Another three weeks have disappeared and it’s time to show a progress update on my stitch along project. This kit is from the James Herriott Collection and it was given to me by my lovely friend Lin. She was having a clear out and I was a very lucky girl! Anyway, this is where I was up to last time.
This is how far I’ve got this time. It won’t get any wider than this.Next time I hope to have the other dog more or less finished. You can see that I’ve already got the legs done. As is usual for me, I’ve changed the pattern! I won’t tell you what I’ve done just yet, in case I want to pull it out, but I’ve made an executive decision and I hope it’ll work.
This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different to other SALs in that we don’t all stitch the same design at the same rate. We choose an unfinished project, or maybe a new one, and show progress of its completion over a series of three weekly updates. There are no deadlines and no set amount to stitch. The result is that the space in our drawers full of WIPs (works in progress) is gradually being freed up to store lots of new crafty goodness. It’s surprising how much motivation I’ve gained from being in this SAL. If you’d like to finish a project you’ve left unfinished for a while you can join us by leaving a request in the comments below or sending me an email. The address is on the right of this page. I’ll send you a few simple rules to agree.
Margaret is our new SAL member this time. Her blog is full of gorgeous hand made items. She’s mastered a whole host of crafts so I’m looking forward to seeing what she’s chosen to make or finish first. Don’t forget to take a look to see how everyone else’s projects are progressing. Just click on the names below and you’ll hop over to their blogs. We live all over the world so you may need to allow for time differences but we post local time, every third Sunday.
See you on the 6th November 2016 🙂
