SAL Update

This would be my progress for the past three weeks…img_4584

If you are thinking that you can’t see any difference you would be right.  I somehow did not manage to get even one additional stitch added to this.  I’m actually really disappointed in myself.  I was getting up early and stitching for an hour before anyone else got up – every day – that really helped the progress.  Lately, I’ve been really distracted and flitting from one thing to the next.  There is no cure for this except to hold myself accountable to doing some stitching, any amount, each and every day.  I am leaving to go for a walk with the hubby right now (yes, I know, the air quality is bad, but both of us are going stir crazy) and when I get back I’m sitting down to do some stitching!

Please take a look at what the other stitchers who are participating in this SAL are doing – I’m sure they have some really great progress to show!  AvisClaireGunCaroleLucyAnnKateJessSueConstanzeDebbieroseChristinaKathyMargaretCindyHelenStephLindaHeidiJackieSunnyHayleyTonyMeganCatherineDeborahClare

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.

  1. Thanks for popping in and linking to us all anyway. Don’t worry if you haven’t stitched this time. See you next time 🙂

  2. I find the best time to stitch for me is in the evening, after dinner & doing the dishes, while watching re-runs of some of our favourite TV series.

  3. Not to fret, next time maybe.

  4. Sometimes life gets in the way. I didn’t get much done myself this time. Maybe next update 🙂

  5. Life gets that way sometimes. Here’s hoping you can get back on track before the holidays completely take over!

  6. Sometimes we just need to take a break. I’m sure you’ll get more done soon.

  7. Funnily enough I find it too easy to find time to cross stitch, hard to find time for anything else no matter how hard I want to do them. Cross stitch is like my comfort food haha

  8. I certainly know that feeling! I hope you enjoyed your walk, and happy stitching!
