SAL 37: creeping slowly closer

This poor sampler is getting a raw deal.

So many other projects are stealing all my attention. But I did manage to do a little stitching. Again, progress isn’t impressive, but it is progress…

Where we were before:


And where we are now:


Next time it’ll hopefully look a bit different; more letters, maybe some more border, something like that.

As always, the other ladies in the SAL have beautiful work to show. Do hop over to their blogs and take a look:

    Raw deal, my goodness, your funny. With everything else you achieved these past few & a trip away, your sampler should be thankful to get any time 😁

      I’d have taken it with me on the trip if I thought I had a hope of seeing what I was doing, but the lighting in camp was more of the romantic rather than task style…

  3. I particularly love the border down the right hand side 🙂

    Will the bottom border be the same as the top or different again? Looking gorgeous.

    It looks great, I know what you mean about several projects vying for your attention, I’m trying to finish a few projects at the moment so I don’t have quite so much going on!

    Every stitch counts. This is a beautiful sampler. Thank you for the warm welcome.

  9. No need to be hard on yourself Kate. Just enjoy the stitching when you get around to it. Looks great!

    Considering how much you’ve been gone and everything else, I am amazed! It’s looking good!

    I´m sort of glad I wasn´t the only one taken it slow this time 🙂 It´s the best thing with this SAL. You can stitch more or less, whatever you want!
