SAL September

Time for another SAL update and I can’t believe it’s September already. This year is sure going by fast!

I have decided that I want to get some UFO’s finished, and since I was on Halloween, I decided to stick to that theme.

I found this project and I think the last time I worked on it was October of last year, so almost a year ago. It was a mystery SAL from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery . The name of the pattern is Midnight Way. I really like their patterns, they are so cute, have lots of color and seem to stitch up fast.

Here is were I was a year ago……..

And here I am now…..

As you can see I have had some time to stitch these last 3 week ( well really the last month.)

I was able to finish “Broom Hilda’s” broom shop and start on the “Ghost Writer Book Shop”. The next shop is going to be a pet store and then there is a border under the shops. It has been fun watching the shops grow.

Looking forward to seeing how much I can get done by the next update.

Please check out what the others in the SAL have been up to and I’ll see you in 3 weeks.

SAL August

Unfortunately I haven’t had much time these past 3 weeks to work on my stitching, but that is a good things as I’ve been busy doing other things 😀

I did want to share with you though my Black Hat Society all framed up. My friend loved it.

Don’t sure what I will be working on next. I don’t want to give up totally on “Getting Ready” but feel I need to work on something with more color. Maybe I’ll have to trade off on 2 different projects for awhile.

Please check out what the others in the SAL have been working on and I’ll see you in 3 weeks. Hopefully I’ll have more to show you.

July SAL #2- Black Hat Society Happy Dance

Well I finally have a happy dance to report! I have finished my Black Hat Society. I’m very excited that I got it done before my “deadline”. Also very glad that I started when I did because, I never would have made it otherwise.

Here’s where I was last update…..

And now the finished project…….

I’m sure my girlfriend is going to love it, but I’ll let you know in the next update.

I think now I’ll work some more on Getting Ready, but I also have some UFOs I want to work on so maybe I’ll alternate between those projects

Please be sure and check out what the others are working on, and I’ll see you in three weeks.

SAL July

Happy 4th of July.

Time for another SAL update. This summer is very busy and I’m having little to no time to stitch. (Which is not a bad thing, just means I’m busy doing other fun things 😀) I was able to squeeze in a little time to stitch. I need to find some time soon to work on this, as I want to finish this by the 1st of August to give to my friend.

Here is where I was last time……

And now…….

I was able to get most of the hat band done and just have the brim to go.

Please check out what the others in the SAL have been able to do these last 3 weeks. See you in 3 weeks.

SAL May #2- Black Hat Society #2

How did it get to be the end of May already? It’s time for another SAL update.

I have been working on the Black Hat Society project these last 3 weeks. I think this was just what I needed, something without a lot of detail, that goes quick.

Here’s where I was 3 weeks ago…..

And now……

All I have left to do is finish the hat band and the brim, so I should be able to do a happy dance with a finished project for the next update.

Please check out what the others in the SAL have been doing and I’ll see you in 3 weeks.

SAL May-Black Hat Society #1

Time for another SAL update. I’m taking a small break from “Getting Ready”.

I have a project I want to do for a friend’s birthday at the end of the summer, so I thought I’d better start now.

The project is one I’ve done before and my friend really liked it, so I decided to make it for her birthday. It is a Halloween pattern from The Frosted Pumpkin call the Black Hat Society.

Here is where I am now. I forgot how fast this one is. Hopefully it won’t take to long to finish.

Please stop by and see what the others in the SAL are working on.

See you in 3 weeks.

March SAL-Getting Ready #11

It’s time for another SAL update. I was able to get some stitching in this time. I finished the lady’s other hand, the glass of wine, filled in the rest of the white lettering and started on the flowers in the vase. It felt good to use different colors besides black 😀

Here is where I was last update……

And today…..

Please check out what the others have been up to

February SAL-Getting Ready #10

I can’t believe it’s the last day of February already. This year is just flying by!

I have a mini happy dance to report this update. I finished the chalkboard! I finished all the black stitching and was able to do some of the backstitching of the words. I was so happy to see those words starting to take shape. At the bottom of the blackboard you can see the flowers shape and there is a little grey left to do. I also have some white left to do at the bottom, but I’m saying the blackboard is done 😀

Here is where I was last update……….

And now……..

I feel that now that I’m finished with the blackboard, I’m excited again to see the rest of this project progress.

Well I guess that is all for now. Please check out what the others have accomplished this update.

See you in 3 weeks
