Next To Go Stage 7

Hi everyone,

It’s time for a SAL update today. Last time my Next To Go cross stitch looked like this.

Stage 6

I promised to work on the dog handler’s jacket for this update and I’ve now completed another page of the chart. You’ll have to wait until later for his head and shoulders to appear. Here’s where I’m up to now.

Stage 7The next part will be from the bottom right upwards. There is also more foreground across the bottom of what is already stitched but I’ll just keep going one page at a time. The kit is from the James Herriott Collection.

Don’t forget to visit all the other blogs that are members of this SAL. We live all over the world so please allow for local time differences when looking for their updates today. Click the names below to see what they’ve all been up to. There’s something for every taste.

Next To Go Stage 6

Hello again,

It’s SAL update day today. I’ve been going up the wall this time….literally.

In the last update it looked like this.

Stage 5Now it looks like this.

Stage 6I’ve decided to finish this page of the chart before stitching further up so there’s still the top of the stones and some shrubbery left to do on the wall when I turn the page. I’ll be starting the sheepdog handler’s jacket next. The colours in the top photo are more accurate. The latest photo was taken at dusk.

Next To Go Stage 5

Hello everyone,

Here we are again. Yes, it really is three weeks since I shared progress on my SAL project. This time I decided to completely finish the page of the chart that I was working on. Having a mini goal really motivated me. Can you see the second dog appearing? This kit is from the James Herriott Collection.

Next To Go Stage 4

Hello everyone,

It’s time to share progress on my SAL project again. I’ve been getting plenty of time to stitch recently so there’s quite a change from last time. This kit is from the James Herriott Collection. It’s tough going but I’m still enjoying stitching it. I’ll do the back stitch at the end.

Stage 4 (1) Please visit the blogs of the other stitchers in the group by clicking the names below. There’s lots of variety and some members are starting new projects this time. Regular readers will notice that there are two new names on the list today. Susan and Kathy both have excellent blogs, each with a variety of crafts. Welcome aboard ladies🙂

Purple blanket update 6

Hi everyone,

Almost three months have gone by since I last showed you my progress on the purple blanket here. This is where I’m up to now.

Stage 6 

I’ve just finished the 4th 100 gram ball of yarn so thought you might like to see it again. I will eventually make my pattern available to everyone but not until I’ve finished my own purple wonder. There would usually be no way I’d be able to knit this during the summer but our temperatures have only reached a maximum of 14 degrees C here until the last couple of days. Today we have a sizzling 17 degrees! I’m not complaining. I’ve got a lovely Aran weight blanket to sit under to keep me cosy while I knit.
