SAL Update and Slow Stitch Sunday

I’m still working on the Santa Christmas Stocking.  I was playing with other things in the studio and did not work on it as much this month as I did last month.  Here is where I was last time:img_4376

And this is where I am now:img_4584

Well, this is why I like to look at before and after photos!  Even though I didn’t get as much done as I wanted, I realize I did manage to get more done than I thought!  I really have to buckle down on this one if I want to finish by Christmas!

About the SAL in case you would like to join us

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. If you’d like to finish a project you’ve left unfinished for a while, or start a new one with us, you can join us by contacting Avis fromSewing Beside the Sea.


I am also linking up with Kathy at Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitch Sundays.

  1. And Christmas is only 2 months away! Go girl, go!!

  2. Some nice fill in work there, hoping more time to stitch now that the studio chairs are a complete set!

  3. YES! You are definitely making progress… keep going 🙂

  4. This is going to look gorgeous!

  5. 20 minutes each morning is really helping me, especially if you can’t find a larger chunk of time to work on it. Or you can try one full strand of floss stitched in each day. You can do it!!

  6. You are so industrious, love all your chairs. Sure you can get finished by Christmas – there is still 2 months to go.

  7. Yes, before and after photos are sometimes the only thing that help us assess how much we’ve done, especially when it’s a complex piece like this. Well done.

  8. here’s to hoping you find more time to work on this before next time, as Christmas is indeed looming ^^

  9. And then there are Christmas next year as well 🙂

  10. Counted cross stitch is definitely slow stitching but each stitch takes you closer to finishing. Keep sewing and it will get done by Christmas. Nothing like a deadline to spur us on!

  11. Lovely progress! You’ve been busy with other activities, but you are definitely getting closer to the finish line!

  12. It took me about three years to finish my grandsons stocking but he loved it then and now some 13 years later he still loves it.

  13. Santa looks like he’s just waiting for you to finish his mouth so he can speak! Here’s hoping you can get him stitched in time. (And if not this year, there’s a Christmas next year, too!)

  14. I’m trying to work out what I can get done in time for Christmas…
