Well…It’s update time!  I participate in a wonderful SAL.  This SAL is very different than most in that each participant works on their own project (the same one each month) and shares their progress every three weeks.  It is such a huge motivator as I need to show progress each time I post!  Here is where I am now on the Christmas Stocking for my son:



I FINALLY finished that cream colored background stitching.  I’m not quite sure why it took so long, it is super easy (only a half cross stitch), but boy was it boring – rows upon rows of it!  The back stitching for the name is the only part left in that section.  WooHoo!!  And…here is where I was the last time I posted:IMG_1095

I am very pleased with the progress of this project.  Many hours were put in over the last three weeks and it shows.  I guess you can tell that I am a super slow stitcher, but I really enjoy stitching and it doesn’t bother me.

If you get a chance, please take a look at what the other participants of this SAL are doing.  They are a group of VERY talented stitchers.  Here are the links to their blogs:

  1. I can see that you’ve put a lot of hours into this again. I’m also a slow stitcher but I don’t mind how long it takes. There’s no hurry 🙂

  2. Nice progress. Another slow stitcher here. Speed is not why we do it.

  3. Great progress, well done

  4. Well done! Huge progress. I too am a slow stitcher. It’s about the process and enjoying it.

  5. I am definitely a slow stitcher, but you made great progress. I also love half stitches for some reason 🙂

  6. The name plate looks great, I especially like the shade of green, very vintage feeling at the moment. Stockings always have so many things on them, it is fun to watch them appear over time!

  7. All progress is good, and there are no prizes for getting it done quickly. It should get more interesting from now on 🙂

  8. They are coming along nicely! What a treasure these stockings will be:). Slow and steady is all it takes.❤️

  9. the pleasure is in the stitching, not the finishing, Connie ^^ Take your time, and enjoy.
