Woodland Sampler – Stage 4

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.

Stage 3

This is where I’m at now.

Stage 4

It’s growing very slowly. There were lots of fractional stitches to do but I’m plodding along. I did some of the trees and sky plus the squirrel’s muzzle. It looks a bit strange I think but I checked the chart and the backstitched detail will put that right. I did panic at the beginning of last week because I’d only managed to do a few stitches since the last update but I picked up a bit in week 3.

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.

Stage 3

I decided to leave the back stitching until I’ve finished all the way across the top. I might regret it! The greenery under the owl is now filled in and I’ve got most of the red squirrel done. I was hoping to finish this piece of the chart but there’s a lot more background to add. I hope to at least square it off in time for the next update.
