It’s that time! It has been three weeks since our last update on this project…I seem to be having trouble with wordpress – I can’t seem to go back very far in my images to grab a photo to post. I went back to my last post and copied the photo from there.
This is where I was last time. I have been more regular on working on this project and this is where I am now.
I worked a little on the panel on the right because it used the same color as what I was going to use near Santa.
I focused most of my effort on Santa’s beard and it is almost done! This project uses both the half cross stitch and the whole cross stitch. I find it interesting that I really enjoy the whole cross stitch more. It somehow feels finished and I like the look much better.
These are the other talented stitchers who are participating in this SAL. Please take a look at their beautiful work if you have time:
About the SAL in case you’d 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’m also linking up with Kathy at Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitch Sunday.
