Well…this is a day late! I had every intention of updating yesterday and then we decided to go on a family outing up to the city. We had a great time, but I completely forgot about the SAL update until about 10 minutes ago when I sat down to do some stitching.
This SAL is really fun. Usually a SAL is when many people all stitch the same project at the same time. This one is different in that each of the participants are stitching something of their own choice and updating once every three weeks. In that way, we all will complete something while having a great time together. The project that I am working on is “Candy Cane Santa Stocking” by Dimensions for my 17 year old son.
This is where I am now:
I started the red because I got tired of just using the cream for the background. I really like the contrast between the two colors. Here is where I was last time:
I worked on the letters and only have the back stitching on them left to do, I did a bit more of the cream background stitching and then of course the red. All in all I am pleased with my progress this month.
Please take a moment to take a look at what everyone else in this SAL has been working on for the past three weeks:
