Woodland Sampler- Stage 19

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.

This is where I’m at now.

That’s 3/4 completed :-). I’m about to begin the final row underneath, starting with a rabbit emerging from its burrow.

Please check out what everyone else has been up to by clicking their names below. Connie is returning after a long break. Welcome back Connie! We live all over the world so you may need to allow for time differences as we’re posting today at local time.



Our next updates will be posted on the 5th June 2022.

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.

  1. Ahh Brock the Badger – feels like he is staring right at you and the bluebells are gorgeous. Last row not long before a happy dance. Will you be glad to finish this piece?

    • Yes, I’ll be glad to finish this project but most of the bottom row is full stitches apart from a pile of half eaten hazelnuts at some point.

  2. Love your badger 🦡 & bluebells, although I better not show Luna.

    The badger is no longer peeping out he has fully emerged. You will be happy and dancing when you complete this piece. However it is so well worth making as it is gorgeous.

    That badger is cute. Now I am looking forward to seeing that rabbit.

  5. Beautiful Avis! Do you have plans for it when it is finished?

    • Yes, it’ll be framed and hung on the wall next to the second cross stitch I ever did. It’s a picture of a lady surrounded by wild flowers. I’ll show them together when this one is finished.

    that badger looks lovely, Avis. Much cuter than I imagine they are in real life!

  7. I love this whole piece. The animals are so happy in their environment.

    Love this. You are really making great progress.

  9. I thought the badger was a cute panda – what a cute badger with the beautiful bluebell patch.

  10. Love the badger, but he is looking a bit sad!
