SAL 66: Another petal almost done

Here we are again, time to show stitching progress 🙂

Here’s last time I had any progress to show:

And here’s now. I’ve definitely done a quarter now, apart from the background, which will be just mindlessly filling in with pale grey.

Do click on the links below and go and look at what everyone else is working on. If there’s no post up yet, try again later, as we’re a scattered bunch, all in different time zones. Welcome back to Catherine, and welcome in to Deborah 🙂

The next SAL will be on 19th August. I’ll be on holiday then, but I’ll try to schedule something in advance – it all depends on how busy I am between now and then.

    It does feel good to get to a specific mark on such a large project. Well done. 🙂

      Thanks! I’m strongly tempted now to start filling in some of the grey background, but I know that’s just procrastinating, wasting time so I don’t have to get on with the tricky bits!

  2. Catherine says:

    Well done on getting a quarter finished! There are so many beautiful petals, and you’re piece is really coming together nicely. Enjoy your holiday!

    A quarter! Good to reach a landmark in a piece like this I’m sure.

    Slow and steady wins the day, it is coming on nicely.

    1/4 done, that’s something to be very proud of!

    That is a milestone, hurrah! That background would be bothering me, too much of the same. I think I would have to do a thread occasionally, just so it wouldn’t all be waiting for me at the end! Lovely work, Kate!

    • katechiconi says:

      I’m actually looking forward to all that boring stuff, as there will be absolutely no need to count or check, just stitch away till it’s all filled in 😉

  7. Carole says:

    That’s a good milestone to reach and it’s looking great. I’d leave the background to last too. That’ll be so quick to do compared to the rest.

  8. teamwilsun says:

    Congratulations! I love all the detail and colors in this piece, typical Kaffe Fassett!

  9. I don’t think it’s taken long to get a quarter finished when you have so many other projects to juggle. Looks fantastic!

    Hurray! A quarter of the way done is a nice feeling of accomplishment! Beautiful stitching and I’m very intrigued with the pale gray background.

    • katechiconi says:

      The design calls for a pale warm grey. As I’m not using the yarns he specified, I’m going to pick one I think works with the colours I’ve already used.

    Bravo for getting to an area you marked as a goal!

    • katechiconi says:

      You know, I’d never, ever get this done if it wasn’t for the SAL. I’m too much of a one for instant gratification, so thank goodness for a tiny bit of peer pressure 🙂

  12. rutigt says:

    Like! A quarter done, that´s good work!!!

  13. craftycreeky says:

    Looks beautiful, it’s great to get to a landmark 🙂

    Thank you for the welcome. This looks like a big project!

    • katechiconi says:

      It is pretty big; I’m using a 30″ tapestry frame. Why I do these things to myself…. Still, I love this design, so it’s totally worth the time it takes.

    Looks great. Congratulations on getting a quarter of the way done.
