SAL-Midnight Way #6

I’m so sorry I’m a day late with my update. Life has been totally crazy around here lately. Yesterday we had our family Thanksgiving dinner here at our house and between preparing the dinner, having everyone over, and decorating our Christmas tree (our tradition is to have Thanksgiving dinner then the Kids all decorate the tree) I totally forget about posting. We always have our Thanksgiving early so the kids can go to the in-laws on Thanksgiving day.

I did find some time to stitch though. I have made some good progress on the Cat & Bat store.

Here is were I was the last update……

And now……

You can see a bat in the window and next I’ll be adding in a cat.

I’ll hopefully be starting the banner at the bottom before our next update, but if not I’m enjoying this project, so I’m in no hurry.

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

SAL-Midnight Way #5

Well it’s that time again. I was able to finish the “Ghost Writer’s Book Shop”. I think the little ghost is so cute. I like the “Little Shop of Horrors“ plant in the window.

Here is where I was last time ……

And now……

I was also able to finish one of the bats from the “Bat and Cat” store.

I don’t think I’ll finish this project up before Halloween, and that is OK, I’m having a lot of fun working on it.

And you never know, I may find that I have some extra time to work on it.

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

SAL Midnight Way #4

Wow it is almost October, had to believe isn’t it.

Well I’m still working on “Midnight Way.“ I did get some time to week on it.

Here is where I was 3 weeks ago.

I was able to get the top of the building, most of the ghost, and started the door of the building.

Here is were I am now.

Hopefully next time I will have finished the “Ghost Writer Book Store” and get to start the Bat and Cat Pet store.

See you in 3 weeks.

Please check out what the others have been working on.

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.
