August SAL Update #2

For this update I was going to have my daughter’s Christmas stocking sewn up. I have tons of fabric and have been sorting through it but have not made the final decision for the back and the lining. This month, hopefully, I’ll make a decision and completely finish!

I did decide that for this three weekly update I would make Christmas ornaments. I need to make 9 of them and the goal was to start working my way through.

The first three. I really was enjoying making these!

The second three. Boy was I on a roll. After cutting out the tree, star and trunk pieces, everything else went very quickly.

And the last three!! Each tree took approximately 40 minutes to stitch up and once started, I couldn’t stop. Now… after I sew up my daughter’s Christmas stocking, what will my next SAL project be??? I could work on something that is in the WIP pile…. or I could start something completely new… I’m not sure. I’ll have it all worked out next time!

I love this SAL! It is different from some of the others as we choose our own project and then work on it and post our progress every three weeks. Please take a look at the other stitchers taking part in this SAL.

The goal was to just finish the cross stitching on the toe. Well, with just a bit more time, the stocking is complete! Now to sew it up. That is the goal for this next three week check up.
