Woodland Sampler – Stage 5

It’s time for another SAL project update.  I’m stitching the Woodland Sampler by Anchor. The design number is PCE958.

This is where I was up to last time. The squirrel was peeping at the next stage 🙂

Stage 4

This is where I’m at now. I’ve completed more of the sky, some overhanging leaves and a peacock butterfly. I’d hoped to have stitched the greenery along the bottom of this section for this update but it wasn’t to be. I’ll be working on that next.

Stage 5

About the SAL

Please note this SAL is not accepting any more new members until further notice but this is what it’s all about anyway. 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.

  6. Aww that looks lovely, I’m really like this so far, just as any other project you work on 😀

  7. I had never heard of a peacock butterfly before and I had to google it. I was surprised to learn it is one of the most recognized. Not only is your project awesome and growing, I learned something 🙂
