SAL September

So it’s that time again. I didn’t seem to have as much time to stitch. Oh well. I did get some done though. I finished the January clue and almost done with February. The border seems to be going faster this time. Maybe I made all my mistakes in the first one and this way will be smooth sailing. (One can hope lol)

Here is last time

And now.

See you in three weeks

Be sure to check out where everyone else is.



SAL August

Wow those 3 weeks went by super fast. Was super busy but did get some stitching time in. I’m afraid that what I’ve been stitching isn’t very exciting.

I mentioned awhile ago that I wanted to make 2 of the Into The Jungle samplers, since I have 2 granddaughters that volunteer at the zoo. I’m going to give the samplers to them for Christmas. So I figured if I didn’t want to have a total freak out in December I need to get busy on the second sampler. So that is want I’ve been working on this time.

I’ve finished the top border and one of the squares. Once I finish the bottom border I think it will be easy to do the squares and catch up.

So it is kind of boring for you guys, since you have seen the sampler already, but here is want I’ve done so far on the second one.

And here are the 2 samplers together.

We have a returning member this time. Welcome back Connie. Be sure and check out what everyone else has been doing.


SAL July #2

Well I’m a little late getting this post out. We had a lot of family staying with us this weekend, so some stuff got put on hold.

Not much to share this time. I did a 4th of July sampler. I have finished it except for 3 scallops on the bottom row, so I’m going to say it’s a happy dance 😀

I haven’t been cross stitching much this last 3 weeks, because I’ve been working on my Ivy over the Door shawl. I’m almost halfway done. I’m really liking this shawl.

Be sure to check out what the others are have been doing. This time we have a returning member, Catherine and a new member, Deborah

SAL July

Sorry I’m late getting this update posted. I was out of town and didn’t have internet connection 😔

I did get quite a bit of stitching in. I decided to start the Welcome Spring sampler. I’m having a lot of fun stitching these samplers. They are on the smaller side and easy to work on. The finished pieces are 4″ X 4 1/2″

So here is my Hello Spring

I also received the July animal for Into The Jungle. This month is a cute little monkey.

And here is the piece so far.

Be sure to check out what the others in the SAL have been up to.

Today I get to celebrate 2 happy dances!

The first Dance is that I finally have caught up on my Into The Jungle SAL.

Here is where I was last update.

Here I’m am now.

May’s critter was an alligator.

And June’s critters were a couple of cockatiels.

It sure feels good to be caught up.

I caught up and then had 2 weeks until the update. So I had to find something else to work on. I decided to do The Frosted Pumpkin’s Hello Summer.

This is such a cute and easy project. So here is happy dance #2

There are 4 projects in this series. Not sure if I’ll start the next one or something different.

Make sure you check out what the others in the SAL have been up to.

SAL-May #2

Hello everyone. Wow those 3 weeks went by fast. I’m home now and trying to get over jet lag. The only good thing about 15 hours in a plane is that you get where you want to be, but also have lots of uninterrupted stitching time, as there is really nothing else to do 😀

Here’s were I was last time.

I finished the bottom border and moved on to the animals. I finished the frog and am almost finished with the tiger. Next is a crocodile, then I’ll have to wait and see what June’s animal is. They were so fun to stitch. So I’m close to catching up so I think I’ll have to find a second project to work on. Oh darn lol.

Be sure to check out what the others have been working on.

Update time for the SAL.

I was able to get some stitching done, but not a whole lot as we are traveling. One nice thing is that we were on a Trans-Atlantic cruise so we had quite a few days at sea. On the sea days we had a good lecturer I would go and listen to. I would bring my cross-stitching, so was able to get some work done.

Here is where I was last time.

And what I’ve finished so far. Almost done with the border. I’m ready to get some of the animals done 😀

Be sure to check out what the others have been working on……….

See you in 3 weeks.
