of you who have been wondering how much bigger this little sampler is going to get, now you know! That’s the top border… So, still about 25% to go.

As always, it’s worth your while visiting the other SAL stitchers, even if they’re not posting progress today. Don’t forget about the difference in time zones; if you’re seeing me first, you may need to drop in to theirs a bit later to give them a chance to get their posts up.

    Well done Kate, it is hard to still stitch and travel at once

    I don’t indulge in cross stitch but I imagine it makes the perfect portable project so you don’t feel too ‘stitch deprived’ when travelling.

      This sampler is indeed perfect. The whole travel kit will fit into one smallish ziploc bag, hoop, fabric, and tiny tin with the bits and pieces. Plus it keeps me on track with the SAL, which tends to suffer a bit when I’m in the throes of a big quilt project.

    For being a travelling lady, I think you have stitch a lot 🙂 Well done!

    a couple more stitching sessions and you’ll be happy dancing ^^

      I will! Then, I’ll have the hard decision whether to pick up Anzac again, or do another monochrome piece – my favourite kind of stitchery, and I have an interesting idea waiting in the wings…

    It looks very dramatic, and you have made excellent progress.

  6. Wendy says:

    Wow you got a lot done in the last 3 weeks! You should be finished by the next check in

  7. You could take it on the plane and make more progress on the trip!

  8. Anything you can get done on a trip is an extra bonus. It’s looking quite lovely.

  9. Carole says:

    Definite progress! You’ll have this finished soon methinks 🙂

    I always loved working on even-weave, and found it very relaxing. I have a lovely Bell pull waiting to be rehung after a face wash! Enjoy tomorrow!

      It’ll be epic, Marie, I do wish more of the Fellowship could be there, but you never know, we may get some surprise appearances… We’ll be thinking of absent friends.

  11. I think I enjoy stitching monochrome most too, especially in variegated thread. You’ll be finished this piece in no time at all 🙂
