SAL and Slow Stitch Sunday

I am quite excited.  No, I didn’t finish. But I did make progress.  Last check-in I was here:


11/3/19 SAL Update – Gingerbread House #5.

And this week I am here:


11/24/2019 SAL Update – Gingerbread House #5

BUT…that is not what I am truly excited about.  I had been working on a Christmas Stocking for one of my sons and then made a pretty big counting error which resulted in being off by quite a bit.  All those little stitches needed to be ripped out – UGH!!  So the piece went into time out.  Because I’ve rejoined this SAL, it gave me the courage to bring the piece back out and rip all the stitches.  It is back now to where it was before and is ready to be worked on.img_8083

About the SAL

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 sending Avis an email.

I am also linking up with Kathy for Slow Stitch Sunday.  Unfortunately, today I will not get to my stitching :o(, but tomorrow I will have some good time to put in.

  1. Love Santa! Great work!

  2. Your gingerbread house is going to be sooo cute! And the stocking is gorgeous already. (I’ve but projects away for the same reason. It is sooo nice when they are ready to go again!) Happy stitching!

  3. You’re doing great to get it out! I was supposed to be working on my cross stitch this year and haven’t even gotten it out yet☹️

  4. Great progress on the little house and hooray for the stocking making a reappearance 🙂

  5. so pleased to see you’ve picked up the Santa project again!

    Love those little hexies, btw. So colourful too. And what a great looking Santa emerging here. Well done with giving this one another go!

  8. Hurrah, now the worst is over, and you are back on track! It hurts to pull those stitches out, but now it’s full steam ahead!

  9. It is so discouraging to make a counting error, but a little time out is perfect for the remedy and now it’s the perfect time to get on with it… and be ready in time for Christmas when all frustration will be forgotten! (hopefully!)

  10. Connie… thank you for the lovely comment on my blog… that really made my day!
    Your email comes up as a “no reply blogger” so I can’t respond to you directly, but just know I really appreciate your comment!

  11. Happy to see Santa again — and that he’s off the “naughty” list! Your gingerbread house looks sweet, too.

  12. Oh, I´m so glad to see that Christmas stocking back on the road again 🙂 Well done!

  13. Well done on saving the Santa ! Projects that need frogging are the biggest deterrent to progress, but once fixed it gets fun again !
