Woodland Sampler – Stage 21

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.

I really enjoyed stitching the toadstools and the ladybird in bright red after all the neutral colours.

I’ll be continuing to the right of the toadstools for the next update. The final creature will be making an appearance. Can you remember what is is?

Please check out what everyone else has been up to by clicking their names below. 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 17th July 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.

    what a lovely flash of colour ! and are they French knots I see on toadstool? I hate doing French knots lol.

  3. The toadstools are lovely but I really love the little ladybird!

    • I like the ladybird too but it seemed totally out of proportion when I was stitching it. Then I realised all the others were out of proportion as well. It takes me a while to catch on LOL.

  4. Ahh! The little Lady Bug is so sweet. And the bunny- gorgeous. Great progress and I cannot remember.

    I am moving on to a woodland creature piece also. I may follow your lead and work the backstitching as I go. I love that little ladybug and the pretty toadstools.

  6. I love the pop of red that the toadstools and ladybug offer. They really add fun to the piece.

    Such a sweet scene and a beautiful pop of red! Looking forward to seeing the last animal!

  8. I am a ladybug fan but those toadstools are adorable! No idea what the next forest creature will be 🙂

  9. The toadstools really pop! Love the way it looks. Are we nearing a happy dance?

  10. The lady bugs and toadstools are such a great splash of color!

  11. It is looking so cute! The red would make a nice change and it really pops among the neutrals.

  12. Love the ladybird or Maria nyckelpiga as we call her in Swedish!

  13. The rabbit is so sweet – but the ladybird adds a great pop of colour.
