Christmas Project: SAL Update 3

 

In the future, I need to remember to only stitch 2-over-2 on 32-count evenweave. My idea of working on this during my lunch hour did not work out because the stitches are soooo tiny that I can only work on it under my Ottlite with the magnifying glass. It is so much fun to watch Santa emerge, though!  (I took a photo with my needle to give an idea of just how small this piece is.)

The photo below shows my progress in our last SAL update. Please note the colors in the photo above are more accurate. It was dark out, so I had poor lighting for the photo below.


Please stop by to see the wonderful projects everyone else in our SAL is working on.

Thank you for stopping by!

Christmas Project: SAL Update 2


 

I actually managed to work a bit of stitching into my schedule! 

The nearest craft store no longer carries waste canvas, so I ordered some online. As of yesterday, it had not arrived. Determined to get started on this project, I searched through the cross-stitch fabrics I have here at home and found a perfectly-sized piece of 28-Count Evenweave. I chose to use that instead of the holly fabric shared in our last update.

This project is #32 in the Santa Designs section of the book 501 Cross Stitch Designs by Sam Hawkins. 

I do hope you will stop in and see the lovely projects everyone else is working on!

Christmas Project: SAL Update 1


I will be taking a brief break from Twilight Duel. However, there is a Christmas project I will be working on as soon as I am able to pick up more waste canvas. It is hard to see in this photo, but the white fabric is a holly print. The project is small enough to travel with and to work on during my lunch break.

Please stop by to see what everyone else has been working on. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update #28

Another 3 weeks have flown by without a single stitch added to Twilight Duel. There are so many demands on my time right now, when I do finally have the time in the evenings, I do not have the energy.

So, I may switch to a smaller project to work on during my lunch breaks throughout the week and have something to show for our October 17th update.

I do hope you will stop by to see what everyone else is working on!

Thanks for stopping by!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update #27

Today I should finally have some time to get some stitching in! Unfortunately, I still have no progress to share. 

I do hope you will stop by to see the progress other members of our Stitch-Along have made.

Our next update will be on September 26th.

Wishing you all some happy stitching time!
