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?

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.

Woodland Sampler – Stage 20

This is where I was up to last time.

The badger completed the far right of the third row. I then moved onto the bottom left corner. You might remember the primroses from a few updates ago. Only the tips of the rabbit’s ears were done before this update.

I’ll be continuing to the right of the rabbit. There’s some toadstools and more greenery coming up.

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.

This is where I’m at now.

I really had to push myself to achieve my target of one mini chart per update. I’d stitched some in week 1 and then nothing in week 2. Thankfully, I was able to put in many hours in week 3 and it was mainly full crosses. I’m hoping I’ll have 3/4 finished for the next update.

This is the bigger picture.

I’ll be working on a section to the right for the next update which shows the rest of the badger and more bluebells.

This is where I’m at now.

I’ve finished the butterfly in the top left and added lots of greenery and part of a stream. Also, the fawn now has hooves :-). I don’t look at the photo of the whole picture while I’m stitching and had to check when the piece of chart I was working on suggested stitching with scarlet thread at the bottom. I’d forgotten all about this splash of colour. It’s one of my favourite woodland finds that we don’t see here very often. Any ideas?

I’ll be working on a section to the right for next time. There’s more of the stream and the face of a very special and beautiful animal coming up.

I’ve been working under the fox this time. I finished the greenery where he is sitting, a clump of primroses, part of a butterfly and more greenery with someone hiding at the bottom. We’ve got quite a few primroses flowering in the garden at the moment so I enjoyed stitching those.

I’ll be working to the right of the primroses next. It’ll be almost full coverage with a stream and more greenery plus the rest of the butterfly. I’m going to try to keep up the same pace for every update. You’ve all been very patient with me for taking forever to get this project done. Thanks for all the encouragement.

This is where I’m up to now.

That’s both deer finished except for the fawn’s hooves which are on the next page down. It was an easy section to do because of the lack of three quarter stitches and there was very little back stitching as well. I quite enjoyed stitching that bit. The next bit isn’t full coverage but there’s loads of fractional stitches and not too many colour changes. It’ll be fine.

Anne has decided to bow out of the SAL for the foreseeable future to concentrate on other exciting projects. Please check out what everyone else has been up to by clicking their names below.

Cirque des Triangles – Stage 1

Hello everyone,

The last three weeks have flown by. I’ve been very busy Spring cleaning and decorating for a while, so there hasn’t been a lot of spare time to stitch but this one is difficult to put down once I get started. The design is by Ink Circles and it’s called Cirques des Triangles. The chart is very clear and easy to follow. I’m stitching on white 16 count aida fabric with DMC shade 4030 variegated thread. Just look at those lovely colour changes in the thread at the bottom of the first photo. Me and Claire are stitching the same design this time but we are going to get very different results because of our fabric and thread choices.

Next To Go Stage 11

Hello,

It’s been a very busy three weeks here but I’ve still stitched quite a lot this time. This is how far I’d got for the last update.

Stage 10

Now, I’m up to here 🙂

Stage 11

So, that’s the top of the wall and the greenery behind, as well as the rest of the second dog and the background finished. I’ve had to scroll the bottom part around the frame so I could work at the top left, so you’ll have to wait to see it all together at the very end. The way things are going, this project could be finished by the end of January.

The kit is from the James Herriott Collection.

Steph is our new SAL member this time. I’ve just read a few of her latest posts. She’s up to all sorts! Is there a word meaning more than prolific? Anyway, I can’t wait to see which project she’s chosen for the SAL.

Next To Go Stage 10

Good morning,

Here is a progress report on my SAL project. This is how far I’d got in the last update.

Stage 9

Here’s where I’m up to now.

Stage 10

Can you find the bit I’ve done this time? No? well, it’s all along the very bottom of the picture. Lots of lovely thread changes. There was actually quite a bit of work in this part and all of the foreground is finished now. I’m going to stitch the rest of the dog for next time.

The kit is from the James Herriott Collection.

Helen is our new SAL member this time. I can’t wait to see what she’s been up to.
