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.

SAL-May

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.

SAL-April

It’s that time for another update for the SAL.

If you remember last time I had made all the boxes for the animals and was really nervous about it. Well I did make a mistake and was off by 4 stitches. Luckily it was on the right hand boxes and will be easy to fix.

You can see in the picture above the fixed box with the toucans and the wrong one above. So close 😀

So here is where I was last time.

And now.

I finished the top border and the toucans. Almost finished with the bottom border. Next is a really cute toad and a adorable lion. Going to catch up soon, hopefully next time. 😀

Be sure and check out what everyone else is doing. We have a returning member Timothy And a new member. Megan

SAL-March #2

I told you I’d be back soon, lol. These weeks just seem to fly by.

I’m still working on catching up on my Into The Jungle mystery SAL. Here is where I was last time. I had almost finished my sloth.

I was able to finish January’s clue and started working on February.

Here is January’s finish, I was really nervous to make all those boxes. One wrong stitch count and I could be in big trouble. I counted and recounted many times so I think it is right. We’ll see as I start filling in the boxes. 😏

And here is what I have so far. February’s clue has a leaf border on the top and bottom with the words Into The Jungle on the top. As you can see I did get the first word in. There is also going to be a couple of toucans in the box to the right.

Hopefully by the next update I’ll have finished February and March’s clue.

We have 2 new members this time, welcome Hayley andTony. Be sure and check out what they and the others have been doing.

Until next time.

SAL-March Update

I’m a little late, but life got in the way. 😀

Here is where I was last time.

And now a Happy Dance!!!!!!

I finally finished! This one seemed to take forever. I had to redo a lot of this one. First I started over then I kept making mistakes and ripping out. But it is done and I’m very happy with it. Now just have to wash and block it and find a frame.

For my next project I’m working on the mystery yearly stitch along from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. This year’s stitch-a-long is called Into the Jungle. Here is what we have so far.

And here is my sloth…

He was our January clue. Of course I’m behind, but I’m planning on catching up now that I’m done the the Winter one.

I think he is so cute. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the project, but I have 2 granddaughters who work at the zoo, as zoo teens, so it would be prefect for them. I’m probably going to make 2 of them so I don’t have to decide who gets it lol.

I’ll see you in two weeks, since I’m late, but be sure to check out what the others in the SAL are doing.

SAL-January

Sorry for the late update. Had a super busy week.

I did get quite a bit of stitching in, but sadly not much to show for it. Last time I showed you my start to Sleigh Ride

This is as far as I got

And then I decided I didn’t like the way it was looking. Some of the colors didn’t show up well on the background. You could hardly see the snow and snowflakes. So I decided to start over and use a darker background. So here I am now.

I’m much happier with the darker background. The white (and other colors show up much better) The second clue comes out on Jan 24th so I’m on track and not to far behind. Hopefully I’ll finish it before then and can start on the next part.

Be sure and check out what the other in the stitch-a-long have done. I’ll see you for the next update on February 11th.

SAL Update-December

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! Ours was great- loud, busy and fun.

Once the craziness settled down I was even able to get some stitching in.

I finally decided what I wanted to work on. I ordered the Winter Carriage Ride from The Frosted Pumpkin. This is a mystery pattern. I’m working on the first part on the pattern.

Here is what I’m working on.

Here is what I’ve been able to finish so far.

Not much so far, but it a start.

Hope you have a Happy New Year and see you next year in January for the next update.

Be sure and check out what the others in the SAL are up to.
