August SAL Update

Whew!  Another three weeks has gone by!  Where does the time get to?  We are doing lots of gardening, organizing, cooking and baking.  We are getting into the rhythm of social distancing.  A couple of the kids are “back” at school – zooming.  And I have my regularly scheduled zooms several times a week.  It doesn’t replace the face-to-face interactions but it’s great to remain in contact with friends.

Without further ado, here is where I was at the last update:img_9776

And this is where I am now:img_0183

The patch is working just fine.   There is a section where you can see the threads from the upper fabric – I have a “snag-it” tool (given to me by a friend in my local EGA) that I will use to try to tease them to the back side, but I really am thinking about adding a thin piece of gold ribbon vertically to that area to hide it.  We will see how it looks when I’m done stitching.

I am enjoying this SAL as it is a place to work on a project of my choice and post about it specifically every three weeks.  Please take a look at the links below to see all the other talented stitchers taking part in this SAL:

  12. I’m glad the patch seems to be working out well. You may not be able to find it yourself after the stocking has been in use for a couple of years!

  13. Great job of fixing the mistake! When it is finished, it probably won’t even be noticeable to anyone but you.

  14. You’ve done a great job of engineering the patch, and it’s hardly noticeable. Great work!
