Woodland Sampler – Stage 12

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 up to now.

The fawn is now completed except for a couple of stitches on the hooves.  I got the backstitching finished last night, just in time for today’s update. The blue triangle at the bottom is going to become another butterfly. Here’s a photo of the whole thing so far.

I hope to finish the doe for next time. I’ve been working on this most evenings and it’s paid off. In the past I’ve only done cross stitching in good daylight, which is a struggle to find at this time of year, but my electric light is good enough for this project. When the empty rectangle is completed at the bottom right it’ll only be half done. There’s such a long way to go with this project but it’s getting there.

Happy Christmas if you celebrate it. Our next updates will be posted on the 9th January 2022. That means I won’t see you again until next year. Best wishes for 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.
