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.

SAL 65: No stitch, no time…

Not quite how the proverb goes, but very expressive of the situation around here.

Not a progress shot…

I’d planned to get a bit of stitching done over the past few days, but virtually everything I touched this week took about three times longer than expected, and some-thing had to give. Sadly, it was my embroidery 😦

Having said that, everyone else in the Stitch Along will have some-thing lovely to show you, so nip over there and take a look.  Here are the links:

I’ll be back on 29th July, hopefully with some actual progress to show!

SAL 63: a stitch or two more

Not terribly impressive this time, I fear.

I’ve had other activities gobbling up my time, none of which are interesting enough to blog about except what I’ve already shown. So the stitching, being without urgency or deadline, has fallen by the wayside. Sorry about that…

Here’s last time:

And here’s now:

Can you actually tell where I’ve done some work? I know… it’s hard, isn’t it?

Do go and look at everyone else. I’m sure they’ve managed more than I have! If there’s no post up yet, try again later, as we’re a scattered bunch, all in different time zones.

The next SAL will be on 17th June. See you then.

SAL 62: froggit, froggit

In, and then out again…

I’ve done more stitching than it appears this time. I got a block of pale green done top leftish, but there was a problem. I’m not using exactly the same colours as the design as I can’t get them here. My colour substitutions just looked wrong in this particular area, so I pulled a load of stitches out and replaced them with an alternative green which I feel looks better. It’s a slight deviation from the design, but I’m happier with it.

Here’s where I’d got to last time:

And here’s where I am now.

Do go and have a look at what the others in the group are working on. We’re all over the world and in different time zones, so if you don’t see a SAL post yet, pop back later.

The next SAL is due on 27 May, so I’ll see you then.

SAL 60: and another petal

I can’t quite believe how fast time is flying right now.

It’s time for the Stitch Along again.  Here’s the usual before shot:

And here’s the after. Respectable progress, if not that impressive. I go through phases of being keen to work on this, and other phases, like now, when there are three other things calling my name, one of them urgent!

Sorry about the rubbish blurry photo. I took it late at night and was rather tired so getting things properly in focus was a step too far…

PS: apologies to those on the list I missed off earlier, I think I missed an update email or two!

SAL 55: a very little progress

I had big plans for lots of progress.

And then I got a summer cold, I’m feeling yuck and my eyes are streaming. I don’t normally get colds, and have no idea where this one came from, but it’s here with a vengeance. So most of the time at the end of the week which I’d dedicated to catching up with the Dahlia piece went down the tubes. I did get a little done.

BeforeAnd after. A little more of the palest lilac, and a little of the pale green.Oh well, that’s how it goes sometimes. I’m sure everyone else will have something to show you. As always, if there’s nothing up when you go and look, give it a little time, we’re all over the world and in different time zones.
