Getting Ready – Stage 12

Hello everyone,

Here we are again. Another three weeks have flown by and I’m still working on other things but maintaining good progress on Getting Ready at the same time. This one is from a kit by Design Works. The picture is part of an artwork by Ronald West.

This is where I was up to last time.

Stage 11 I’ve now squared off at the top right and done the backstitch detail as well.Stage 12 It feels good to have tidied that bit up. Now there’s another chunk to stitch across the top and that’s it. I seem to have inadvertently fooled a few of you last time. Several readers commented that there might be a happy dance this time. Sorry to disappoint. There’s still a way to go yet.

Please use the links below to see how we’re all progressing on our chosen SAL project. We live all over the world so you’ll need to allow for time differences. Posting takes place every third Sunday local time.

Our next updates will be posted on the 8th July 2018.

About the SAL

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 ONE unfinished project, or ONE 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, or start a new one with us, 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.

  17. The way you are stitching this must be so satisfying every time you finish a section. Rather than doing colours all over. Being able to see fully completed sections is really cool.
