Garden Shed – Stage 15

Here is my SAL update on the Cut Thru Garden Shed cross stitch kit. Designer credits are here. If you need a reminder of how it’ll all turn out in the end, you’ll find a photo in this post.

Just a very short update today. There’s lots of other (nice) demands on my time lately.

This is where I was up to last time.Stage 14b

This is where I’m up to now. Can you find the new critters?

Stage 15 

Here it is with the back stitched detail. I bet you can see the new animals now.

Stage 15b

That’s two more pesky snails added this time. I’ve now reached the 75% mark, yey! Next time, we’re going underground.

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 sending me an email. The address is on the right of this page. I’ll send you a few simple rules to agree.
